talkSPORT partners with more international stations
talkSPORT has announced that SBS radio in Australia and Mix FM and Sinar FM in Malaysia are official broadcast partners for the station's Barclays Premier League and FA Cup commentaries. The agreements follow a new agreement with USA and Canada's Sirius XM Satellite Radio and takes the number of talkSPORT overseas broadcast partners to seven.
Under these new agreements, talkSPORT Live Barclays Premier League and FA Cup commentary will be available each weekend on SBS radio stations SBS1, SBS 2 and SBS 6 as well as online at SBS.com.au/radio on an exclusive basis within Australia in both English and Mandarin.
Since the beginning of the 2012/13 Barclays Premier League season, fans outside of Europe have been able to hear live commentary on every Barclays Premier League match in English, Spanish and Mandarin via talkSPORT Live at talkSPORT.com.
The deals will grant the stations access to talkSPORT's expert commentary, insight and links with the biggest names in Barclays Premier League football as well as its production expertise and experience of broadcasting live sporting events.
Scott Taunton, Chief Executive, talkSPORT said: "talkSPORT's coverage of the world's most popular football league is now available to listeners around the globe. But, as an Australian, I'm particularly pleased that this agreement means football fans at home will be able to listen to our commentary on SBS as well as online at talkSPORT.com. With their strong heritage of football coverage and nationwide availability across Australia, SBS is the perfect partner for talkSPORT.
"Malaysians are amongst the world's most passionate football fans, so I'm delighted to be working with Astro to bring our exclusive coverage of the Barclays Premier League to the airwaves. 2012/13 is shaping up to be another memorable season, and we look forward to ensuring Mix FM and Sinar FM listeners don't miss a second of the drama as Manchester City seek to defend their title."
