HD+ subscribers will now be able to view live football matches as well as Tennis Grand Slams, Cycling highlights, and MotoGP, due to extended offer of HD+ following a partnership with the leading media company Discovery Networks Germany, Eurosport’s parent company.
Under the new agreement with Discovery Networks Germany, SES’s German HD media platform HD+ is delivering a Eurosport package offer, which includes access to the new sports channel Eurosport 2 HD Xtra and the Eurosport Player on any device. The Eurosport 1HD channel was added to the HD+ portfolio in 2016.
HD+ exceeded the two million subscriber’s landmark at the end of 2016, with a 15 percent year-on-year increase. This new cooperation with Discovery Networks and Eurosport is a key for the positioning of HD+, as this is the first time HD+ will offer customers exclusive content in addition to the free-to-air-portfolio.
