This agreement will benefit 1.8 million customers of UPC and the MySports distribution partners from Suissedigital, as well as 1.55 million Swisscom TV customers. They will then have the unrestricted opportunity to follow all games of the top Swiss football and hockey leagues, as well as the matches of the UEFA Champions League, the Bundesliga, many other European football leagues, and the European and North American hockey leagues. All customers will be able to enjoy the full content of MySports and Teleclub. The offer is expected to be bookable on the respective TV platforms sometime in the third quarter of 2020, and thus in good time for the start of the new football and hockey season.
The present agreement satisfies a long-held wish not only for fans, but also for those responsible at the involved telecommunications providers. Baptiest Coopmans, CEO UPC, comments: “Already less than three years after its launch, MySports has developed into a leading player on the Swiss TV sports landscape. With distribution on Swisscom TV we will be able to make a wish come true for many fans of Swiss ice hockey: full access to MySports via Swisscom. At the same time, customers of UPC and the MySports distribution partners from Suissedigital will benefit from the full sports and entertainment offerings of Teleclub, which has been a long-standing desire of ours.”
Urs Schaeppi, CEO Swisscom, adds: “We are continually expanding our Teleclub Entertainment offerings and we delight customers with highly emotional content. Now all Swisscom TV and UPC customers, as well as TV customers of other platforms, will soon be able to enjoy the respective content from MySports and Teleclub, at the same conditions. That’s an important milestone. We are very pleased that, for the benefit of all sport fans, we have now been able to reach this important agreement.”
MySports shows all Swiss Ice Hockey National League games, live and exclusively. The offer with exciting live sports, entertaining studio broadcasts, emotional original productions and Bundesliga live on Sky is available in German, French and Italian.
