ESPN Star Sports returns to StarHub, continues on mio TV


ESPN Star Sports' (ESS) television channels and multimedia packages will be offered on both StarHub and SingTel's mio TV.

The two Singapore pay-TV operators confirmed on Saturday that they had signed non-exclusive deals to carry ESS content, which includes Formula One, Spanish La Liga football, Grand Slam tennis and golf's Majors.

StarHub lost out on ESS content in 2009, when SingTel secured exclusive rights on a three-year deal.

Under the new contract, ESS channels and other content will return to StarHub from Dec 14. From January 15, StarHub's Sports Group package will be priced at $19.26 a month, up from the current $12.84 monthly subscription.
