DNA and MTV have agreed on offering the Telia Liigapassi and Telia Liigapassi UHD channel packages as part of the DNA TV selection. Telia Liigapassi includes all Liiga matches on seven channels as well as one studio channel. DNA’s cable homes are also offered a package with a super-sharp ultra-high-definition channel. The packages also include a catch-up service where matches can be viewed for 7 days afterwards without the subscriber having to take care of the recording themselves.

“Ice hockey is an extremely popular TV sport in Finland, so naturally we also want to keep the Finnish men’s main league in our selection. With DNA TV Hubi, fans can watch all matches, whether they are in front of the TV at home or their summerhouse,” says Pekka Väisänen, Senior Vice President, Consumer Business.

DNA TV Hubi enables you to watch the matches as an IPTV service over broadband anywhere in Finland. Based on the Android operating system, DNA TV Hubi combines the familiar TV, rental shops and online TV apps into one simple package. The channels can be viewed on all TV screens. Subscribers in DNA’s cable network and DNA TV Hubi’s subscribers can also follow the matches on the DNA TV mobile app from, for example, their phone or tablet.

In addition to the DNA TV Hubi device, DNA’s channel packages can also be ordered to a traditional TV card in DNA’s cable network. The cable network’s high-definition Liiga UHD channel can be watched on any UHD TV (4K).

”MTV strives to build the Liiga the biggest sports phenomenon in Finland again. We are pleased that our long-term partner DNA will also distribute Liiga with us and bring Telia Liigapassi available to DNA’s customers,” says Emmi Vainionpää, Director, Head of Distribution MTV Oy.

According to a digital lifestyle study DNA had commissioned this spring*), almost three out of four (68%) consider it important that they can find the TV programmes they want – such as sports – conveniently in one place.

“The DNA TV service keeps all entertainment in one place, and it can be followed conveniently with one subscription, whether you are at home or using a mobile device,” Väisänen says.

Telia Liigapassi can also be ordered as an affordable addition to the DNA SportMix package. You can select the sports channel packages of your choice to the SportMix package, and you can change the packages once a month. SportMix also offers NHL, Formula 1, Premier League and UEFA Champions League among others. In addition to your choice of packages, SportMix always includes a DNA Sport package with seven sports channels.

Telia Liigapassi channel packages will be available from all DNA sales channels: the dna.fi webshop, DNA Stores, DNA sales service and customer service.

*) The Digital lifestyle (“Digitaaliset elämäntavat”) survey was commissioned by DNA and conducted by Nepa Insight Oy at the end of March 2020.
