Malaysian pay TV operator Astro has been awarded exclusive media rights for the 2012-15 UEFA Champions League and UEFA Europa League for Malaysia and Brunei.
Football fans in these countries will be able to see live at least six UEFA Champions League and at least four UEFA Europa League matches per match week, as well as highlights and delayed match coverage for both competitions each week. Astro will broadcast the matches on its pay TV channel Astro SuperSport.
In Myanmar, S Media has been granted all rights to the league. It will broadcast live at least six matches per match week on its pay TV channels, as well as highlights and delayed coverage of both the UEFA Champions League and the UEFA Europa League.
All rights have been granted on a platform-neutral basis, so all broadcast partners will exploit the rights via television, internet and mobile.
UEFA said: "The media rights sales process is successfully continuing in Asia, reflecting the growing interest for UEFA's club football competitions in the region. UEFA is happy to announce these deals as they will enable football fans throughout the respective territories to enjoy increased levels of match choice and coverage of both the UEFA Champions League and UEFA Europa League."
