The Polish DTH platform nc+ has added two new proprietary sports channel to its offer.
Known as Canal+ Sport 3 and Canal+ Sport 4, they are dedicated to coverage of the Polish premier football league PKO Ekstraklasa and will be made available for distribution by other TV operators. Local reports indicate that one of them could be Cyfrowy Polsat, nc+’s main competitor.
Commenting on the launch, nc+ CEO Edyta Sadowska said: “The launch of two new channels dedicated to PKO Ekstraklasa games will allow the extension of the distribution model of national competitions to include further TV platforms. The long-term advantage is not only for all fans, but also for PKO Ekstraklasa and football clubs. For us, it is also possible to monetise expensive sports rights in the entire market, and not only on our own platform”.―Broadband TV News
