December 28, 2017

The continued availability of the Discovery and Eurosport pay-TV channels on Finnish multiplay telco DNA’s platforms at the turn of the year has been assured, with DNA and Discovery reaching an agreement regarding the distribution of the channels.

The discontinuation would have affected the viewing of many channels on cable and terrestrial networks as well as IPTV and mobile services.

“We are very pleased to have come to an agreement with Discovery and to be able to continue distributing the popular channels to our customers without interruption. We can now set our sights on the upcoming Winter Olympics, which can be viewed comprehensively by DNA networks’ customers,” advised Pekka Väisänen, Senior Vice President of DNA’s Consumer Business.

The discontinuation would have affected a range of channels, including Animal Planet, Discovery Channel, Discovery HD Showcase, Discovery Science, Discovery World, Investigation Discovery, Eurosport 1 and Eurosport 2.
