Flow TV Airs Audi Cup 2015, August 4 and 5

Two Days of Riveting Football Action With Top Football Clubs

KINGSTON, JAMAICA--(Marketwired - Aug 4, 2015) - Flow TV kicks off an exciting summer of football with exclusive coverage of the prestigious Audi Cup 2015 on August 4 and 5, two days of live, back to back, riveting football featuring the world's best clubs.

Real Madrid, AC Milan and Tottenham Hotspur will challenge Bayern Munich for the Audi Cup 2015 in the biannual "best in close-up" four-game tournament. Bayern Munich has won two of three Audi Cup tournaments, in 2009 and again in 2013, and viewers will be glued to their Flow TV screens for the fourth edition of the not-to-be-missed championship, which has fast become an essential fixture in the pre-season programme of the world's best clubs.

The matches will air starting at 12:15 p.m. EST and will be available on Flow TV in Antigua, Barbados, Cayman, Grenada, Jamaica, St. Lucia, St. Vincent & the Grenadines and Trinidad & Tobago, as well as being broadcast by the BTC in the Bahamas.

John Reid, President of C&W's Consumer Group, commented, "This latest addition to Flow TV's growing portfolio further demonstrates our commitment to provide customers with relevant and popular content as we continue to position Flow to be the home of the best programming experience across the Caribbean."

Last week C&W unveiled its Flow Football app in partnership with talkSPORT, whereby Caribbean football fans can stay tuned to live audio streaming of the Barclays Premier League Football matches, starting August 8 by simply downloading the new app to their smart devices.
