Supreme Court rules out "exclusive" Olympic rights

In a move that will be hailed by the sports loving public in Sri Lanka the Supreme Court has over ruled an order by the Colombo High Court preventing MTV/MBC from broadcasting the Olympic Games. This ruling means that both MTV/MBC & SLRC can telecast the Olympics thereby ensuring better coverage of the games.

The inability of one broadcaster to telecast the games is something that we highlighted several weeks ago and it has been rightfully highlighted by the chief justice too.

This is indeed great news and we wish both MTV/MBC & SLRC all the best in their coverage of the London 2012 Olympic Games.
