Discovery Communications and BAMTech have announced a long-term partnership, including the formation of BAMTech Europe, a new digital technology provider, dedicated to working with content owners, broadcasters and OTT platforms to enhance their digital capabilities, reach and performance across Europe. As part of the partnership, Eurosport Digital will become the new entity's first client, and gain access to select European sports rights from worldwide sports properties, including current and future rights acquired by BAMTech and jointly by Eurosport and BAMTech. BAMTech Europe will be formed through a joint venture between Discovery Communications and BAMTech LLC. This new venture will represent BAMTech's expansion in Europe and will provide world-class digital technology services to a broad set of sports, news and entertainment clients in Europe. BAMTech has successfully designed, developed and delivered direct-to-consumer streaming services over the past 14 years, currently serving 7.5 million total global paid subscribers with its U.S.-based clients' OTT products. With hundreds of millions of mobile data subscribers and growing OTT momentum via connected TVs and other devices, Europe provides a significant strategic opportunity to bring together BAMTech's world-class technology and Discovery's deep presence and relationships across the continent. Eurosport Digital is the first partner for BAMTech Europe through a long-term digital services agreement. BAMTech's back-end video platform and services will be implemented in 2017 across all of Eurosport Digital's products, which include Eurosport.com the continent's number one sports news website, and Eurosport Player the leading subscription-based OTT sports platform across Europe giving fans an all-access pass anytime and on any device in 52 countries. In addition, Eurosport and BAMTech will work together to make premium sports events more widely available across multiple screens. This will include current and future rights acquired by BAMTech as well as joint acquisitions for other compelling European sports rights, from across the globe, for Eurosport's digital platform.
