Fijians will get to enjoy more telecast of sports tournaments soon, thanks to Mai TV, Digicel and Sky Television.
After the success of the Flying Fijians v All Blacks Tests, Mai TV yesterday announced that it has secured Olympic Games Tokyo 2020 coverage rights which starts on Friday until August 8.
“Despite the difficult economic times, Mai TV strived to secure the Olympic Games coverage free to air for the people of Fiji to ensure they all could share in the inspiration and celebration of the Olympic Games,” company head of finance and administration Tiarre Waqavakatoga said.
“We hope that young people who may be struggling during this pandemic can be inspired by what they see at the Olympic Games and learn from the stories of athletes who have worked hard and overcome many challenges to be among the best in the world.
“Securing the rights to the Olympic Games in partnership with Digicel and Sky Pacific is a milestone for Mai TV after years of rebuilding and despite the COVID-19 pandemic affecting growth and development.”
The live telecast is expected to begin with the opening ceremony on Friday and continues until the closing ceremony on August 8.
