Wimbledon enters into an agreement with Warner Bros Discovery

Warner Bros Discovery has acquired non-exclusive live and highlights access towards both singles finals.

The Wimbledon Grand Slam tennis event has signed a fresh broadcasting agreement with Warner Bros Discovery to telecast the complete competition on its network in 11 European countries in 2022.

The countries comprised in the agreement are Sweden, Norway, Finland, Iceland, Belgium, the Netherlands, Romania, Hungary, the Czech Republic, Slovakia, and Bulgaria. The sports channel’s digital domains, as well as the Discovery+ streaming service, would provide coverage to these countries.

For its subsidiaries, Eurosport and Discovery+, in the UK and Ireland, Warner Bros Discovery has acquired non-exclusive live and highlights access towards both singles finals.

All singles matchups from the quarterfinal stage onwards would be televised by Warner Bros Discovery on its free-to-air (FTA) networks in Norway, Sweden, and Finland in conjunction with its pay-TV broadcasting on Eurosport. Discovery+ and the Eurosport streaming platform both have coverage of the qualifying round for Wimbledon, which began on June 20.

Scott Young, Senior Vice President of Content and Production at Warner Bros Discovery Sports, Europe, stated, “Our coverage of Grand Slam tennis is as innovative as the new generation of players who are coming through the ranks at the moment.

“Some of these exciting and up-and-coming players come from the countries where we will be presenting Wimbledon. Our philosophy when presenting tennis has taken us closer to the players and those around them. We will be bringing our unmatched tennis expertise and world-class production to the tournament this year to scale live and on-demand coverage to millions of fans.

“On top of this, we are looking forward to continuing our Grand Slam storytelling and will serve the best localized content to our audiences all over Europe via Eurosport.com as part of a 360-degree tennis experience.”
