The Premier League has signed a broadcast partnership with StarHub in a six-year deal which sees the platform provide ‘open, agile and flexible access’ to its customers.
In a bid to make matches more ‘accessible and affordable’ to Singaporeans, the firm is to show matches in the English top-flight across its StarHub TV+, mobile and broadband offerings.
Paul Molnar, Premier League Chief Media Officer, commented: “The Premier League is delighted to announce our exciting partnership with StarHub and we are very happy that they view our competition as an important part of their live sports offering. StarHub will be an outstanding home for the Premier League over the next six seasons and we look forward to working together to showcase the League to new and existing fans throughout Singapore.
Furthermore, the platform has stated that it will show 380 matches in HD, with a ‘richer interactive user interface’. This includes features such as Party Watch, split screen viewing, performance statistics, to name a few whilst on-demand match replays will also be provided.
Johan Buse, Chief, Consumer Business Group, StarHub, added: “Football is beloved by Singaporean fans, and we are immeasurably thrilled to up the game for all Premier League fans in Singapore!
“The addition of the Premier League is a significant step in our bold DARE+ Infinity play journey, riding on the continued successful momentum of Disney+, GameHub+ with NVIDIA’s GeForce NOW and others, to bring the best entertainment options to customers seamlessly.”
“We are hard at work to stitch together unparalleled and more affordable Premier League access via StarHub TV+, our mobile and broadband platforms – fans will never have to miss a beat in the action. The beauty of StarHub TV+ is that fans can sign in to the app, regardless of which broadband or mobile service provider they are with, removing barriers to access their favourite matches on any device, any screen, anytime.”
Last week, Sky New Zealand also secured broadcast rights for the English Premier League for the next six years, beginning with the upcoming 2022/23 season.
The top-flight joined the channel’s football portfolio such as the A-League, top-tier European football clubs, the FIFA World Cup later this year and the FIFA Women’s World Cup.
