Music streaming service Deezer has announced the expansion of its football partnership with talkSPORT to include the Asia Pacific region. TalkSPORT is the global audio partner of the English Premier League.
The expansion of the Deezer and talkSPORT partnership means that football fans in Australia and Malaysia will now have immediate access to all Premier League games.
Deezer subscribers will have access to all EPL games including pre-match, half-time and post-match programming with live commentaries in English for users in Australia. For users in Malaysia, the live commentary will be available in English and Bahasa Malay.
Deezer subscribers will also have access to football-related playlists.
Deezer Asia CEO Henrik Karlberg said: “With 42% of internet users watching EPL in APAC alone, we are thrilled to bring fans in Australia and Malaysia even closer to the live experience through our extended partnership with talkSPORT. Following deals with premier football clubs, Manchester United and FC Barcelona, expanding our relationship with talkSPORT in these two new territories reinforces our commitment to football and to providing consumers with the best entertainment audio experience.”
talkSPORT international director Jimmy Buckland said: “The 17/18 EPL season is set to be one of the most competitive in recent memory, and our unique audio coverage will enable Deezer users to experience all the key moments of drama as they unfold.”
