UPC to move ESPN America

By Robert Briel | May 6, 2009

UPC Nederland is to move the US sports channel ESPN America to a premium tier, making the channel only available to subscribers of Chellomedia’s Sport1.

Until now, ESPN America was available to all subscribers to the extended digital tier (UPC Royaal). However, the channel has now been moved to accompany the Sport1 multiplex, consisting of Sport1, Sport2, Sport 1 Extra and Sport 1 HD.

A Sport.1 subscription costs €9.95 a month, and there will be no additional charge for ESPN America.
