Sony Pictures Networks gets broadcast rights for Lanka Premier League
Sony Pictures Networks India (SPN) has signed an agreement with the official franchise and broadcast holder of LPL - the IPG Group, a statement by the wholly-owned subsidiary of Sony Corporation, Japan, said without disclosing the amount paid for broadcasting rights.
The agreement includes the television and digital transmission of the LPL, which is set to be played between December 5 and December 23, it added.
Following this, all LPL matches will be telecast live on SONY SIX & SONY TEN 2 channels and also live-streamed on its OTT platform SonyLIV.
''With the onboarding of Lanka Premier League, we want to provide our viewers with some high-energy T20 cricket throughout December. Sri Lankan Cricket has always produced many world-class players and the inclusion of top international cricketers like Chris Gayle, Andre Russell and Faf du Plessis among others is contributing to the growth and popularity of the Lanka Premier League in the subcontinent,'' he said.
