Eurosport 2 goes live on MEO
MEO, the Portugal Telecom-owned operator, has expanded its relationship with Eurosport after agreeing to bring another one of the Discovery Communications-owned European sports broadcaster’s channels to its service.
Eurosport 2 HD, which will show coverage of the 2018 PyeongChang Winter Olympic Games, has been available to MEO customers since November.
MEO’s sports offering includes exclusive coverage of NBA TV, the television channel of North American basketball’s NBA, and Porto Canal, the television channel managed by top Portuguese soccer giants FC Porto.
Discovery holds Olympic rights across Europe (excluding Russia) in a deal that runs from 2018 to 2024 and is worth €1.3 billion ($1.5 billion).
