I'd guess all the major broadcasters have been contacted and that the Sky deal is the best on offer.

Supposed interest from private equity to hold a stake, not sure of the details but maybe they'd have a say in any future deal if they're adding to the mix in SL.

If Channel 4 is moving its headquarters to Leeds they might be interested but have the great and good considered them?

Have they shown any interest in rugby league?

Just because they’ve moved to the heartland doesn’t mean they’ll suddenly find an interest in our sport (more fool them)
