Discovery’s Eurosport Seals Deal to Show Wimbledon Highlights, Finals for First Time in U.K.

Discovery-owned sports network Eurosport has signed a five-year pact with the organization that runs the Wimbledon Tennis Championships, AELTC, to show live simulcast coverage in the U.K. of the men’s and women’s singles finals and daily 90-minute highlights shows for the duration of tournament.

Eurosport’s tennis host Rob Curling will front the nightly highlights program from the All England Club from 10 p.m. every day of the tournament.

The deal makes Eurosport the only channel in the U.K. to show live coverage of all four of the sport’s major singles prizes.

Earlier this year, Eurosport achieved its best-ever ratings with its exclusive live coverage of the Australian Open Men’s Final peaking at 1.1 million viewers. The Wimbledon Championships will be broadcast between Eurosport’s coverage of Roland-Garros, which concluded earlier this month with singles victories for Novak Djokovic and Garbine Muguruza, and the upcoming coverage of the U.S. Open starting Aug. 29.

Susanna Dinnage, exec VP and M.D., Discovery Networks U.K. and Ireland, said: “It is fantastic to offer fans the chance to watch one of the most iconic events in British sport on Eurosport for the first time. Adding the Wimbledon rights means we now have live coverage of all four top tournaments and cements our position as the home of grand slam tennis in the U.K.”

In addition to the four Glam Slams, Eurosport broadcasts the Davis Cup, known as the World Cup of Tennis, and the five British grass-court tournaments that take place in the lead up to Wimbledon.

The BBC will continue to broadcast continuous daily live coverage of the championships in the U.K. across BBC1, BBC2 and online, and remains the AELTC’s primary U.K. broadcast partner for the 2016-2020 term.
