The Macao East Asian Games Organizing Committee (MEAGOC) signed a TV signal production and transmission contract with China Central TV (CCTV) Macao on October 29 to sell the host broadcasting right of the event.

The 29.3 million yuan (3.6 million US dollars) contract was linked by Fernando Chui Sai On, Secretary of Social and Cultural Affairs of the Macao Special Administrative Region government, and CCTV director Zhao Huayong.

Under the contract, CCTV will use its production and global broadcasting coverage network to produce and relay promotional programs, opening and closing ceremony, torch relay, semi-finals and finals of 15 sports of the Fourth East Asian Games (EAG) to be held from October 29 to November 6 next year in Macao.
