MBC secures World Cup broadcasting rights: Free TV games for Malawians

Malawi Broadcasting Corporation (MBC) has secured Brazil World Cup broadcasting rights which will give a chance for the station to cover all the games live on the television.

MBC Director General Benson Tembo said the securing of the rights from Fifa would make the national broadcaster the official broadcaster in the country and no any other television station or radio station cover it.

“We acquired exclusive rights to broadcast the all the 64 World Cup matches and the final match for the Brazil World Cup which means no any television or radio would be able to broadcast the match in Malawi or get any feed for the matches,” Tembo said.

“These are the exclusive rights we have bought and no station be allowed to get any feed and broadcast the matches in Malawi.”

Tembo assured the soccer fans that the MBC would strive to cover all games without disturbances.

“We want the fans to enjoy the games from the comfort of their home and we hope we will not have interruptions. In the case of interruption we will record and broadcast later,” he said.

But Tembo, who also said MBC Radio 2 would cover the match from the television feed, did not divulge finer details of the deal in terms of financial implications.

He said the MBC had bought the rights from Fifa to cover the matches.

Tembo said the deal would give a chance to Malawians to enjoy the World’s greatest football festival in probably the World’s greatest footballing nation.

The World Cup will start in Brazil from June 12 to July 13 with Africa’s Ivory Coast, Ghana, Nigeria, Algeria and Cameroon.
