VOC has also chosen the national television broadcaster – VTV – as the Vietnamese representative to buy the TV rights of the 27th SEA Games. After obtaining the copyright, VTV will have share it with local TV stations.
Giang says the price is anticipated to not be high. The Myanmar National TV (MRTV) is the holder of the television copyright of 27th SEA Games.
