ELEVEN AGREE PRO LEAGUE DISTRIBUTION DEAL WITH ORANGE
Orange Belgium will make ELEVEN SPORTS Belgium’s three new dedicated Pro League channels available to their customers for the next five seasons, following an agreement between the groups on Thursday.
Orange Belgium is the first player to complete a distribution agreement with ELEVEN SPORTS for the Jupiler Pro league. Orange Love Trio customers will be able to subscribe to a premium football bundle including the Jupiler Pro League. Orange Love Duo and mobile customers will be able to subscribe to ELEVEN SPORTS' monthly OTT passes to watch Belgian football online. In addition, ELEVEN’s three existing channels, which include rights to LaLiga, the Bundesliga, NBA and much more will remain part of Orange´s standard digital TV package without any additional fee.
Christophe Dujardin, Chief Consumer Officer at Orange Belgium, said "We are very excited to bring the Belgian soccer to our customers’ screens. They already enjoy the 3 ELEVEN SPORTS Channels for free. Adding local football competitions in a new premium sports option is the logical evolution to deliver an even better value to our customers. It completes an Orange TV offer which already contained a whole series of thematic channels, and makes Orange’s Love Trio offer the best solution for passionate Belgian soccer fans, who used to be stuck with their current operator. At Orange, you only pay for what you need. So our customers will not have to take an expensive sports bundle to enjoy the Jupiler Pro League."
Guillaume Collard, Managing Director, ELEVEN SPORTS Belgium & Luxemburg added: “Since the launch of their TV product, ELEVEN SPORTS and Orange Belgium have built a strong partnership together and this new agreement will help us to deliver on our ambition to bring the Pro League competitions to as many fans as possible in the market.”
