Ten Sports has launched in Papua New Guinea and Tonga. In addition, the sports channel has also renewed its license agreement with Telkomvision in Indonesia as the network starts an expansion drive into emerging markets of the Pacific. Owned by the Dubai-based Taj Television Limited, Ten Sports is now available via Digicel’s Cable Pacific Limited, a leading cable platform for TV channels in Tonga and on Hitron, a leading cable platform in Papua New Guinea. The new service provides thousands of cricket fans based in Indonesia, Papua New Guinea and Tonga a chance to view international cricket matches from Pakistan, Sri Lanka, South Africa, West Indies and Zimbabwe to which Ten Sports holds exclusive multi year rights. Mark Denton, vice president international sales commented, “We are delighted to be able to offer Ten Sports to the cricket starved audiences across the Pacific region which have traditionally found great difficulty in accessing such services and we are confident that this is the first of many such deals in the region.”
