Ski Classics sign new rights deals

Public-service broadcaster Czech TV has extended an agreement for rights to the Ski Classics long-distance skiing championship, while public-service operator Sport TV has signed on as the series’ media partner in Slovenia.

Czech TV’s new three-year deal covers the 2016-17 to 2018-19 Ski Classics seasons.

The length of Sport TV’s agreement was not disclosed, but the deal will at least cover the 2016-17 season, which begins on Sunday with the Prologue Pontresina event in Switzerland.

Sport news video agency SNTV has also reached an agreement with Ski Classics to distribute news around the world during the upcoming season.
