UPDATE: Hopman Cup: Channel 7 Signs As Broadcaster

Channel Ten have decided to pass on showing the Hopman Cup in 2014, deciding to focus on Cricket instead.

Quote:
TEN has issued a brief statement saying its has “decided to pass on broadcasting the 2013-14 Hopman Cup.

“The network was unable to reach agreement with Hopman Cup Pty Ltd on appropriate scheduling of the event. The network wishes the event well in the future.”

TEN has been broadcasting the Hopman Cup since 2011 after 6 years on the ABC.

The Perth-based event is next due to take place from December 28 – January 4th but TEN’s sports focus over summer is on the Big Bash League which is staged from December 20 – February 7th.

As yet no other broadcast partner has been announced.

UPDATE:

Quote:
Seven has signed the Hopman Cup, after TEN ended its broadcast deal.

For the first time every session will be broadcast Live and free-to-air nationally (including in Perth) in high definition on 7mate, with the option of marquee matches to be televised live on Seven.

“We are delighted to be expanding our commitment to tennis across the summer and importantly delivering live coverage of the Hyundai Hopman Cup on our broadcast television platform,” Saul Shtein, Seven’s Head of Sport, said.

“Seven is committed to building its presence in sports across Seven, 7TWO and 7mate. We are driving home our leadership across three channels. The addition of the Hyundai Hopman Cup to our new Australian Open broadcast agreement adds further depth to our impressive portfolio of major sports events and further underlines our partnership with tennis in Australia, on television and across new forms of content delivery, including online, mobile and HBBTV.”

The event begins takes place from 28 December 2013 to 4 January 2014 at Perth Arena.

“We’re excited to see the Hyundai Hopman Cup build a relationship with Seven, a long term partner of Australian tennis,” said Tournament Director Paul Kilderry. “Now fans will have the opportunity to watch all the action live and free in Perth and around Australia as we continue to grow the event’s audience domestically. The strength of the 2014 field will complement Seven’s lead- in coverage to the Australian Open.”

Seven’s major tennis tournaments also include The Australian Open, The Davis Cup and the exclusive broadcast television rights to Wimbledon.

Re: Hopman Cup Loses Television Broadcaster In Australia

Wow, really? They moved into a massive arena and they can't find a broadcaster?
There's no huge name this year but the field is really deep. How bizarre.

Bugger

The ABC has four channels now, so hopefully it will get picked up by them like before?
