AFL free for all

According to an article in The Age all eight AFL games are likely to be shown on free-to-air television after talks reportedly broke down between the rights holders and Foxtel who could have shown up to four matches per week.

This will be good for AFL fans because they will be able to watch all the AFL matches without the need for pay TV but at the same time I think that will mean just too much footy on those two channels, 7 and Ten.

I actually don't know whether over-saturation of a good thing is any good but I will waiting to see how the two channels will manage the eight match load without adversely affecting their other programs.

The winners in this case could AFL fans and ironically Channel 9 who lost the rights early this year. This is because all those not much interested in the AFL will just turn to Channel 9 to watch alternative programs.
