In 2022, Discovery’s Elite Series broadcasts will also be shown on TV 2 Play Total

Thus, the top two football leagues in Norway will for the first time be available both on Discovery + and in TV 2 Play Total – in addition to MAX, Eurosport Norway and Eurosport event channels via Norwegian TV distributors.

– We have entered into a distribution agreement with TV 2, similar to what we have with other Norwegian distributors. This means that all matches this year’s season will be available on Discovery +, Discovery’s linear channels at several Norwegian distributors, and now also as part of TV 2’s premium football product, TV 2 Play Total. This is a very good solution both for us, TV 2 and Norwegian football, and it is a very nice way to end the rights period. Our goal is for interest in Norwegian football to grow further in the coming year, says Espen Skoland, head of Discovery in Norway, in a press release.

TV 2 boss Olav T. Sandnes believes the new agreement will give Norwegian football a strong showcase.

– This is an exciting agreement for TV 2, which gives us the opportunity to show Norwegian football from the top two divisions one year before we take over the rights. The broadcasts from the Eliteserien are distributed through TV 2 Play Total, which also includes the entire Champions League, the entire Spanish La Liga and the Premier League. A distribution agreement with Discovery enables us to give Norwegian football an even stronger showcase. When we add that TV 2 will broadcast the European Championships in football for women, the World Cup in football for men and all of Norway’s international matches in 2022, we have a lot to offer Norwegian football fans in the coming year, says Olav T. Sandnes, in a press release.
