Citigroup forecasts that Nine Entertainment Company will lose between $A20m and $A30m per year on its coverage of Australian tennis. However, the firm notes that Nine is already losing about $A50m a year from its cricket coverage. The three commercial TV networks all hope to secure cricket broadcasting rights, with Cricket Australian expected to conclude negotiations for a new rights deal in early April. CA is also said to be close to securing a deal for pay-TV rights.
