Team Malaysia to get better TV coverage nationwide

All free-to-air TV stations that do not have broadcasting rights for major sporting events of mass appeal, will be able to share the contents obtained by the rights holder from May 1.

The move was to enable all sporting events that involved the interest of the country to receive wide coverage, so that all Malaysians can watch such action, instead of it being monopolized by the rights holder.

Among the sporting events falling under the sharing programme are the Olympics, Commonwealth Games, Asian Games, Sea Games, Sukma, Thomas and Uber Cups, All England, BWF Super Series, AFC Asian Cup, Asean Football Federation Cup, Fifa World Cup (semifinals and final) and English Premier League.

The sporting events listed were chosen since they can function as a tool to enhance integration and unity in the spirit of 1Malaysia.
