TV2 acquire rights to the X Games

Danish commercial broadcaster TV2 has acquired rights to the X Games from 2019, taking over rights from public-service broadcaster DR.

The deal was signed with the organiser of the event, US sports broadcaster ESPN.

Earlier this year, Sportkanalen, the sports channel operated by Swedish pay-television broadcaster C More, extended its partnership in Sweden with ESPN into 2019.

X Games events in 2018 were held in the US, Australia and Norway.
