The Week: Media News - TV sports set for reshuffle

A "radical" reshuffle of the list of sports that are reserved for coverage on free-to-air television channels is expected to take place later this month, with the Ashes and Wimbledon among the competitions expected to be added to the list.

The recommendations follow a ten-month review conducted by a panel of sports stars and broadcasters. Events that already feature on the free-to-air list include the Grand National, the Olympics and the FA Cup final.
