Manchester, England – In the wake of its 20th English League title, Manchester United announced the extension of its dedicated TV channel, MUTV. The channel will launch on SkyNet (Myanmar), TV2 (Norway) for the first time and will also extended its already-successful partnership with the Icelandic TV station, 365.

With some 23 million viewers tuning into a United game within the first seven months of last season, Myanmar’s SkyNet is confident MUTV will be popular in the football fanatical country. Established in 2010, the pay-TV platform broadcasts 84 channels including five HD channels and 20 in-house package channels. These consist of a mix of programme genres, with the station’s five sports channels establishing it as the leading football broadcaster.
