Eurosport has a new Australian home on Fetch, with the partnership between Discovery and Fetch TV being expanded to a market-leading, eight-channel portfolio from Saturday 1 February.

In Australia, Eurosport is the home of passion sports including cycling, athletics, winter sports and snooker.

The agreement with Fetch TV furthers Eurosport’s goal to power its dedicated viewers’ passions as the number one destination for specialist sports in 2020. Eurosport’s exciting offering this year includes:

  • Major international athletics events throughout the year, beginning with the World Indoor Tour events in Germany in February;
  • ad-break-free live stage coverage of key cycling events including two Grand Tours – the Giro d’Italia in May (exclusive to Eurosport) and the Vuelta a España in August – plus all Spring Classics and Monuments;
  • the world’s biggest snooker tournaments including the World Championships in May;
  • the final events in the winter sports World Cup seasons including Freestyle Skiing, Snowboarding, Alpine Skiing, Ski Jumping and more.

“We are thrilled that Eurosport has a new Australian home with Fetch TV as we expand our partnership,” said Discovery general manager of Australia, New Zealand & Pacific Islands Rebecca Kent.

“Eurosport has a loyal audience of Aussies who are extremely passionate about sports like cycling, athletics, snooker and winter sports. We believe that every fan counts and are proud to continue fuelling their passions by delivering a line-up of premium events throughout the year.”

Fetch TV CEO Scott Lorson said:“Fetch TV is very excited about our expanding relationship with Discovery, and look forward to adding Eurosport, Discovery Turbo, and Investigation Discovery to the Fetch platform over the next two months.”

“Eurosport has been one of our most requested channel additions, and we are pleased to be able to service this passionate fan base.  Eurosport continues to invest in premium content and the future is bright with expanding rights, and compelling coverage.  Eurosport is a perfect complement to our existing premium international sports offering, and will join Optus Sport, ESPN, EDGESport, beIN SPORTS, and UFC Pay-Per-View on the Fetch platform.”

Eurosport will be available on Fetch CH 156 on a free trial basis to all Fetch direct retail customers throughout the month of February*.  It will then be offered as an A La Carte Special Interest channel for $8.99 per month. Fetch partner ISP launch dates will be confirmed shortly.

The addition of Eurosport to Fetch brings the partnership between Discovery and Fetch TV to a market leading eight channels.  This follows the December announcement of the renewal of Discovery Channel, TLC, HGTV, Food Network and Travel Channel on Fetch, as well as the upcoming 1 March launch of Discovery Turbo and Investigation Discovery (ID). There will also be an expansion in video-on-demand rights.
