No free EPL in Indonesia

English Premier League is very popular in Asian countries. There are many fans of Premier League in Indonesia. EPL is one of the highest rating TV program in Indonesia. But this season, Indonesian fans of the English Premier League will no longer be able to watch games on Free-to-Air television. Last season of 2006/2007 Indonesian people always watch most of the EPL matches on Trans7 for free. Since Astro take the rights to air all the EPL matches, Indonesia no longer be able to watch games on Free-to-Air television. EPL fans in Indonesia will be disappointed for that, Sure.

Trans7, previously TV7, had held the rights to broadcast the EPL since 2003. But Now, the games will only be able to be viewed on channels carried by Pay-TV newcomer Astro from Malaysia. This season Trans7 didn't take the EPL rights as the price was simply too costly for them. It's the first time that Indonesian people will have to subscribe to commercial TV satelite to watch English premiership league. Astro have a business deal with EPL's rights holder and it have no authority to resell the rights to local TV stations in Indonesia. EPL It's not free anymore. The fee of IDR 200.000 / month to watch EPL in Astro. Indonesian poor people will not afford this price. For some people in Indonesia will say, Good Bye EPL .....
