Ten Sports signs licensing and production pact with Goal TV for football content

Ten Sports and Goal TV have agreed to a new multi-year deal, which will allow Goal TV’s exclusive football content to be shown to viewers of Ten Sports and Zee Sports in the Indian Sub-continent. Goal TV, which is jointly owned by Hong Kong-based Yes Television Limited and Astro All Asia Networks of Malaysia, will shift the production of its football channels to Ten Sports’ headquarters in Dubai.

The new agreement implies that Taj TV, parent company of Ten Sports, will now produce and transmit nine channels from its headquarters in Dubai, ranging from the ‘Cricket Plus’ channel for DirecTV in North America, to the ‘Football Channel’ for Singaporean cable operator ‘Starhub’.

Commenting on the agreement, Thomas Kressner, Founder, Goal TV, said, “It is an excellent development for us to partner with the Indian sub-continent’s leading sports channel that has huge daily audience and solid production experience.”

Peter Hutton, Senior Vice-President, Ten Sports, said, “This volume of excellent football content is part of a growing bouquet of football rights on Ten Sports and Zee Sports. It supports our existing deals with the UEFA Champions League, UEFA Cup, UEFA Supercup, FIFA, AFC, the English championship and the All India Football Federation.”

Goal TV’s content includes exclusive live action from the French, Scottish and Dutch premier leagues and programming from top English clubs like Manchester United, Liverpool and Chelsea, and Spanish La Liga Club, Barcelona.
