The channel’s latest carriage deal follows its move from exclusive to non-exclusive carriage with Sky Deutschland earlier this year. That change freed the service up to strike agreement with other distribution partners in the German-speaking area.
The UPC deal gives Motorvision TV access to a potential 1.3 million homes in Switzerland, including 700,000 premium homes, where it is carried as part of UPC’s Sport TV package, and 500,000 in Austria, including 370,000 premium homes, where it is offered as part of the Horizon TV Plus HD package.
In the German-speaking area, Motorvision TV continues to be available on satellite via Sky Deutschland, on IPTV via Deutsche Telekom’s EntertainTV and on the internet via OTT services M2M TV (Mobile2Morrow) and Watch-it!
The channel said that further distribution partners for the German feed will be announced shortly.
