Handball goal for Norkring – set to deliver for Eurosport
(4th of November 2015) Norkring has been chosen by Discovery to provide contribution services in connection with handball.
– This is an important agreement, and confirmation that Norkring provides competitive services, says Sales Director Torbjørn Østli. He makes no attempt to conceal the fact that Medianett is an exciting and growing area in which Norkring wants to hold a key position.
The delivery involves establishing fibre connections to each arena and providing Teradek compression technology.
Discovery Networks have won the rights to Norwegian international handball matches and GRUNDIGligaen for the next three years. This means that the channel MAX and the new sports channel Eurosport Norge will become the home ground for stars such as Nora Mørk and Sander Sagosen.
– Handball is one of the most popular and best-loved sports in the country, with the potential to bring many people together in front of the TV, says Head of Sport at TVNorge and Discovery Networks, Jan-Erik Aalbu. He is very pleased with the new agreement and looks forward to working closely with Norkring.
