Discovery Communications announced at Mobile World Congress plans to sub-license rights to the Olympic Games in Europe to a mobile provider, with the creation of the 'Official Mobile Broadcaster' product. Discovery and its unit Eurosport hold the TV and multimedia rights in Europe for the Olympics from 2018 through 2024. The 'Official Mobile Broadcaster' designation will give mobile providers the opportunity to co-brand with the Olympic Rings and offer their own 24/7 channel, with real-time highlights and news, as well as on-demand content.
