Ziggo, KPN, Delta and T-Mobile have made a proposal to Eredivisie CV to get hold of the Eredivisie broadcasting rights from mid-2025. Whether that will succeed is very much the question, since Disney has the most trump cards. In that case, the Eredivisie will remain with the pay channel ESPN, which is owned by Disney.
Currently, the profit that ESPN generates with premier league football flows away to the American shareholder. That is why the four internet providers want to try to keep the profit in their own country.
Canal Digital, SKV, Kabelnoord and Youfone could also have the rights after the contract.
Disney would be willing to pay 1.7 billion euros – 168 million per year – for the broadcasting rights over a period of ten years. The four providers will therefore have to overcome that.
