ATN to broadcast Asia Cup live

Starting next week, the 2008 matches will air as they happen on the Asian Television Network and be rebroadcasted on CBN and ATN Cricket Plus.

The Toronto-based Asian Television Network has snagged exclusive broadcast rights from ESPN STAR sports for this year’s cricket matches in the wildly popular Asia Cup.

Originally created to promote goodwill between Asian countries, the ninth edition of the international cricket tournament will begin on Tuesday, June 24. All matches will begin in Pakistan in late afternoon and be broadcast live on ATN and rebroadcast later on CBN and ATN Cricket Plus on a rotating basis.
