Media and entertainment company Discovery Communications has acquired rights in Denmark for the top divisions of football in England, Spain and Italy in a sublicensing deal with commercial and pay-television broadcaster Modern Times Group.
Discovery has acquired half of MTG's rights for the English Premier League, Spanish LaLiga and Italian Serie A through its Discovery Networks Europe division. The rights are thought to cover three seasons, from 2015-16 to 2017-18.
Discovery will show coverage on television and also via the Dplay and Eurosport Player streaming services. Discovery launched the Eurosport Denmark channel in the country in June.
