FOX Sports Asia races to number 1 with Wimbledon 2017

Asia’s leading Pay TV sports network surges ahead with strong tournament
audiences

Singapore, 24 July 2017 – FOX Sports Asia, the Home of the Grand Slams, concluded another successful broadcast of Wimbledon. This year’s tournament’s broadcast on
FOX Sports and FOX Sports 2 reached more than 7.7 million fans in Malaysia, the
Philippines, Singapore, Taiwan, Thailand and Vietnam. Wimbledon’s strong appeal
helped cement FOX Sports once again as the #1 rated sports channel during the
tournament period (3-16 July 2017) in metered markets.

Most notably, the Gentlemen’s Singles Final, which saw Roger Federer capture his
record 8th Wimbledon singles title, drew 1.9 million viewers (with an average
viewership time of 53 minutes*), making it the most-watched sports event on Pay TV
during the tournament period. Overall, average time spent watching live matches
during the tournament increased substantially to 49 minutes, a 33% increase from
2016. More fans than ever also engaged with specially-curated Wimbledon video
content on the FOX Sports digital platform, which generated more than 5 million
impressions.

“We are very proud of the success of this year’s Wimbledon championship.”
remarked Italo Zanzi, Executive Vice President and Managing Director, Sports, FOX
Networks Group Asia, “Our comprehensive coverage generated new highs in
audience levels on our television channels and fan engagement on our digital
networks. We look forward to building on this strength during our inaugural US Open
broadcast next month and delivering fans and advertisers unique value.”

FOX Sports produced over 200 hours of live coverage during Wimbledon 2017, which
featured on-site studio presentation hosted by Jason de la Peña and featuring
Wimbledon Champions Marion Bartoli and Richard Krajicek, and former World No. 5,
Daniela Hantuchová.

The success of Wimbledon 2017 follows record audience numbers for the broadcast
of the Australian Open and Roland Garros earlier this year. Tennis fans in Asia can look
forward to FOX Sports’ comprehensive coverage of the US Open in August.
