WHAT most Nigerians thought was not possible, has become a stark reality. Wholly Nigerian Pay TV Company, HiTV has the exclusive rights to broadcast all the matches (including Play offs) when the UEFA Champions League football, regarded as the â€˜â€˜biggest show on earthâ€™â€™, begins on August 18.
Chief Operating Officer, HiTV, Mr. Olumide Amure said the passion Nigerians have demonstrated over the years about the UEFA Champions League, spurred the Pay TV Company to go after the broadcast rights and ensured it got it â€œfor Nigerians, because we are a Nigerian company with the entertainment interest of Nigerians at heart.â€
He saw as natural the slow acceptance of the news that HiTV now has the UEFA Champions League rights, against the background of the times we are living in. Amure however has a feeling of elation about the feat HiTV achieved.
