Eleven to launch new OTT channel in Belgium

International sports broadcaster Eleven Sports will launch a third channel in Belgium tomorrow (Thursday).

The OTT channel, Eleven Sports 3, will be available in Flemish and French and will show hockey, handball, darts and mixed martial arts, as well as the Spanish LaLiga, Italian Serie A and French Ligue 1 football top divisions.

Eleven said that talks are ongoing with distributors with a view to making Eleven Sports 3 available in their packages.

Viewers in Belgium will be able to access all three channels for €9.99 ($10.60) per month or €99 per year. Alternatively, viewers can subscribe to Eleven Sports 3 exclusively for €1 per week.

Earlier this week Eleven sealed a strategic partnership with consumer electronics company Samsung that will allow the broadcaster’s OTT application to feature on the company’s internet-connected televisions via the Tizen operating system.
