Burma's SkyNet to Broadcast EPL
26 November 2012
Burmese TV station SkyNet has bought the rights for the English Premier League football games and will now show all the matches in the next two seasons, BBC News reported Friday. Following the easing of international sanctions against the Burmese government earlier this year, SkyNet was able to procure the rights. “SkyNet is delighted to be able to offer the world’s most followed football league to its viewers,” company chief Myint Myint Win said. The amount SkyNet agreed to pay for the broadcasting rights was not revealed.
