English Premier League Football - ADMC Sport - HD - All games.

The English Premier League Football is available on ADMC Sport - Abu Dhabi Media Company won the rights to the EPL for the next three seasons, and are amongst the few operators that have the rights to ALL premier league matches, including 3pm kickoffs. Previous rights holders were Showtime / Orbit.

ADMC is transmitting the games in HD, and is starting up some new HD channels for this.

These new ADMC HD channels are testing on both BAdr / Arabsat at 26 east and Atlantic Bird at 7 west.

Also located at 7 west are Nilesats, which many can receive in Spain. However the ADMC HD channels showing English Premier League Football will be on Atlantic Bird, which has a weaker signal footprint than the Nilesats

To watch English Premier League Football on ADMC you will need a satellite dish of about 80cm aligned to 26 east, and a ADMC Sport HD receiver. These receivers have a 12 month subscription built in (embedded).

I do not know what will happen after 12 months (and neither does my supplier! - it may be that a new HD receiver will be required, or simply another payment and the serial number of the receiver - personally I think the former, as the reason for embedding is to try and stop cardsharing and piracy of ADMC channels.

Although the channels are in HD, even if your TV does not have HD technology, you can still watch the channels in SD on your normal TV.


The AD Sports package consists of 10 HD channels and is due to be officially released in mid-July.

The channels are.....AD HD Sports 1 - 6, Sky News HD, Fox Movies HD, Fox Series HD, and National Geographic Abu Dhabi HD.
In an attempt to prevent piracy ADMC have teamed up with Humax and are using a Humax HD Receiver with an embedded 12 month subscription.
