Liberty Global and Discovery Communications today announce a long-term, comprehensive renewal of their distribution agreement that guarantees delivery of Discovery’s full portfolio of fan-favorite networks, including flagships Discovery Channel, TLC, ID and Eurosport, to Liberty Global customers across its 12 European countries: Austria, Belgium, Czech Republic, Germany, Hungary, Ireland, Poland, Romania, Netherlands, Slovakia, Switzerland and the United Kingdom.
The deal also includes digital rights, ensuring passionate fans can access their favorite networks and shows on multiple screens, in and out of the home, through Liberty Global’s broadband companies, which include UPC, Virgin Media, Ziggo, Telenet and Unitymedia.
As a relatively new player on the global sports stage, Discovery has been consistently investing in sports that are more premium, more exclusive and more locally relevant to passionate fans in markets across Europe. Liberty customers will have access to all of these key sporting events, which include in various markets MotoGP, Bundesliga, Premier League, Grand Slam tennis, and for the first time ever, every moment of the Olympic Games, including a significant number of events and coverage that only will be available on Eurosport.
