China is also the number one location in the world to host major sporting events, having retained number one position in Sportcal’s Global Sports Nations Index for 2013.
Subsequent to the Agreement, the parties entered into a revised Distribution Agreement on January 20, 2014 whereby STN has agreed to provide SAL transferrable rights for the use, reproduction, storage, display, and transmission of certain content subject to pre-approval in writing from STN.

SendtoNews’ CEO Greg Bobolo commented “SendtoNews is pleased to start this relationship with Syndicore Asia Ltd.
