SUVA, (FBC SPORTS) - The Fiji Broadcasting Corporation has added another feather to its cap, with the announcement of Fiji’s first ever free 24-hour sports channel.

FBC Chief Executive, Riyaz Sayed-Khaiyum says the plan to bring a dedicated channel on their platform has been long overdue.

“There is huge demand for it. We took a huge risk when we put the English Premier League on free to air television a few year ago. Some people told us we were stupid because there was money to be made if only on pay TV through content such as EPL but we decided we going to stick our necks out and give something to the people of Fiji that had never been made available to them before.”

FBC Sports gets activated from 6pm on Friday and will replace the FBC Plus channel and will be only available via the Walesi platform.

The FBC Plus channel will be added back later.
