Eurosport 1 and Eurosport 2 Italy not showing Winter Olympics (in spite of misleading ads) on Sky because Sky and Discovery have not agreed a deal.. here we go again

We're all losing out, and Sky is particularly to blame

ES1 and ES2 on Sky are now the Russian versions, which do not air Olympics; meanwhile, ES1 and ES2 on Mediaset Premium air them..

It's a shameful situation, that could only happen in a shameful market such as the Italian one.. many many are angry with Sky for misleading ads, heck, even yesterday ads for the Olympics were aired on Sky

It's really a new low for Sky.. their arrogance knows no boundaries, particularly because they do not want to pay extra money

I knew it. Discovery Kids got switched back to the Indian feed.
It's very bad decision to switch back to Indian Feed. Better to put the Asian Feed beside the Indian one just like BBC Earth and Sony BBC Earth.

Anyway, MBC Pro Sports has ceased broadcasting and be replaced with SPL (Saudi Premier League)
Later on, MBC ProSports were back, but Pro Sports 4 became SPL.

I think we also have to take country rights into account. These feed changes are usually temporary. When I asked about AXN Asia they said only Indian one was permitted.

The Indian BBC Earth in the beginning was intended to replace the shutdown BBC Entertainment, but it seems like now they are keeping both feeds. Maybe because the Indian one is operated by Sony India. Also, for the past two weeks Discovery Science was running the Australian feed which is not HD and is on same satellite as the Asian one. It got switched back to the Asian one also today.
