Eurosport HD in Italy starting 1 August !!!
Eurosport HD is going to be broadcasted by Sky Italia starting 1 august. The news is not official yet, but more than one "insider" from both part had confirmed what it's now more than a rumour.
Eursoport has the rights (even for HD) for the incoming Beijing Olympic Games.
This means Italian Sky's subscribers will have the opportunity to watch that relevant event in HD quality with italian commentary.
On the other way around, italian public tv RAI will broadcast the games in HD via digital terrestrial only, covering just few areas and a limitated number of viewers.
