Eurosport to remain on Sky
For a number of weeks now, Discovery, the parent firm of the Eurosport channel had been threatening to remove all of its 12 channels from Sky over payment disagreements.
Eurosport is the only channel which has exclusive rights to show the World and British Superbike Championships, so if it was to be removed, many would miss out on live sport.
However, only numerous hours before they pulled their channels from Sky completely, Discovery announced that an agreement had been made between both firms and all of Discovery’s 12 channels will remain on Sky.
Apparently, Discovery were looking for Sky to pay them around £1 Billion to keep the channels, so we wonder how much they actually went for once a deal was made.
Good news for all!
