2014 World Cup rights secured in Cambodia
Cambodian Television Network (CTN) will broadcast next year's Fifa World Cup from Brazil after outbidding other local networks.
CTN, which is owned by the Royal Group, also broadcast the 2010 event in South Africa.
Local media reported Bernard Anthony, the general manager of the Cambodian Broadcast Service (CBS), which operates CTN, as saying there was a "significantly higher" rights fee involved this time round, although no precise details were revealed.
Coverage will be shared by CTN and MyTV and also include other Fifa-sanctioned tournaments.blog comments powered by Disqus
