This week, we highlight all the sports news related to FIFA, FOX, Disney, NHL, WBD and ITV. We also delve into the NFL's ongoing legal battle over its Sunday Ticket trial, emphasizing the significance of the league's decision to appeal the ruling, which could potentially extend the case until 2026. We break down the latest rumors around Paramount Global and discuss their new Paramount+ pricing, which kicks in on August 20th. 

We also detail the latest pay TV and streaming viewership numbers from Game 7 of the Stanley Cup Finals (7.7 million viewers, peaking at 10.3 million), England’s match with Slovenia on ITV and ITVX (9.2 million viewers), and CNN's presidential debate (8.7 million on pay TV, 2.3 million concurrent streaming).

Finally, we discuss Twelve Labs raising $50 million in series A funding in June after raising $17 million through seed rounds. I also highlight what impressed me from my day-long visit with Tata Consultancy Services Media & Entertainment Business Unit and the scale of the projects they are involved in, especially around data, advertising and AI.
