Man Utd launch MUTV in Japan

Mon 20th Aug 2012 | Television & Broadcasting

Manchester United has teamed up with Fuji TV to launch MUTV in Japan.

This three-year partnership will enable Fuji TV to broadcast MUTV content to its viewers in Japan and will cover matches, interviews and behind-the-scenes footage. The content will be available on Fuji ONE, TWO and NEXT.

United’s commercial director Richard Arnold said: "MUTV is a must for any Manchester United fan, offering up-to-date and exclusive news, interviews and archive footage.

"The dedicated channel has a reach of 60 million worldwide and the club is delighted to be partnering with Fuji TV, one of Japan’s major TV channels, to bring MUTV to Japan.

"This partnership further demonstrates Manchester United’s global reach and allows us to engage with the almost four million followers we have in Japan."

MUTV is managed and produced by United and includes matches from the Barclays Premier League, FA Cup and UEFA Champions League. Fuji TV ONE, TWO and NEXT will broadcast all Reds matches in full from the kick-off to the final whistle.

Other than match action, Fuji TV also plans to broadcast pre-match preview shows and post-match interview specials, as well as documentaries on developments at Old Trafford and archive programmes as the club’s former stars look back on their playing days.
