Credit Crunch Bites into TV fans coverage

I was intending to do a piece on the new kids on the blockin terms of live sports broadcasting, not just in Kenya, but in Africa. Asi ii is the company in question, GTV, has gone bust.

According to this pieceon the BBC, they have had to call in the liquidators after they were unable to recoup the 200 million USD they invested in their endevours.

For us in East Afrcica as well as losing what was a significantly cheaper portal to English Premier League football, there is also the small issue of who will fill in for the now defunct sposorship deals GTV signed with FUFA (Uganda’s Football administrator)and the recently concluded CECAFA tournament.
