ELEVEN SPORTS EXPANDS OFFER WITH LAUNCH OF FOURTH CHANNEL IN POLAND

By | Latest News, News | No Comments

Global sports provider ELEVEN SPORTS has today launched a fourth channel in Poland, building on the success the platform has achieved in the market since launch in August 2015.

The new service, Eleven Sports 4, will be available exclusively to nc+ subscribers for the first three months. The channel will be available at no extra charge in the extended basic tier and in other premium plans. After the first three months, Eleven Sports 4 will be available beyond nc+ subscribers, marking the third time in just over two years that ELEVEN has added a new channel, once more delivering on the promise of increased access for fans.

Eleven Sports 4 will provide fans with improved access to premium action from Bundesliga, LaLiga, Serie A, Ligue 1 and many other top sports properties – creating space for ELEVEN to deliver leading content it had previously not been able to show.

ELEVEN’s existing channels in Poland – Eleven, Eleven Sports and Eleven Extra – will also be rebranded as Eleven Sports 1, Eleven Sports 2 and Eleven Sports 3.

“The launch of Eleven Sports 4 ensures we steadily increase our market share in Poland while also meeting the growing demand for ELEVEN SPORTS among fans by making our world-class sports content more readily available,” said Danny Menken, Group Managing Director, ELEVEN SPORTS. “We air more than 20 live matches every weekend in Poland and ELEVEN’s channels have regularly been named as the best performing sports channels among viewers aged 16 to 49 this season. We are very pleased to step up our offer to fans across the country and extend our valuable partnership with nc+.”

ELEVEN SPORTS’ success in Poland has been built on an extremely strong portfolio of premium rights and a strategy to deliver localised content with local language commentary from some of the best commentators and pundits. This is supplemented by in-depth, pre and post-match studio and in-stadium analysis – providing fans with broad interactive coverage and incredible insight into the biggest live games and events.

ELEVEN SPORTS was recognised for its outstanding success in Poland by winning Broadcaster of the Year at the 2016 SAT Kurier Awards and Event of the Year at the 2016 Titan Eye Awards.

In addition to leading football, ELEVEN SPORTS subscribers in Poland are also treated to other premium sports including, Formula One; NFL; ATP 250 tennis; and numerous properties which are very popular in the local market including Speedway and MMA.

ELEVEN SPORTS SECURES LIVE RIGHTS TO SERIE A TIM IN ITALY

By | Latest News, News | No Comments

Global sports provider ELEVEN SPORTS has secured LIVE rights to Serie A TIM in Italy.

The platform will show three games LIVE every match week on mobile, tablet and online as part of a pay offer for fans across the country.

The partnership begins on 1 October with Napoli-Cagliari, Benevento-Inter and Milan-Roma and the action will be supplemented by in-depth, pre and post-match analysis from former players, football experts and journalists.

The live games will typically include the 6pm Saturday match and the games at 12:30pm and 3pm on a Sunday – ensuring there will be a spread of premium matches featuring the biggest stars from the league’s top clubs.

The matches will be priced aggressively providing fantastic value for fans with individual games available for €1.99 or all three matches available for €3.99.

Italy became ELEVEN SPORTS’ seventh market when the company acquired national OTT platform Sportube in May 2017 and the acquisition of Serie A matches in Italy builds on Sportube’s success in the market which has steadily grown through the production and delivery of all Serie C games through a dedicated online platform, ensuring fans can follow every one of their favourite team’s matches.

This ground-breaking offer was made possible by the implementation of innovative technical infrastructure that enabled Sportube to cut production costs exponentially while keeping up a high-quality service. During the 2016/17 season, Sportube produced and distributed 1,287 Serie C games creating national interest in a championship that had previously only been distributed locally.

“Our model of acquiring smaller rights with economically viable production costs and widespread appeal amongst domestic fans in Italy has proved very successful and we are thrilled to take our coverage of football to the next level by delivering top Serie A action for the fans.” said Danny Menken, Group Managing Director, ELEVEN SPORTS. “We are looking forward to working in partnership with Serie A to help them reach and grow their fan-base across Italy by providing access to the biggest and best teams and players at an affordable price.”

Since ELEVEN SPORTS’ acquisition of Sportube, a new platform has been launched featuring modern and dynamic graphics and a more intuitive, user-friendly interface that makes navigation easier and faster.

Founded in 2010, Sportube was the first Italian OTT service dedicated to sport. Other rights currently carried on the platform include LIVE coverage of the top Volleyball League, Lega Volley Serie A; Italy’s top waterpolo league; domestic and international fencing; Italy’s 162 team amateur football leagues; the Italian Badminton Championship and a wide offering of motorsport including Superbike, Motocross, Enduro, Italian Rally Championship and the Campionato italiano di velocità – Italy’s premier motorcycle championship.

The platform will be known as Sportube, an ELEVEN SPORTS Company, until a full re-branding process is completed later this year.
