Malta's Hotels, Restaurants Encouraged To Broadcast Sports Legally

10th August 2018

The Malta Communications Authority encouraged local establishments to protect their brand and reputation by ensuring that they only publicly broadcast content from legal sources.

The Malta Communications Authority (MCA) welcomed the ground-breaking initiative between GO Plc and Melita in launching Total Sports Network (TSN), and encouraged local restaurants, hotels, bars and other catering establishments to protect their brand and reputation by ensuring that they only publicly broadcast content from legal sources.

TSN provides content just in time for the new sports season and includes the English Premier League, FA Cup, Italian Serie A, UEFA Champions League, UEFA Europa League, Spanish La Liga, German Bundesliga, and BOV Premier League to subscribers without the requirement of two separate subscriptions.

TSN will also provide other sports including Formula 1, Moto GP, Rugby and Wimbledon tennis.

“The MCA has previously facilitated discussions and encouraged the two operators to collaborate in television sports packages to provide such a joint service,” the Authority said in a statement.

“The MCA is currently establishing regulations that will aim to curb the use of illegal TV content streaming in such public places, thus also ensuring that the consumer receives an undisrupted and best quality service.”
