Leading Asian sports channel, TEN Sports, has upgraded to full HD production with Harris Broadcast. The channels are based in Noida, India, and owned and operated by Indian media group, Zee Entertainment Enterprises. The broadcaster has long-term rights to major sports events, including ATP tennis, European and American PGA golf, and UEFA Champions League football.
