Cable & Wireless has launched Flow Sports 2, a second premium sports channel which is to be the Caribbean home of the Indian Premier League (IPL) and the Commonwealth Games.

Flow Sports 2 will be available to TV customers of Flow and BTC, delivering exclusive access in the region to the Commonwealth Games, starting on 4 April, and the IPL, starting on 7 April.

The network will also broadcast the US Major League Soccer, IAAF events, New Zealand Cricket and FA Cup Football.

Following the release of the second channel, the original Flow Sports will be rebranded to Flow Sports 1. It will continue to give viewers access to sporting events such as the Flow CARIFTA Games, CONCACAF football, rugby, tennis, racing and cycling.

The Premier League-focused network, Flow Sports Premier, will be rebranded Flow Sports Premier League, as Cable & Wireless continues to have the exclusive rights to the British football league.

“We know how important sport is to the Caribbean,” said Shuja Khan, chief commercial officer at C&W. “Viewers are demanding premium sports and want to see both the best and emerging sports stars from the region competing on the global stage.”
