Digital streaming service LeSports has sold on its Fifa World Cup 2018 rights in Hong Kong at a significant discount as it plans to cease operations in the territory.
Pay-television platform i-Cable paid a significant increase to retain rights amid stiff competition for the Uefa Champions League in Hong Kong.
The acquisition last week by Hong Kong broadcaster TVB of the rights to the 2016 Olympic Games underlines the determination of the broadcaster to protect its dominant position in free-to-air television while making inroads into the pay-television market.
