Indonesian state broadcaster TVRI has agreed a sublicensing deal with pay-television operator Mola TV for free-to-air rights to football’s English Premier League.

Terms of the deal were not disclosed, but it will commence with the forthcoming 2019-20 season.

TVRI said it will simulcast two matches per week through its main TVRI channel and TVRI Sport HD. The opening match shown by the broadcaster will be Liverpool’s clash with Norwich City on August 9.
