StarHub announces coverage of tennis and badminton tournaments

The firm will air the tournaments by leveraging its association with the two media companies that hold the coverage rights to the Grand Slams and BWF games.

The Singaporean multinational conglomerate, StarHub has announced to broadcast all four Grand Slams, BWF Tour and BWF India Open 2022 for the native sports fans through its partnership with the broadcasting services, which are beIN Sports and SPOTV. By this move, StarHub became the first provider in Singapore to stream all four Grand Slam tournaments.

Through this decision, the leading broadcaster in Singapore has generated a streaming subscription, Sports+. Via this subscription, the firm will air the tournaments by leveraging its association with the two media companies that hold the coverage rights to the Grand Slams. Tennis enthusiasts, after gaining this subscription in Singapore, can witness the coverage of the Australian Open, held between January 17-30 and Roland Garros (French Open) starting from May 16 on the beIN Sports channel namely beIN SPORTS 2. Similarly, tennis fans can watch the live-action of Wimbledon from June 27 to July 10 and US Open from August 29 to September 11 on SPOTV.

The provider has also promised to showcase the BWF’s tournaments such as the India Open 2022 and the HSBC World Tour Super 500 live on its channel. 

Badminton devotees can stream the quarter-final, semi-final and final matches of the India Open through the Sports+ subscription on SPOTV or via the StarHub TV+ app.

On this grand announcement, Andrew Tan, the Head of Content of StarHub, gave his insights and said, “Sporting events are near and dear to our customers’ hearts. We are delighted to have deepened our partnership with beIN so that sports fans can continue savouring the full suite of Grand Slams on StarHub, starting with the Australian Open next week. Since last year, we have been hard at work with our content partners, to ameliorate the regional shuttering of the Fox Sports channels. We are thrilled that our efforts have borne fruit for our customers; with UFC and F1 re-joining our line-up last year, as well as the Australian and French Opens today. A big thank-you to our customers for being so patient with us as we bring their favourite sports properties back home.”

beIN Sports have recently bagged the rights of the Australian Open and Roland Garros.
