DNA and Discovery have agreed to bring Eurosport 1 HD and Eurosport 2 HD to DNA’s VHF terrestrial network. The channels will be available on DNA’s terrestrial network from January 25th. DNA will automatically add the new channels to all terrestrial network channel packages with a corresponding standard definition channel.
Eurosport 1 HD and Eurosport 2 HD will be introduced as new, high-definition channels in DNA’s VHF terrestrial network. These channels form part of DNA’s pay-TV offering for the terrestrial network. Eurosport 2 HD will be available until April 7th. Eurosport 1 HD will be added to all channel packages that include the Eurosport 1 SD channel, and Eurosport 2 HD to packages that include Eurosport 2 SD. The DNA SportMix combination package includes both channels. The channels will be automatically added to both new and existing package subscriptions; no special actions are required from subscribers.
“We are delighted to be able to bring these two, excellent Eurosport channels to our terrestrial network in high definition. Viewers in terrestrial homes will now be able to watch the Winter Olympics with unbeatable picture quality. We are in for a thrilling three weeks of Olympics, but Eurosport’s high-definition channels offer a very wide spectrum of other sports as well, all in impressively sharp image quality,” says Mikko Saarentaus, Director at DNA Entertainment Business.
