Ziggo Sport channel to remain free - CEO

Monday 25 January 2016 | 11:04 CET | News
The Ziggo Sport TV channel will remain free for Ziggo customers, according to Ziggo CEO Baptiest Coopmans. In an interview with public broadcaster Radio 1, Coopmans said that while there are probably a couple hundred thousand Dutch consumers willing to pay for sport, the company wants to keep its sport content largely free. The cable operator launched Ziggo Sport last November as its first TV channel produced in-house. It also offers the Ziggo Sport Totaal premium subscription with six pay channels.
