Eurosport Asia-Pacific launches HD channel
Eurosport has unveiled a new high definition channel available to operators and viewers across its Asia-Pacific territories, adding to Eurosport Asia-Pacific and Eurosportnews which are currently distributed in 19 countries and territories across the region.
TFN Media and Kbro in Taiwan and SkyLife in South Korea are the first distribution platforms to take up the new channel, with more platforms set to follow before the end of the year.
Eurosport’s Managing Director of Asia-Pacific, Arjan Hoekstra said: “Sport as a genre is ideally suited for high definition (HD) broadcasting. It enhances the viewer experience, and heightens the emotion and action that is synonymous with sport.
“Eurosport Asia-Pacific has always been committed to offering our viewers choice, by broadcasting a wide variety of over 60 sports, and focusing on live coverage. Now our viewers have the added option of watching these sports with superior picture and sound quality, as nowhere is the value of HD more apparent than in sports.”
The Eurosport Asia-Pacific HD channel will be a near simulcast of the current Eurosport Asia-Pacific standard definition channel, with key content in HD to include the Tour de France, WTA Women’s Tennis Tour, IAAF Diamond League Athletics, World Touring Car Championships, 24 Hours of Le Mans, Rugby French Top 14, Eurocup Basketball, World Championships of Alpine Skiing and much more.
