LaLiga, the premier Spanish football league, has signed a broadcast deal with Viacom18’s flagship youth brand MTV India for the next 3 years. Enabled and supported by Rise Worldwide, the La Liga football tournament will now air exclusively on MTV in India and Sri Lanka, along with select national and regional network channels and live-streamed on Voot & Jio platforms. The deal, which covers the Indian subcontinent, comes into effect when the 2021-22 La Liga season gets underway on August 13.
This means that La Liga will no longer be available on Facebook’s streaming platform and the reason for Facebook not renewing the deal was because the networking site was no longer interested in investing in live sports rights
Listed below are the channel numbers of MTV India in each satellite service provider in Sri Lanka & the Indian Subcontinent:
|Dialog TV||Not Available Yet. More details are below.|
|Videocon (D2H)||Channel 457|
|Sun Direct||Channel 892|
|Dish TV||Channel 455|
|Airtel TV||Channel 480|
|Tata Sky||Channel 807|
Dialog TV currently doesn’t have this channel and we made a request to Dialog to add MTV India to their channels. They responded that they will share the suggestion with the respective team.
The Voot Select app and the Jio app will also live stream these games but it’s not available for users in Sri Lanka at the moment.
