Cable TV said at least three Spanish soccer league matches, including one involving Real Madrid, will be broadcast live at the weekend as the company battles complaints over its failure to air some games last Saturday and Sunday. I-Cable Sports executive director Ronald Chiu pledged to work with Sportfive, the league's distributor, to solve a contract dispute. 'We will also be working with them to ensure that TV signals of future matches of the season will be made available to us undisrupted pursuant to our agreement,' he said. Sportfive has apologised to i-Cable Sports and other broadcasters for 'insufficient communication', Cable TV said.
