Eleven Sports has confirmed long-term distribution agreements with all four TV operators in Portugal: Altice, NOS, Nowo and Vodafone.
Following last week’s report that the streamer was in talks with TV operators, it has now confirmed all eight UEFA Champions League last 16 fixtures will be available on all four platforms.
Marc Watson, Eleven Sports executive chairman and group CEO, said: “This is a significant moment in our development as a Group, which also establishes Eleven Sports as a leading player in Portugal for the long term.
“We have great content and a great local team in Portugal and we are producing the best ever coverage of the UEFA Champions League and our other properties. The future in this market is very bright.”
Jorge P Sousa, Eleven Sports Portugal MD, added: “Our strategy has always been to be platform agnostic and to be available to all customers whether they want to watch online, through apps or on a traditional TV. With these agreements, we are fulfilling this commitment and making our premium content widely available and easily accessible for the customer at a very competitive price.
“The long-term commitment shown by the local operators validates the innovate approach Eleven Sports has taken in Portugal. We are excited to continue our development as the go-to destination for premium sports, driving engagement with sports fans across traditional and digital platforms.”
