11 October 2012, Singapore – Good news for Barclays Premier League (BPL) soccer fans in Singapore. SingTel mio TV have just secured broadcast rights to another three new seasons for a total of 380 BPL matches from August 2013. The matches will also continue to be available online on miostadium.com and on mobile via SingTel’s BPL application.
Mr Allen Lew, Country Chief Officer Singapore and CEO Group Digital L!fe, SingTel said, “We are delighted to bring all the BPL matches LIVE to Singapore for another three seasons. Along with our recent acquisition of the rights to the UEFA Champions League, UEFA Europa League, FA Cup, Serie A, Ligue 1 and other prominent football tournaments, fans can be assured of SingTel’s strong commitment to deliver the most comprehensive football experience on mio TV, the home of football.”
These rights for BPL were acquired on a non-exclusive basis, so Starhub TV subscribers may still have a chance to view BPL on their set top box. Let’s keep our fingers crossed.
