Ziggo takes new step in turnaround

Thursday 27 August 2015 | 16:22 CET | Author: Tim Poulus | Market Commentary
Ziggo is reportedly planning to launch its own free sports channel, Ziggo Sport. It's thought to be working with the channel Sport1, which will contribute rights (Champions League, Formula 1, Spanish football) and the presenter Jack van Gelder. Ziggo customers would not pay any extra for access to the channel. The new channel appears promising and could help Ziggo turnaround its results after its recent difficulties.
