Singapore, 9 June, 2016 – Singtel TV today announced its packages for the upcoming season of the Premier League. Football fans will be able to catch the next season of the Premier League with no change to their prevailing subscription rates for their Value packs. This also applies to Gold Pack customers. The prevailing subscription rate also holds for the mio Stadium+ pack, which is also available to cross-carriage customers, when they sign up, re-contract or renew their contract by 12 August 2016.
As the new season of the Premier League kicks off on 13 August 2016, 10 exciting matches will be available each week on mio Stadium channels and the new ELEVEN PLUS sports channel, which will carry three of the 10 matches weekly, as part of Singtel’s sub-license of rights to ELEVEN Sports Network.
“We are pleased to keep subscription rates largely unchanged for our customers. Football is for everyone and we know how big a deal these matches are to fans in Singapore.” said Goh Seow Eng, Managing Director of Home, Consumer Singapore. He added, “The Premier League has always been the centrepiece of the differentiated content we have been steadily curating for our customers over the past years, as we boost our portfolio of quality sports channels and compelling entertainment and educational programming from major content providers like Discovery, Disney, and Fox. The League is what fans look forward to every year and something we have brought them since 2010.”
Singtel launched four new sports channels: Eleven, Eleven Sports, Eurosport and Eurosport News last July, strengthening its position as the home of football. This year, it scored a hat trick, broadcasting the ongoing Copa America 2016, the upcoming UEFA Euro 2016 and soon, the first of the new three–year season of the Premier League. Singtel has won exclusive broadcasting rights to the Premier League in Singapore since the start of the 2010/2011 season.
Singtel TV Value Packs – Jingxuan Value, Inspirasi Value, Kondattam Value, Desi Value and Action Value, feature over 150 channels each, offering the best in sporting action, Asian and English entertainment, ethnic programming and movie hits across popular channels such as mio Stadium, Discovery Channel, Fox Movies and more.
