Sports TV Station

It is an open secret that Malaysia is going to have its own Sports TV Station which will appear over cable network Astro and not over free TV in the likes of RTM, TV3, TV9, NTV7.
There was an uproar recently over KBS paying a figure ranging from RM8 million to RM14 million for a 30 minute show over ESPN. Interestingly it will cost KBS RM20 million to showcase Malaysian Sports over 5 hours per week in the new Sports TV Station, should the deal go through. Something does not add up here I must say, the figures obviously and why do we have to pay to watch what the Ministry is paying to show. Huh, do not get it, well Malaysian sports has always had ingredients of "foul" in it.
