Abu Dhabi TV secures MENA rights to Premier League

Abu Dhabi Media Company (ADMC), owner of Abu Dhabi TV, has secured the exclusive rights to English Premier League football coverage in the Middle East and North Africa for the next three years. ADMC has also secured internet and mobile rights to Premier League games.

The current season rights are held by pay-TV operator Showtime Arabia. It is expected that ADMC will sub-license the rights to pay-TV operators in the region. The terms of the deal mean that Premier League games can only be shown on pay-TV in the region.
