This volume charts the debates over the provision of free-to-air telecasts of sport as a right of cultural citizenship, analyzing the complex economic, political, and sociological questions surrounding the increasingly tenuous ability of public broadcasters to compete for the broadcasting rights to the most popular and desirable sports and sporting events. Through comparative case studies, the contributors to this edited volume explore these issues in various locales across the globe.
