Telco PCCW has acquired exclusive rights to the English Premier League in Hong Kong in a new three-season deal, from 2019-20 to 2021-22.
PCCW currently broadcast exclusive Premier League coverage after completing a deal with digital streaming service LeSports. LeSports acquired Premier League rights in a three-season deal, from 2016-17 to 2018-19, however LeSports Hong Kong – the regional sports-dedicated division of parent company LeEco – was liquidated in March 2018.
The new deal has been agreed directly with the Premier League and includes live exclusive coverage of all 380 matches per season.
Premier League rights will compliment PCCW’s current portfolio of premium football content, which includes Uefa Champions League and Spain’s LaLiga.
