Sports fans will love the brilliance and will be able to enjoy all the emotions and impressive stories of the Olympic Games even more intensively,” says Susanne Aigner, Managing Director of Discovery Germany.
Over 200 hours of HDR content will be available.

In addition, many consumers are planning to equip themselves with the latest technology in this year of sporting highlights. That is why we are particularly pleased to be able to offer all sports enthusiasts, together with Eurosport 4K, a visual experience that has never been seen before,” added Georges Agnes, Managing Director of HD PLUS GmbH.
