iflix has inked an agreement with beIN Asia Pacific to bring European football live to its subscribers in Cambodia.

From August 10, iflix customers in Cambodia will be able to enjoy English Premier League and Spanish La Liga action via the newly launched 24-hour beIN SPORTS 1 and beIN SPORTS 2 channels on iflix. Catch-up will be available for matches as well. Additionally, same-day match highlights for all Premier League, La Liga and Ligue 1 games will be available across additional iflix territories in a beIN SPORTS-branded zone to users for free.

Mark Britt, iflix co-founder and group CEO, said, “Growing up in Australia, the freedom to enjoy sport was akin to a human right. We are incredibly excited to make the world’s most popular sport and the sport’s most premium leagues and competitions available to our users.

“Six months ago, when we set out to bring Malaysia football back to the Malaysian people, we committed to delivering the best live sports mobile streaming experience possible through significant investment and development of an all-new live streaming hub and infrastructure, which recently enabled us to seamlessly stream every World Cup match to our users across Africa. Our partnership with beIN is a testament to the ongoing commitment.”

Mike Kerr, beIN’s managing director for Asia and ANZ, said, “As we continue to expand our footprint, we are excited to team up with iflix in Cambodia. Football is one of the country’s most popular sports and our goal is to make beIN SPORTS’ content highly accessible to local fans and fuel their passion for the beautiful game. We look forward to working alongside iflix to deliver the best sports experience to our viewers in Cambodia.”
