Samsung added Eurosport player to its Smart TV app center and will be available in 40 territories. The latest Eurosport player app will provide 5000 hours of non stop sporting action every year which includes big events like Tour de France, World Championship Athletics, tennis Grand Slams, The Australian, French and US Open, Africa Cup of Nations and the full 2013/14 winter sports season.
Guy Kinnell, Head of TV and AV at Samsung Electronics UK & Ireland, commented: “According to our recently released ‘Samsung Futures: The Future of Smart TV’ report one in 10 people in the UK1 are more likely to watch sport on TV than go to an event. With rising ticket prices across sport, having the Eurosport TV App on our platform ensures live sport is part of the viewing experience that we can offer on Smart TVs and we’re thrilled to be providing our customers with the best range of sporting content via our award-winning Smart TV range.”
“Eurosport has been delivering innovative programming for many years; ensuring sports fans get the best live sports experience possible. We are very proud to be able to bring our services onto Samsung Smart TV and look forward to introducing viewers to a more dynamic and engaging viewing experience,” added Arnaud Maillard, Eurosport’s Director of Internet & New Media.
