CSI Sports Acquires Belgian Channel


LONDON: CSI Sports has acquired the Sport 10 channel in Belgium, which reaches 1.3 million subscribers on the Proximus platform.

The acquisition is part of a long-term strategy to expand CSI Sports’s international business. The company’s Fight Sports programming operates across Europe and the Asia-Pacific region with carriage in more than 30 countries.

Richard Miele and Craig Miele, CSI Sports’s co-CEOs, said: “Sport 10 is one of only three basic sports channels on the Proximus platform and has a valuable EPG position that provides great access to a significant audience for the purpose of growing our Belgium business.”

Proximus’s Stéphanie Rockmann, the director of content and media, said: “We are really pleased that CSI Sports has decided to invest in Belgium. We believe CSI Sports Group has the capacity to further develop Sport 10 and to offer a broader sports experience to ProximusTV subscribers.”
