Pay TV operator Cable TV says it will broadcast Uefa Champions League and Uefa Europa League soccer matches over the next three seasons until 2015 after securing the broadcasting rights. It did not disclose the bidding price. Meanwhile, rival Now TV says it will continue to air the Spanish La Liga until the 2014/15 season. Kick-off times for La Liga matches in the coming season will start earlier at 10pm on Saturdays and Sundays in rescheduling of the league's programme.
