TV and film rights marketplace allrites has completed the sale of a live sports package including Premier League and BCCI home series rights.

Founder and CEO of allrites, Riaz Mehta, said: “We are delighted to have struck this deal with leading sports broadcaster T-Sports through our partnership with Star internationally. As part of a wider strategy around sports content, we are now in separate discussions for additional English Premier League, live cricket and other sports content as we continue to expand into other markets across the world and see a growing demand from our ever-expanding customer base.”
