From David Del Valle in Madrid
Spanish production company Mediapro has reached an agreement with Vodafone-ONO to launch Qatar’s Al Jazeera Sports TV channel beIN Sports on the platform.
The channel -already available on Telefonica’s Movistar TV- is likely to be launched on other pay TV platforms since Mediapro is negotiating with all distribution TV platforms in Spain.
The channel will broadcast the main international football competitions such as the Uefa Champions League and the Europa League, among other sports.
beIN Sports is the former Al Jazeera Sport and currently operates four channels in France as well as several more in the US, Canada and Asia.
