Modern Times Group (MTG) has extended its exclusive broadcasting rights to England’s Premier League in Bulgaria until the end of the 2012-13 season.

MTG broadcasts Premier League games – currently 228 live over a season, along with highlights, profiles, interviews and analysis – on its Diema and Diema 2 channels.

However, the deal also includes extended online coverage and a dedicated Premier League website.

MTG has also recently secured an extension in broadcasting rights in Bulgaria to the UEFA Champions League, along with agreements with a number of Hollywood Studios.
