Swiss cable operator UPC will launch new sports channel MySports One on August 14, 2018.
The ‘best of’ channel will show selected live broadcasts of the premium channels MySports 2 to 9.
The schedule will comprise three games per week of the Swiss Ice Hockey National League including discussions with experts, background reports and documentaries as well as Swiss handball, volleyball, basketball, horse racing, motor sports (Formula E and DTM) and eSport.
The channel will also transmit live matches of the German Bundesliga through an agreement with German pay-TV broadcaster Sky Deutschland.
MySports One will be available to all digital TV customers of UPC Switzerland and collaborating network operators at no extra charge.
The previous basic channel MySports HD will continue to exist, but no longer on its current channel slot and under the new name MySports Preview, a UPC spokesman told Broadband TV News. Live sports will continue to be broadcast, but to a slightly lower extent than before, including one game of the Swiss Ice Hockey National League per week. The live sports coverage on MySports Preview is also to be shown on MySports One.
