The SAT said today (Apr 27) that all matches will be broadcast, showing on at least two channels – one operated by True Vision and also on Amarin TV.

True Vision is operated by Charoen Pokphand Group of the Chiawaranon family. The conglomerate has two channels. Amarin TV is controlled by another tycoon family, the Sirivadanabhakdis.

The SAT said seven firms have agreed to pool B1.4 billion to buy the rights to show the tournament on Thai stations.

Details of the settlement among Thai companies after long negotiations will be announced by SAT board chairman Prawit Wongsuwon on Monday (Apr 30).
