Premier League Football on Spanish TV from 2010
Reports are that English Premier League football will be exclusively on Gol TV and Digital + for the three seasons commencing from the 2010/2011 season.
This means that it wil no longer available on TDT / La 2 / Teledeporte, and only on subscription TV.
GOLTV is available with a TDT Premium receiver and viewing card and a 14.99€ per month subscription.
Digital+ is the Spanish satellite provder, available on Astra 1 (19 east) and Histasat (30 west) satellites, providing a number of packages (similar to the UK Sky offering).
As I mentioned a few months ago, I am sure this will be used to help make the UK Expat community to pay for D+ and not Sky, especially as D+ has many of the same US / UK programmes and movies as Sky and offers many of them in English also, and help boost the value of D+ to potential buyers.
Spanish media groups Mediapro and Prisa have agreed a deal to broadcast English Premier League matches for the next three seasons, Mediapro said in a statement on Thursday.
Mediapro and Prisa are to broadcast games on television, internet and mobile phones via their Gol Television and Canal Plus subsidiaries in seasons 2010/11, 2011/12 and 2012/13.
No financial details were given.
