Eleven launches in Taiwan, strikes ITTF rights deal

International pay-television broadcaster Eleven Sports Network has furthered its reach in Asia by launching a new OTT platform in Taiwan.

Building on the launch of its OTT service in Singapore on January 8, Eleven Sports Network’s international content will now be offered to sports fans in Taiwan, with the broadcaster striking a new deal to commence the service.

Eleven Sports Network has agreed a multi-year deal to show the International Table Tennis Federation’s World Tour events in Taiwan, providing live coverage of one of the country’s most popular sports.

Subscribers in Taiwan will be able to access the network’s two channels, Eleven and Eleven Sports, from NT$199 (€5.50/$6) per month.

Danny Menken, group managing director of Eleven Sports Network, said: “OTT offers us flexible distribution options and we hope to soon showcase both the linear streaming of our robust channels, as well as offering events on an individual pay-per-view basis.”
