MAI TV secures Fiji FIFA Rights

Mai TV was awarded the sublicense in Fiji for sole TV rights to FIFA TV content between December 2013 and July 2014 by the Pacific rights holder, Click Pacific Ltd.
Port Moresby based Click Pacific is the new entrant in PNG’s Pay & FTA television market and secured the license for regional rights last month.
“We are extremely happy to have secured this agreement and are so looking forward to bringing all these wonderful tournaments to viewers here in Fiji.
This will be our second time to have been awarded the rights after our coverage of the spectacular 2010 South Africa World Cup and believe its confirmation of what a successful promotion that was for Fiji .
Our company began broadcasting in 2008 and we recently celebrated our 5th birthday, so this news is a wonderful belated present to give to our loyal viewers!” Mai TV’s General Manager Marc
Santos said.
Mai TV has been granted the rights to sublicense and broadcast several FIFA events in Fiji.
These include FIFA Beach Soccer World Cup in Tahiti this December, the Under -­-17 World Cup, the Under -­-17 Women’s World Cup, the Under-­-20 Women’s
World Cup and the largest event on earth, the FIFA World Cup next June.
“We are proud to have been given the opportunity to again participate in the greatest show on earth and believe that this time will be even bigger in Fiji then the 2010 events! Working this time with Click Pacific, we are confident that all the exciting FIFA content on offer to the rest of the world, will now be available to our viewers here in Fiji”, Santos added.
“There are now four Free to Air broadcasters operating in Suva, so there’s so much for viewers to choose from. For FIFA, with so many great events included, our role at Mai TV will be to present each of the individual tournaments as stand-­-alone events and give the viewers as much information and coverage of each event as possible. We are actually bringing not one, but five, FIFA World Cup tournaments to Fiji’s viewers and that is very exciting!” Santos said.
