Ahli satellite channel, set to launch later this year, will have the exclusive satellite rights of airing the team s domestic games, club Chairman Hassan Hamdi said on Wednesday.
The matches will be aired terrestrially as usual but our channel will be the only available satellite broadcaster, Hamdi told a press briefing.
There are huge numbers of Ahli fans abroad and we want to make the maximum benefit through increasing the channel subscriptions.
Hamdi, who is also the chairman of Egypt s leading advertising agency of Al-Ahram, didn t reveal how much a subscription would cost.
Satellite networks Arab Radio and Television (ART), Dream channels and Orbit have already struck a deal with the Egyptian FA to broadcast the local league matches, including Ahli games.
But Hamdi said that the administration would only do what is best for Ahli as it has the full authority to decide whether to sell the satellite rights to other channels or not.
