SNTV, the sports video news agency, today confirmed a landmark deal with Eurosport, Europe’s leading sports media group.

The three-year agreement will see SNTV supply both digital and television broadcast content for Eurosport’s international channels.

The deal will see SNTV provide Eurosport with material for its daily sports news bulletins and regular magazine shows. SNTV leads the sports video news market on planned coverage of forthcoming major international events, including the Sochi Winter Olympics and the FIFA World Cup, as well as regionally popular sports which appeal to Eurosport’s unrivalled Pan-European audiences.

The agreement also includes SNTV digital content for online platforms, delivered to meet Eurosport’s extensive digital portfolio of websites and apps. SNTV provides its clients with well over 6,000 digital video clips per year.
