A new sports channel is coming to FLOW! RUSH, home of the English Premier League (EPL) for the Caribbean, will make its debut across all FLOW TV markets today as fans get ready for the 2019/20 EPL season kick-off.

Britta Reinhardt, chief commercial officer, consumer, for C&W Communications, operator of the consumer brands FLOW, BTC and UTS in the Caribbean, said, “This is a huge win for all football fans across the region. As we continue to place our ­customers at the heart of everything we do, our priority is to provide them with exciting and fun access to premium sports. Adding the RUSH channel to our line-up was an easy decision in that it gives our customers the access they deserve.”

Reinhardt added, “This means that FLOW customers who are die-hard fans of the Premier League will continue to tune in to FLOW TV to enjoy riveting football action in real time and have 24/7 access to all of the Premier League coverage they desire.” FLOW will replace its current FLOW Sports Premier channel with RUSH, making access to the upcoming EPL season seamless. RUSH will be available in all FLOW TV markets on the same channel number that FLOW Sports Premier previously utilised.

Peter Drury, Martin Tyler and Mark Lawrenson will deliver world-class commentary and analysis throughout the season. Additionally, fans can look forward to programming favourites like ‘Matchday LIVE’, ‘Premier League Today’ and ‘Fanzone’, as well as new programmes like ‘Fantasy Premier League’, ‘Matchday Live Extra’ and ‘Weekend Warm Up’.

Football fans across the region continue to score big as RUSH will bring viewers to the very edge of the action, excitement and drama of the EPL.
