Japanese satellite broadcaster Sky PerfecTV has secured domestic television rights to the Swiss Super League for the forthcoming season.
The deal was announced just as the J-League's most popular player, striker Yoichiro Kakitani, signed for Basel from Cerezo Osaka for a reported fee of €2 million.
As of the end of June 2014, Sky PerfecTV and its two premium subscription services served a total of 3,468,250 subscribers. Of these, 21,828 users were newly registered, and the monthly churn rate registered at 0.8%, operator Sky Perfect JSAT Corporation announced earlier this month.
