KUALA LUMPUR, April 19 (Bernama) — Asian Broadcasting Network (M) Sdn Bhd (ABN) has applauded Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak and Information Communications and Culture Minister Datuk Seri Dr Rais Yatim for the initiative to encourage sharing of sports events contents between all free-to-air (FTA) broadcasters and pay-TV broadcasters.

“ABN is very supportive of this move that is in line with the vision of our prime minister to create a knowledge based community whilst reducing the digital divide between the rural and urban communities,” said Sreedhar Subramaniam, president of the country’s first digital cable TV (CATV) network service provider.

He said ABN was confident that such a sharing system would spur a stronger interest in sports among Malaysians, inspiring young talented Malaysians to excel as professional athletes at the national or even global level.
