Hot Topic with Phil Lines - Black Out Rule & Amazon Prime's Premier League Debut.


Marcus Luer interviews Phil Lines, the man best known for taking the Premier League Media rights globally to new heights in the early 2000.  Phil started his illustrious career as a Journalist before spending time at ISL and Formula One and then later at the BBC and ITV in the UK.

Phil set up the world’s first sports news television agency which indirectly landed him the job at the Premier League. Working directly with Richard Scudamore,  the Chairman, Phil grew the rights fees for the League globally from £60 million to over £500 million per season. After the EPL, Phil spent time at major agencies from CAA to Lagadere before starting his own Consultancy firm, Nootka in 2014.
