ESPN Brasil expands carriage deal with UOL

Pay-television sports broadcaster ESPN Brasil has launched four of its channels on UOL Esporte Club, the sports content platform of internet portal UOL.

The channels are ESPN Brasil, ESPN, ESPN 2 and ESPN Extra channel.

ESPN is giving UOL subscribers the option of two offers. The first offer includes the ESPN Play video-on-demand service and the ESPN Extra channel. The second is a wider offer, covering all ESPN products. This second option includes the WatchESPN digital platform, which features more than 600 on-demand and live events, in addition to the four channels.

The new agreement builds upon the carriage partnership signed between ESPN Brasil and UOL last year.
