Discovery extends carriage deal with Sky Italia

Media company Discovery has signed a new carriage agreement in Italy with pay-television broadcaster Sky Italia.

The Calcio e Finanza news website reported that the two parties have signed a new three-year agreement that will ensure all Discovery channels remain part of Sky’s offering.

The deal covers all channels of Discovery-owned international sports broadcaster Eurosport.

The deal does not cover the summer and winter Olympic Games but includes coverage of properties such as the Australian Open grand slam tennis tournament.
