Britain-based online streaming provider Eleven Sports Network will be taking the English Premier League off its menu from June 17.
The Eleven Plus channel, which has been carrying EPL content, will also removed from its suite of channels.
According to documents seen by ST, Eleven’s popular $19.90-a-month package will be reduced to $9.90. The new package will be renamed Eleven Sports Value Plan.
The new package will feature either MUTV or Chelsea TV in the place of the EPL. The new package will retain other existing sports content including Italian Serie A, Emirates FA Cup, NBA basketball and European, South American Fifa World Cup qualifiers.
Subscribers will be given the option to convert to the new plan, or cancel their subscription with a pro-rated refund.
Eleven’s $19.90-a-month package, which was no longer on sale on its website, allows users to watch three live EPL games and three delayed telecasts to be shown per week on its website at elevensports.sg or via the Eleven Sports app. Users however have to commit to a year-long contract. Customers can also pay $24.90 a month without contract.
Eleven’s decision to drop EPL from its offering means that the prized EPL content will now only be available on one pricing option.
Singtel has the exclusive EPL broadcast rights in Singapore for three seasons from last year (2016), offering all the matches live for $59.90 a month. StarHub cross carries the exact offer on its pay-TV platform as Singapore’s authorities require exclusive content to be shared.
Last year, Singtel sub-licensed parts of its exclusive rights to screen EPL matches here to Eleven, in what was reported as a multi-year deal. For the first time in years, EPL matches could be sold in smaller a-la-carte packages at a much lower price.
Eleven’s content is also resold by Internet service providers (ISPs) StarHub, M1 and ViewQwest, and national broadcaster MediaCorp’s Toggle.
M1 and ViewQwest have stopped selling Eleven’s selection of EPL matches. Meanwhile, StarHub and Toggle were still offering Eleven’s EPL plan on Friday (May 26).
