The Setanta Sports Pack is now the eir Sport Pack, offering six channels of the best live sporting content from Ireland and around the world.
The channels that make up the eir Sport Pack are eir Sport 1 and eir Sport 2; BT Sport 1, BT Sport 2, BT Sport Europe and BT Sport ESPN.
Following the acquisition of Setanta Sports Channel Ireland Ltd, the eir Sport Pack will continue to broadcast top sporting content, including Premier League Football, FA Cup, Champions League, Europa League, top flight European football from Germany, Italy and France, League of Ireland, European Rugby Champions Cup, Aviva Premiership Rugby, UFC, Formula One, Allianz Leagues GAA and much more.
In addition to its existing content, eir Sport has also secured the Irish broadcasting rights for the 2019 Rugby World Cup in Japan, the annual U-20’s Championship from 2017 until 2019 and the Rugby Sevens World Cup in 2018, while eir Sport will show more live coverage of the 2016 Paralympics than any other Irish broadcaster.
In a separate move rewarding customers, the eir Sport Pack is now free to all existing and new eir broadband customers. Customers can access this content via their TV platform or the device of their choice. This equates to €300 of value free to every eir broadband customer.
Unveiling eir Sport at the launch today, Managing Director of eir’s Consumer division, Jon Florsheim, said, “eir Sport is the new name in Irish broadcasting. Last year we introduced a fresh and modern identity to signal our ambition and evolution. Today is the most tangible proof point yet of our transformation as we become a broadcaster, supplying an amazing range of live sport to customers throughout Ireland.
“We continue to offer our customers great value. Now we are giving premium sports content to all 370,000 of our broadband customers. Not only does this provide customers with quality content, we are letting customers choose how they want to watch that content either at home on the tv or on the go via the eir Sport app."
