Who has the broadcast rights for these two Leagues for South Africa and the Rest of Africa? I would imagine that it's MC? If so then the Rest of Africa must have some sort of arrangement with MC for them to screen the La Liga football?

To save you the pain, its the business model which hate it or love makes sense because now you have to upgrade. For years the only way you could watch SS3 ROA was to upgrade to Premium. Outside SA there is no real market for SS4 or Rugby for that matter but European soccer, ever facing greater competition from both legal and illegal options MC has to leverage their positions in those markets.

Simply put, there are more people who pay to solely to watch Messi vs Ronaldo than people who pay to watch The Targaryens vs The Lannisters
