CSI Sports, a provider of televised fighting content, has signed a carriage deal for its new 24/7 HD Network Fight Sports with Pay-TV operator, Telia, becoming Scandinavia’s first dedicated network to support the entire genre through exclusive events and original programming.
The channel will be launched by Telia in Sweden on January 15th and by Sonera in Finland later this month.
The launch on Scandinavia’s leading Pay-Tv operator continues the rapid global expansion of the Fight Sports Network.
