Serie A agrees free-to-air Indonesian deal
Indonesian publicly owned television station Indosiar has agreed a broadcast extension with Italy's Serie A.
The one-year extension of Indosiar's deal with the top-flight of Italian soccer sees the free-to-air broadcaster covering more league games per season than in previous years.
Financial terms of the new agreement were not released.
"We will continue airing Serie A this season," said Indosiar's head of public relations, Gufroni Syakaril. "We saw the league's popularity increase amongst Indonesian fans, and it's one of the reasons we continued the programme.
"We'll consider continuing the programme if it gets a good response from views. We will evaluate at the end of the season," Syakaril added.
