Sun TV will have to pay Rs 85.05 crore per year to the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) for the Hyderabad IPL franchise.

"This Franchise fee represents a premium of over a 100 % above the amount paid by DCHL for the Hyderabad Franchise in 2008", the BCCI said in a media release.

The SUN TV Network bid was considerably higher than the second bid of PVP Ventures, which was 69.03 crores.
