Eurosport 1 HD and Eurosport 2 HD are to be made available to DAZN subscribers in Austria, Germany, Italy and Spain after the streaming service struck a distribution deal with Eurosport owners Discovery.
The deal gives DAZN access to Eurosport’s UEFA Champions League, UEFA Europa League, Premier League, LaLiga, Serie A, Ligue 1, NBA, NFL, NHL, UFC, Matchroom and Golden Boy boxing coverage.
In addition, DAZN has exclusively sublicensed 45 Bundesliga matches from Discovery in Germany and Austria.
The deal excludes Eurosport Player which remains the only place to watch all Eurosport content, including features and feeds not available to TV viewers, live and on-demand on all screens.
John Gleasure, Chief Business Development Officer at DAZN Group, said: “This is an exciting agreement that brings Eurosport’s incredible sports content to our subscribers, and delivers 45 Bundesliga matches to the DAZN service in Germany and Austria under a two-season exclusive sublicensing agreement.
“This deal underlines our commitment to providing the biggest and best sports action to fans in an accessible and affordable way, while rewarding rights holders for integrating their content on our market leading platform.
“We look forward to developing our partnership with Discovery.”
James Gibbons, in his role as Head of Commercial Development for EMEA at Discovery, said: “We are delighted to enter this partnership that expands the distribution of Eurosport’s channels in four European markets.
“We always look for new partners that help get our brands and content to more fans. In parallel, we will continue to develop and market our all access multi-sport OTT service – Eurosport Player – for fans who want a deeper experience.”
