SNTV, the world’s number one sports video news agency, has confirmed a landmark deal with Eurosport, Europe’s leading sports media group. The three-year agreement will see SNTV supply both digital and television broadcast content for Eurosport’s international channels.

The deal will see sntv provide Eurosport with material for its daily sports news bulletins and regular magazine shows. sntv leads the sports video news market on planned coverage of forthcoming major international events, including the Sochi Winter Olympics and the FIFA World Cup, as well as regionally popular sports which appeal to Eurosport’s unrivalled Pan-European audiences.

The agreement also includes sntv digital content for online platforms, delivered to meet Eurosport’s extensive digital portfolio of websites and apps. sntv provides its clients with well over 6,000 digital video clips per year.

sntv’s high definition offering will further strengthen Eurosport’s depth of coverage on both its Eurosport and Eurosport 2 channels. sntv’s delivery of premium video content will feature prominently on the Eurosportnews channel, broadcast in nearly 50 countries across Africa, Asia, Europe and the Middle East.
