Danish TV2 to turn film channel into sports channel

Thursday 21 August 2014 | 23:08 CET | News
Danish broadcaster TV2 said it is will replace the channel TV 2 Film with a sports channel in 2015. TV2 Film has been running for nine years but now has to compete with VoD providers. The new channel will focus on Danish sports events, for which it believes there is an appetite. The new sports channel will be available from Canal Digital, Stofa, Waoo! and Boxer, and TV2 is in talks with other distributors, too. The channel will show Danish handball and football matches, the Olympics, Danish ice hockey and cycling, among other things.
