That's the $360 million dollar question.
Nothing confirmed as yet, but if they do it will most likely be only available on Nilesat & Arabsat and will be paired to specific receivers.

Media company MP Silva bought the rights for MENA , Middle East and North Africa , and so far they haven't finalised a deal with any provider. It is rumoured that MP Silva are asking an amount of money that doesn't make economical sense for any potential provider . Their local market would not pay the price. In any case I am sure the PL would make sure that hotbird is not used by any potential provider. Abu Dhabi only used satellites that , in reality , could not be easily received in the uk. As far as I am aware it could be got using an IP box .

I wonder when EPL will become so expensive that no provider will be able to afford paying for it? The sooner that happens, the better in my opinion. Just a waste of bandwidth and cash!

This applies also for the Serie A.

I find it ridiculous that they have to do stuff like this in the first place. Very silly. People just want to watch whatever games they want on TV, so I can't see why they won't just televise every game in the UK.

Can't see that happening, mainly because it's an auction, if the direct bidding providers feel it's worth less, they'll bid less.

I don't care about the Premier League, but there is someone with the poor Humax receiver used for the EPL, if I remember correctly.

I have read that they are launching 3 new HD channels, beyond this the EPL already had heavy hinted that Al Jaz could have the rights if they got their house in order in relation to security of product, which in plain English is them saying "You get your shit locked up on a Middle East based beam" f#*king hate the EPL and that fat cow Karen Murphy as well.

Latest information
As I read it, All channels are in Language : Arabic except SD +3, +10 and HD +6.
HD+6 might also be a duplicate of SD +3, +10 so this package is not worth a toss.

The two tier package consists of the basic package +1 to +8.(standard definition) Only +5 to +8 show the EPL but the commentary is Arabic only. +3 is dedicated to English, but no footy. +3 possibly fronted by Andy Gray and Richard Keys ( only my opinion)201com.png
The premium package adds +9 and +10, and also 6 channels in HD. Only +10 and HD6 are broadcast with English commentary.
The packages go on sale from the 1st August, and more details can be found at jsc-cards.com/order/premier-league.html

We have been told that the channels will launch tomorrow. There has been some changes on Nilesat with new test channels added but nothing to suggest they might be AJ channels.
We have been given 12.265 H on Nilesat by our dealer but that is where HD 1 & 2 and Bein sports are already.

Cheers
