Sony Kix has acquired the telecast rights to La Liga, the premier division of the Spanish football league system. In what comes one of the most significant developments for the channel in the year, Sony Kix has bagged the exclusive rights to the league following its recent acquisition of the Emirates FA Cup and the SERIE A TIM into its line-up of prime football properties. The broadcaster will exclusively telecast the league across India, Pakistan, Sri Lanka, Bangladesh, Bhutan, Nepal and Maldives through the three-year deal.


These acquisitions strengthen the network’s current portfolio of live football programming which already boasts of a strong line-up of marquee properties including the UEFA EURO 2016, Qualifiers for UEFA EURO 2016, European Qualifiers for 2018 FIFA World Cup™, 2018 FIFA World Cup™ and COPA America 2015. The stellar array of prime content will enable fans to experience the most diverse offering including the highest club and international football every weekend.
