Eurosport HD goes live in Switzerland

Eurosport HD has launched on the Cablecom network in Switzerland, completing a deal with UPC that has this week seen the TF1-owned channel rollout in the Czech Republic and Slovakia, following an earlier agreement in Hungary.

“The launch of Eurosport HD on UPC’s platform in further three countries, will facilitate the development of their HD offer and will help us to reinforce our position as the leading sports channel in Europe,” said Jean Thierry Augustin, Eurosport’s managing director of distribution and development.

Cablecom will carry the English version of Eurosport HD as part of its Cablecom Collection and Cablecom Sports & More packs.

Close to 40 major carriage deals have been struck for the new HD channel, across 27 channels and 14 languages.
