Nigerian TV not showing African Cup final


LAGOS, Nigeria (AP) -- For the first time in more than a decade, Nigeria's national team has made it to the biggest game in African football, but you might not have been able to tell if you tuned into a local television station in Africa's most populous nation.

Television channels in Nigeria, home to more than 160 million people, never secured the broadcast rights to this year's African Cup of Nations.

The Confederation of African Football says it reached a deal for Nigerian broadcasters to show Sunday's final against Burkina Faso. However, Nigeria's broadcasting body says no deal has been made.

And fans in Nigeria, who have had to troop to viewing centers or bars to see the Super Eagles for the whole tournament, are angry.
