Singtel bids for broadcast rights to EPL
Singapore, 7 November 2006 -- Singapore Telecommunications Ltd (Singtel) today announced that it has submitted a bid for the broadcast rights to the English Premier League matches (from August 2007 to May 2010).
Our intention is to offer Pay TV services to deliver High Definition content over Singtel’s telecommunications network.
Singtel has been given a trial licence by Media Development Authority (MDA) to test the new service. We will be starting a technical trial using High Definition format with content from partners such as MediaCorp Studios and MegaMedia from November 2006.
We are also working with other content partners to provide entertainment services.
Singtel has applied to MDA for a commercial Pay TV licence, which will complement our existing commercial Video-On-Demand licence.
