Telenet secure Premier League for another three seasons

Belgian pay-television broadcaster Telenet has renewed its exclusive English Premier League rights in a new three-season deal, from 2019-20 to 2021-22.

Telenet currently hold Premier League rights in a three-season deal, from 2016-17 to 2018-19. The broadcaster operates in Flanders – the Flemish-language region of the country – and currently sublicenses rights to pay-television broadcaster BeTV, who operate in Wallonia – the French-language region.

Telenet will broadcast the rights on its Play Sports channels.

The Premier League is popular in Belgium due to the high number of domestic players in the league such as Eden Hazard, Kevin De Bruyne and Romelu Lukaku.
