Discovery adds Eurosport 4K in new Telekom Slovenije deal

International media group Discovery has agreed a new carriage deal in Slovenia with Telekom Slovenije, adding a selection of channels, including the ultra-HD channel Eurosport 4K, to the telco’s platform.

The new deal also includes carriage of Eurosport 1, Eurosport 2, along with other entertainment channels in the Discovery portfolio. The telco will be the first in Slovenia to carry the Eurosport 4K channel.

Discovery holds a host of sports rights in Slovenia, including premium rights in tennis, golf, and cycling, along with the Bundesliga, Germany’s top-tier football league.

Last month, Telekom Slovenije halted the availability of the Sport TV 1,2 and 3 channels on its platform, following a dispute over carriage prices.

At the time, Telekom Slovenije said: “Recently, the prices of programming rights on the market have increased markedly and we negotiate with each provider, as a sensible company, in order to provide our clients with the best content at an affordable price.”
