A new agreement has been signed between Discovery Networks and Telia, returning the Discovery’s channels to Swedish TV homes.
Kanal 5, Kanal 9, Kanal 11, Discovery, Discovery ID, Eurosport 1, Eurosport 2, TLC, Animal Planet and Discovery Science had been missing from the telco’s TV service following a breakdown in negotiations.
“We are very pleased to have a new agreement in place and that our customers can now continue to watch Discovery’s channels and be able to offer Dplay. We are also very pleased to be able to offer the Swedish football league to all our customers. This is one of the issues we have been struggling with,” explained Linda Hernström, director of Telia’s TV service.
Temporary channels made available to customers by way of compensation will remain on the network until April 2.
