Cignal bared in its website the launch of a new sports channel in Premier Sports which will be “the ultimate choice of top-notch international sports action featuring favorites like UFC, NFL, WTA Tournaments, UEFA Champions, and Europa Leagues."
Cignal said Premier Sports will be available on Channel 272 on postpaid plans 520 and up, and prepaid load 500 and up starting September 20.
It is still unknown whether the Premier Sports channel will be made available in the channel lineup of other cable television providers.
