Could the value of live sports be overrated?

SNL Kagan ups retrans fee forecast to $10.3B by 2021
Jul 07 2015 7:30 AM

The retransmission fees that pay-TV operators pay broadcasters is expected to increase to $10.3 billion by 2021, a 63% increase from fees expected to be paid in 2015.

The estimate, provided by SNL Kagan today, shows that TV station owners continue to wield power in negotiations with operators even as more viewers turn to over-the-top and subscription video-on-demand services.

Kagan also upped its projection for 2020, adding $500 million to its earlier $9.3 billion forecast.
