Pay-TV operator K+ has won the broadcast rights for the English Premier League until 2019 in Vietnam, after a consortium of networks failed to clinch the deal.

Regional rights holder MP & Silva has agreed undisclosed terms for England’s top flight football competition with satellite platform K+, a joint venture between national broadcaster VTV and France’s Canal+, rather than opting for the Vietnam Pay Television Association and its reported ceiling of US$46 million.

MP & Silva rejected the latter’s offer, saying such a deal with multiple group members would violate broadcast rights regulations, according to Thanhnien News.

K+, which has broadcast the English Premier League in Vietnam since 2010, paid $40 million for the period from 2013-2015.

Subscribers to the satellite network will now be able to watch all English Premier League matches for the coming three seasons. In addition, with the online television application myK+, subscribers can watch on smart phones, tablets or other Internet-connected devices.

Live Premier League coverage will also be available to subscribers of VTVCab, MyTV, Viettel, FPT and Hanoicab, which all carry K+ sports channels.
