Sky television takes up netball rights

4:41 pm on 22 February 2011

The Silver Ferns netball Tests will now be shown live on pay television Sky, after Netball New Zealand signed a four-year deal with the broadcaster.

Television New Zealand previously had the rights to broadcast home Tests played by the Silver Ferns, but that deal expired at the end of 2010.

The new deal means Sky will screen international and domestic netball sports channels until 2015.

Sky, through Prime television, will also take on the free to air rights.
