If true its good news especially if the ABC decide to co-promote and broadcast Socceroo matches... given its their primary channel that would indicate cross promotional work and hopefully some W-League as well... 

How will SBS react... will they sulk and think it should have been them or get behind Hal and support it...

A-League in talks to show games in prime time free-to-air deal

SEPTEMBER 16, 2019

A-League games will be shown on prime time free-to-air TV under a new deal being negotiated with the ABC by club owners ahead of the new season.
Saturday games at 5.15pm would be broadcast on both ABC1 and Fox Sports if the deal is agreed by all parties, giving the competition access to its biggest potential free-to-air audience.

Though some details of the deal still have to be ironed out, The Daily Telegraph understands that the various stakeholders involved are positive about the deal, with hopes it will be signed off well before the new season kicks off on October 11.

The proposed deal is the first significant move by the A-League club owners after they took control of the competition on August 1, even though the legal separation of the competition out of Football Federation Australia is still not complete.

Talks with the ABC began after a mooted deal with the Ten Network — which would have involved two games being shown exclusively on Ten’s main channel — fell victim to the merger of Ten’s parent, CBS, with Viacom in the US.

Detailed negotiations in recent days have centred on ABC taking Fox Sports’s production of the game, with hopes it will deliver an audience well into six figures after several years of dramatic decline in TV ratings for A-League games.

W-League games broadcast on ABC1 on Sundays have regularly drawn audiences of around 65,000.

Ten only broadcast A-League games on its subsidiary channels, with little incentive to promote the coverage.

This is not so bad... One would expect better exposure for the HAL on the abc offsiders program

Why is that?   You don't like FTA? (or just don't like Auntie ABC?)

because there will be zero promotion of the game without a commercial FTA partner. Plus ch 10 were going to be doing 2 games.

In their defence, the fixture was decided well before this deal was the reality. They were probably assuming some form of the channel 10 Fri+Sat deal was going ahead.

I wouldn't have put it past ch 10 to have walked away from the deal after seeing the fixture. the FFA notoriously gave SBS garbage games when they had it.

The eggball wankers on the ABC's own Offsider's program won't like that. 

They'll actually have to talk about football.

Good.
As a truly national competition the ABC is best equipped to get the game throughout Australia.
Who knows ,some of those apparent dud games could be surprises.There is always one over achiever team.

At least we wont thave to worry about being sold out to cheap gimmicks or the threat of oblivion if ratings dont do well early on.

It’s the same. They don’t watch ABC any more than they watch FTA.

ABC has deliberately been targeting younger demographics. I would suggest this is just part of their strategy to do so

ABC get more ratings than 10, so I can't see how this is bad for the game. Plus they already give the A-league far more coverage than other channels on the news programs.

Not quite.

Network 10: 16%

I've logged in just to say I'm happy with this! ABC has no ads. Plus there won't be as much pressure for ratings being on ABC, or profit margins or that stuff whilst going through this interim period of independence & expansion. Good stuff!

I wouldn't have put it past ch 10 to have walked away from the deal after seeing the fixture. the FFA notoriously gave SBS garbage games when they had it. 

Considering Nix weren't part of the 1st FTA deal on SBS this is good business for the ABC, They will be showing the games in the pacific region like PNG and Solomon Islands as well as Fiji.

Agree re the Nix. Horrible on every level. A team no one cares about playing out of a huge empty stadium. This is a really bad game outcome

Yes, this is likely to do more harm than good. Just awful.
