3HK and HGC plan imminent launch of big value LeSports Super Sports Pack bundles

An entirely new English Premier League spectator experience awaits football fans via 4G LTE, WiFi and home broadband services
 

Hong Kong, 1 August 2016 - 3 Hong Kong and Hutchison Global Communications Limited (HGC), the mobile and fixed-line divisions of Hutchison Telecommunications Hong Kong Holdings Limited (HTHKH; stock code: 215), today announced imminent launch of big value LeSports Super Sports Pack bundles. These will feature a rich OTT (Over-the-Top) entertainment experience in the form of favourite sporting action such as English Premier League football. Coverage will be delivered by 3 Hong Kong and 3Home Broadband via 4G LTE and WiFi networks, as well as home broadband services.

Advanced network infrastructure forms basis of outstanding OTT entertainment experience

Popularity of OTT entertainment is growing on a global scale. For example, a survey4 shows OTT TV and video revenues in Asia Pacific will more than double over the next five years, suggesting huge development potential for OTT entertainment.

Jennifer Tan, Chief Operating Officer of Hutchison Telecommunications Hong Kong Holdings Limited, said: “The Group’s leading-edge and robust fibre-optic network infrastructure is the foundation of our 4G LTE, WiFi and home broadband networks – providing stable and reliable transmission of content for OTT content providers and customers alike.”

She added: “In 2014, we partnered with LeEco to launch Hong Kong’s first bundling of 4K home broadband and entertainment content, which opened up a new era of home OTT entertainment. Today’s announcement of collaboration with LeSports is about transmission of its high-quality content via four platforms to serve smartphones, TVs, laptops and tablets. The move also allows us to provide mobile and fixed-line customers with super value-for-money monthly tariff plans that will keep them up to speed with world sporting events anytime, anywhere. Our collaboration with LeEco created a win-win-win situation for us, our partner and customers in shaping an entirely new spectator experience for sports fans.”
