Orange and Setanta team up
Orange has agreed a deal with Setanta to offer live coverage of all the channel’s Barclays Premier League games to the network’s users – starting with Manchester United Vs Everton this Sunday.
The service is available to Orange mobile TV customers with a 3G handset; the subscription fee will cost £5. It positions Orange as the only UK operator to offer all of Setanta’s live games.
Users will have access to Setanta Sports 1, Setanta Sports 2 and Setanta Golf on Orange’s mobile portal, Orange World.
Upcoming featured games over the festive period, the busiest in the football calendar, includes Manchester United Vs Newcastle and Chelsea Vs Tottenham.
Steve Wallage, head of sports partnerships & services, said: ‘This partnership is all about bringing customers closer to the game they love.
'The addition of the Setanta Sports package to our existing football portfolio was essential to ensure our customers don't miss any of this season's action - we're now the true home for football on your mobile.’
