Mediapro launches new Spanish DTT channel Gol

Thursday 2 June 2016 | 10:40 CET | News
Spanish broadcaster Mediapro has begun airing its new DTT channel Gol on a trial basis, promising live and recorded broadcasts of a wide variety of different sports, including football, tennis, paddle tennis, basketball, cycling, athletics, wrestling, motor racing and extreme sports. Gol will occupy the space vacated by Veo TV after Mediapro reached a deal with publisher Unidad Editorial to rent its frequency for EUR 3.5 million a year. The new sports channel is the sixth network to occupy one of the frequencies licensed following a controversial DTT auction held in October 2015.
