Fox Eredivisie reaches record audience with new pricing

Monday 24 April 2017 | 10:16 CET | News
The Dutch football channel Fox Sports Eredivisie said it has seen a strong increase in its audience this season following the revamp of its pricing and distribution last year. The audience reached 91 million in the season to date, compared to 45 million in all of last year's season, a 32 percent increase. Fox renegotiated its distribution with 14 pay-TV providers in the second half of last year, with the monthly price falling at most to EUR 7.50 from EUR 17.50. Some providers also added the channel to their standard TV package, or offered it as a free option with some packages.
