AIS PLAY has won broadcast rights to the Greatest Sports Show on Earth, the Tokyo 2020 Olympics.
It will be the Official Broadcaster offering live coverage of every televised contest at every event and every venue, for maximum viewing satisfaction. There is a full programme of highlights and replays on AIS PLAY. The video platform will be the only place for Thais to cheer on athletes in the Thai national team, and enjoy a festival of world-class sport.
Pratthana Leelapanang, Chief Consumer Business Officer, AIS commented, “We are a Digital Life Service Provider focused on realising the potential of digital networks to bring convenience and happiness to the people of Thailand. Especially during a crisis, everyone seeks encouragement and inspiration to deal with challenges. Following on from our collaboration with Disney to provide entertainment, AIS PLAY has now acquired the rights to be Official Broadcaster for the Tokyo 2020 Olympics in Thailand.”
The Tokyo 2020 Olympics are being held under the restrictions of the COVID-19 pandemic with no trackside spectators. These broadcasts are highly significant as the country’s representative in bringing this content to Thai viewers in every detail. Thais can watch the action from July 21 onwards, and the Opening Ceremony on July 23. Both live feeds and replays are available to cheer on Thai athletes in every event for free, and from any network, on every channel of AIS PLAY, on both mobile and websites. There is exclusive content for AIS subscribers through the mobile app, the AIS PLAYBOX set-top box, SAMSUNG Smart TV, Apple TV and the website aisplay.ais.co.th. There are also collaborations with major media partners enabling Thai viewers to access broadcasts through websites, such as Matichon, Khao Sod, Manager, Siam Sport and PPTV HD.
Pratthana concluded, “AIS will be the medium conveying every Thai person’s hopes for their Thai Olympic heroes, that they can both achieve victory and be safe from the pandemic. For our part, we will be aiming to capture every memorable image from these historic Games for our Thai viewers as best we can.”
