For the first time broadcasting rights in Spain have been negotiated collectively. Previously, clubs were free to market their own rights, which presented a significant imbalance between the top two – Real Madrid and Barcelona – and the rest of La Liga and the Segunda División. Collective rights negotiations are standard across most of Europe, but had previously been blocked in Spain by those two clubs.
The deal covers the 2015/16 season only, but amount of €600 million is even not significant comparing it with the recent TV rights deal for the English Premier League.
