Through this agreement, both GO and Melita subscribers will be able to watch the sports content on one network without having to enter into multiple subscriptions with different service providers.
GO plc. and Melita Ltd. have both stated that they will launch their own separate packages in the coming weeks. In the meantime, those who wish to receive updates on new packages are advised to contact their service provider directly.
