Marpin and SAT seal Olympic dealDominica News Online - Wednesday, July 25th, 2012 at 4:15 PM
Subscribers of Marpin 2K4 Ltd who were concerned that they might not have been able to see the 2012 Olympic Games can now put that to rest.
That’s because the company has successfully negotiated a package deal with SAT Telecoms which has exclusive rights to the games in Dominica.
Acting General Manager of Marpin 2K4, Pericson Isidore, told DNO that the aim of the company is to ensure that its subscribers are happy and from January 2012, Marpin has been in intense behind-the-scenes negotiations with SAT.
“SAT has the exclusive rights for the games and so we had to sub-lease from them at a cost which we cannot disclose,” he said.
Isidore said a key aspect of the arrangement is that it will be at no extra cost to the subscribers. He said both parties were happy to have reached an agreement and they were able to sign the contract on Wednesday.
“We had no price war…but we finally reached an amicable and workable agreement satisfactory to all parties concerned, the broadcast of the games will add further value to our customers,” Isidore said.
SAT obtained the exclusive rights to the games through International Media Corporation (IMC) earlier this year.
