“The success HD+ has enjoyed in 2016 illustrates that content in HD, and especially sports content, matters to TV viewers,” said Georges Agnes, Chief Operating Officer at HD PLUS. “This new cooperation with Discovery Networks and Eurosport is key for the positioning of HD+, as this is the first time we offer our customers exclusive content in addition to the free-to-air-portfolio. This new Pay-TV package is available to households already enjoying HD+, and is an ideal addition for Sky customers who want to be able to see all the Bundesliga games live from now on. Based on our possible technical reach of nearly 18 million households in Germany at 19.2 degrees East, we are the leading HD supplier via satellite and the ideal partner to distribute sports content to fans across the country.”
