Australia Plus to broadcast matches in Asia/Pacific

February 26, 2015 2:39 PM

The AFL is pleased to announce that Australia Plus has assumed the rights to broadcast matches in the Asia/Pacific region from Australia Network.

Under the new arrangement that covers key markets across the Asia/Pacific region, Australia Plus will broadcast six matches per week during the Toyota AFL Premiership season, along with all matches in the Toyota AFL Finals Series. It will also broadcast a weekly highlights program across 28 weeks.

Patrick Emmett, Head of Television ABC International, said the reach of Australia Plus would be a great result for AFL fans outside of Australia.

"2015 is set to be the biggest year ever for AFL coverage in Asia and the Pacific with an additional 40 million people in the region having access to our weekly coverage on Australia Plus Television.

“This year we welcome new AFL fans across India, South Korea and Japan and look forward to bringing all the colour and excitement of the final series to Chinese audiences in the Shanghai region,” Emmett said.

Australia Plus will also broadcast live each of the 21 matches in the NAB Challenge that are being covered by Fox Footy.

Separately, one match will be shown on delay on Eurosport Asia/Pacific each week with a weekly highlights program also to be shown on Eurosport Asia/Pacific.

Key markets Australia Plus broadcast into include: Bangladesh; Cook Islands; Fiji; Guam; Hong Kong; India; Indonesia; Japan; Macau; Malaysia; Marshall Islands; Micronesia; Nauru; New Caledonia; Niue; Northern Marianas; Palau; Philippines; Papua New Guinea; Samoa; Singapore; Solomon Islands; South Korea; Sri Lanka; Thailand; Tonga; Vanuatu.

The AFL will continue to seek outcomes for those regions where AFL supporters cannot access the Australia Plus service and in the meantime encourages supporters in those markets to access all live matches via watchafl.afl.com.au.
