Dutch cable networks will now once again be able to offer their subscribers live football from the Tele2 Live Eredivisie Voetbal channels. For the past two years Dutch football has only been available via IPTV, DTT and DTH because there was no contract with Tele 2, which owns the live rights to the Dutch Eredivisie, the top tier of the country’s football.
Following an agreement between IPTV provider Tele 2 and major cable operators including UPC, Casema, @Home, Multikabel, CAIW and Delta, cable viewers will now have access again to the Dutch main competition. The Tele 2 football product can be purchased as a stand-alone product or in a package with premium channels Sport1 and Film1 from Chellomedia.
In a separate agreement, the Tele 2 IPTV service will now start to offer the Film1 and Sport1 packages to their subscribers. All four Film1 channels will become available as well as Sport1 and Sport1 Extra.
