StarTimes continues to make football content a priority since it started to offer pay-TV services on the continent in 2008. During the last couple of months, StarTimes started to broadcast ESPN and ESPN 2. Apart from NBA, the US channels broadcast several football championships, Dutch Eredivisie, English EFL, Turkish Süper Lig, Scottish SPFL or the US MLS, that both Messi and Ronaldo have been recently rumored to join.
At the end of 2019, StarTimes acquired The Emirates FA Cup broadcasting rights until 2021. StarTimes Sport Director Shi Maochu said that “this is a significant step for StarTimes. The Emirates FA Cup and the FA Community Shield are among the most competitive national football events”.
“StarTimes has always been looking to bring the best value to its subscribers. This has been our priority and we will keep adding high quality content to enrich subscribers’ experience,” explained Shi Maochu. This year, all football fans are looking forward one event, the UEFA Euro 2020. StarTimes will broadcast all matches live and HD across the continent through its TV network as well as on its streaming mobile app, StarTimes ON.
