The Vietnam Pay Television Association (VNPayTV) on July 23 has sent a document to the Vietnamese Government Office and the Ministry of Information and Communications, raising its viewpoint on broadcasting rights for the EPL 2013 - 2016 season.

Accordingly, the Association reconfirmed that it has strictly followed directions from the Ministry of Information and Communications for the negotiation of EPL 2013 - 2016 seasons broadcasting rights purchase.

However, the final negotiation on broadcasting rights between prepaid television stations has not been finalized yet, saying that Vietnam Television's idea was not fair.
