Convicts sign TeleVid deal
A report by Henri Souza
There is celebration amongst the convicts of Hades tonight, following Deltagam Corporation striking a historic deal with the prison authorities. Deltagam have won exclusive rights to broadcast the new sport of Batting, which has found favour amongst inmates with life-sentences. Based on the archaic sport of Boxing, Batting utilises the same rules, except each contender is given a Plasteen bat with which to assault his opponent. Twenty inmates have already died playing the sport, but this has not deterred enthusiasts; indeed, following this afternoon's revelations, the number of applicants has trebled, each looking for their 15 minutes of fame.
