Subject: Eurosport wins Olympic TV rights for Europe

Written By: Philip Eno on 06/29/15 at 8:25 am

The European television rights for the Olympic Games have been awarded to Eurosport and its parent channel in a 1.3bn euros (£922m) deal.

It means the BBC could lose coverage of the Games in the UK from 2022, although Eurosport's parent company Discovery may lease back some of the rights.

The European rights are currently split up, country by country.

The deal will be effective for most of Europe from 2018, and in France and the UK from 2022.
