Peru vs. New Zealand: Will it be Streamed?


The first leg between Peru and New Zealand for the repechage to the World Cup 2018 in Russia still has no confirmed transmission channel.

There are about two weeks left until the Peruvian team plays against New Zealand for the first leg of the repechage to the World Cup 2018 in Oceania. We are sure everyone knows already that the match will be played at 10:15 p.m. (Peruvian time) on Friday, November 10. What has not been announced yet is the channel that will broadcast the game to the more than 30 million excited Peruvian fans that are impatiently counting the days left before the match.

According to El Comercio, there are four channels that seek to have the streaming rights to this match.

These are TV Peru, Latina, DirecTV and Movistar Sports. But why is there so much hassle about the streaming rights for the match? Well, the British group Sky Sports is the one holding the streaming rights of the match and is asking for a strong sum to stream it in Peru.

And what about the game in Peru? According to the Marketing Manager of the Peruvian Football Federation, Manuel Rangel, Movistar Deportes and ATV will be streaming the match that will take place in Lima on Wednesday, November 15 at 9:15 p.m.

In the next few days, it will surely be confirmed which channel will stream the first match.

How do you plan to enjoy both matches? Did you go to Plaza de Armas to watch the last match against Colombia?
