Malta’s GO extends Premier League rights

Maltese telco GO has retained its exclusive Premier League football coverage, securing rights for 380 matches per year for the seasons running from 2013/14 until 2015/16. 

The deal allows GO to make live, delayed and repeat transmissions of Barclays Premier League matches available in English and Maltese via the GO sports channels over both digital terrestrial and IPTV platforms.

GO has also taken the rights to air selected Premier League games through its forthcoming mobile service, which will let viewers tune in on the move via laptop, tablet or smartphone.

“GO’s TV venture, which took off in 2007, is a truly outstanding success story especially when considering that today we serve almost 70,000 homes with quality television entertainment. Securing premium content such as the Barclays Premier League is only a small part of the Company’s strategic capital investment which is simply aimed at giving more to our customers,” claimed GO’s CEO, Yiannos Michaelides,

The firm already holds exclusive rights sports including UEFA Champions League, Italian Serie A, and French Ligue 1 football, as well as Formula 1, Rugby and Tennis.
