RAI of Italy may not broadcast the first semi final of the Eurovision Song Contest due to schedule clashes.
According to Eurofestival News, RAI may not broadcast the first semi final on Rai 4 live. The final of the Italian Cup is scheduled to take place next Tuesday earlier than previously announced, this means that The Voice of Italy will also be moved to a later slot which will clash with the first semi final. RAI is expected by Eurofestival to opt not to broadcast the semi final live to avoid splitting its audience.
An official announcement is expected tomorrow.
