$1.24B for Dutch soccer? A deal between News Corp (NWS, NWSA) and Erdivisie Media & Marketing will give the media giant the right to broadcast games from the Dutch premier soccer league for a 12-year stretch. The company's international broadcasting division is likely to sell rights to the broadcasts, instead of holding them exclusively for itself.
