The first is Eurosport 4K, the UHD iteration of Discovery’s sports network. The channel initially launched in May 2018 in the UK on Sky Q and Virgin Media to coincide with the French Open tennis tournament. Since then, Eurosport 4K has expanded to other nations including Germany and Austria.
The other channel being launched by Discovery is HGTV, the company’s flagship lifestyle brand. Discovery had previously announced that the channel was to launch in Italy, along with 11 Central European nations.
Kenechi Belušević, senior business development manager Discovery CEEMCA said: “we highly value the continuation of our strategic partnership with Telekom Slovenije, through which we will keep delivering on our promise to power people’s passions with content that inspires, informs and entertains.
“We are particularly thrilled to introduce Eurosport 4K and HGTV on the Slovenian market, and we are confident that these new channels will grow into an instrumental part of Telekom Slovenije’s NEO platform.”
Simon Slonjšak, director of business development B2C at Telekom Slovenije, said: “As the market leader we strive to introduce new technologies and content constantly in order to provide our users the best user experience possible.
“Telekom Slovenije is also the first operator in Slovenia to offer Eurosport 4K to its subscribers. New channels complement our top-class content and reflect a leap forward of our inspiring NEO smart living platform.”
