Fox Sports dropped from 260 pubs

Bruce Mathieson, who owns more than 260 pubs according to the Herald Sun, has cancelled a deal with Foxtel worth more than $5 million a year. He said showing AFL footy games on Foxtel cost each pub more than $20,000 a year, and it had become a question of value. Free-to-air AFL games will continue to be screened at the pubs.
