Juventus-Torino without commentary

RAI Sport will show tonight’s Juventus-Torino game without commentary, in protest over subscription-based television.

The Italian state broadcaster didn’t win the rights to show the World Cup, and doesn’t have any Serie A matches as the rights are split between Sky and Mediaset.

In the UK events such as the World Cup and the Wimbledon tennis championships have to be broadcast for free, and there is a similar law in Italy.
