Vincent Grynbaum, General Manager, Mediawan Thematics, said: “Mediawan Thematics is excited to bring a new addition to Post Luxembourg’s sports line-up. After a slow year in terms of competition because of the pandemic, we are back to offering viewers 80% of airtime dedicated to live broadcast. Golf Channel was the first one created in France and has always taken pride in showcasing all the ladies’ tournaments which are so seldomly broadcast on linear TV: we hope Post subscribers will tune-in to enjoy no less than 6 live tournaments in July, including the Volunteers of America Classic and Dow Great Lakes Invitational.”
