Impress Matra Consortium has acquired the broadcasting rights of the Bangladesh Premier League (BPL) Twenty20 for the next three editions. Local satellite channels Gazi TV and Maasranga TV have been selected as the telecast partners while Radio Bhoomi and Radio Shadhin will be the radio partners from 2017-19.
Virgo Limited, a concern of Channel 9, won the broadcasting rights for six years before the first season of the BPL. However, its inability to keep the financial commitment forced the BPL governing council to go for a new deal. It is understood that the Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) had some a financial dispute with Channel 9
Channel 9 telecast the first four seasons of BPL, but due to excessive advertisements and poor quality of match coverage, they were always highly criticized by the spectators.
Meanwhile Dhaka Communications won the ground rights of the upcoming season of BPL.
