Manchester United and Saudi Telecom Company (STC) have launched the telecommunication giant’s exclusive rights to broadcast the football club’s dedicated MUTV channel in the Gulf region.

This is the first time MUTV has been broadcast continuously in the Middle East, giving STC Invision subscribers unprecedented access to behind-the-scenes footage of the famous club, documentaries and breaking news, as well as live commentary of every Manchester United match, including reserve and youth team games.

The channel will also be broadcast in HD, the only dedicated football club channel available in this format, a statement said.

Manchester United Group managing director Richard Arnold said: "Since forming our partnership in 2008, STC has demonstrated its expertise in developing and delivering outstanding products that meet the needs of our fans.

"By making MUTV available via its HD subscription channel to the almost four million Manchester United followers in the Middle East, STC is helping our fans to get closer to the club they love."
