MUMBAI: The Premier League has said that Telenet has been awarded exclusive audio visual broadcast rights for all 380 Barclays Premier League matches per season for seasons 2013-16 in Belgium.

"We are extremely pleased Telenet has chosen to invest in our broadcast rights for Seasons 2013/14-2015/16," said Premier League Chief Executive Richard Scudamore.

"They are a long-term partner of the Premier League and we know they will continue to broadcast the competition to our fans in Belgium in an exciting and innovative manner."

Telenet senior VP public affairs & media management Ann Caluwaerts said, "Our customers tell us that they enjoy the English Premier League very much particularly because they can now follow the Belgian players more closely. That is one of the reasons why Telenet made a great effort to retain the broadcasting rights to the Premier League.
