We are excited that we can now deliver the best football action in the world to our Compact subscribers while ensuring that this development doesn’t negatively impact them financially,” he said.
Ugbe said Compact subscribers would be able to follow football from the EPL, La Liga and Euro 2016, which will show from SS11 from June with additional six matches on SS12. The firm also announced a massive price slash in the prices of its premium decoders, the Zapper and Explora.
