Fox Sports renews Masters rights in 18 countries across Asia

MUMBAI: Fox Sports has added to its list of Golf majors by renewing the exclusive cable, satellite, terrestrial and multi-media broadcast rights of The Masters in 18 countries across Asia to 2016

Fox Sports recently kicked off the golf majors season with a seven-day coverage of the 2014 Masters Tournament (popularly known as the Augusta Masters) which started on 8 April. Fox Sports has upped the ante for this year’s tournament with an even bigger coverage of the first golf major of the year.

The network has scored a coup with 2005 US Open winner, Michael Campbell, as well as Jay Sajamark, a veteran PGA Tour commentator and presenter, and Tim Low, a Singaporean golf professional, joining the Fox Sports presentation team for The Masters Tournament, to give golf fans in Asia more than 28 hours of live and special programming. In addition, commentary will be available in English, Cantonese, Mandarin, and for the first time, in Thai.

Fox International Channels Asia senior VP, content and communication for sports Rohit D’Silva said, “Our renewal of The Masters Tournament is an affirmation of Fox Sports as the premier destination for sports fans in Asia. We’re focussed on delivering the best possible viewing experience and so are pleased to be offering top tier programming, enhanced overall coverage and in multiple languages for the 2014 Masters, and look forward to continually improve on future editions.”
