In addition to other football and non-football properties, Eleven also airs three live and three time-delayed EPL games per week in Singapore, after penning a multi-year agreement with Singtel, the local rights-holder, in June.
Singtel, which retains exclusive rights for games played by specific EPL clubs over a season, also carries Eleven’s channels on its IPTV platform, Singtel TV.
Singtel’s dedicated EPL offering, Mio Stadium, a starter pack which includes one channel from Eleven, costs S$64.90 (US$46.4) per month.
Its add-on World Sports tier, which includes Eleven's other two channels, costs S$14.90 (US$10.7) per month.
