ELEVEN SPORTS will reach even more fans in Taiwan with its premium sports action thanks to a carriage deal that will see its channels become available to subscribers of Chunghwa Telecom MOD.
From 1 July, Chunghwa Telecom MOD customers will have access to the LIVE and EXCLUSIVE premium sports events available on ELEVEN SPORTS including Premier League, Serie A TIM, the Emirates FA Cup, Cage Warriors, ATP World Tour 250 Tennis, the World Baseball Classic, Taiwan based CPBL baseball team ‘the Lamigo Monkeys’, the Chinese Basketball Association, and Badminton Asia Championships.
The launch means that the premium action available on ELEVEN SPORTS will be accessible to a further 1.3 million homes across Taiwan. This is in addition to the 4.7 million homes that ELEVEN SPORTS cable channels already reach in Taiwan via some of the country’s biggest platforms including CNS, TBC, TOP, Kbro and TFN.
“We are thrilled to grow our reach in Taiwan through this exciting agreement with Chunghwa Telecom MOD,” said Danny Menken, Group Managing Director, ELEVEN SPORTS. “Our goal is to reach every fan wherever they are and we now have close to 100% distribution across all major platforms in Taiwan. This underlines our fantastic achievements in such as short space of time and we are delighted to strengthen our footprint even further with this agreement.”
ELEVEN SPORTS’ linear channels run alongside the network’s over the top (OTT) streaming service which has achieved rapid growth and tremendous success since its launch in Taiwan in January 2016. ELEVEN delivers almost 2,500 hours of LIVE premium sports content annually across all platforms.
