Discovery signs partnership with streaming service BAMTech

Eurosport Digital, Eurosport’s website and subscription based streaming platform, will be the initial client of the joint venture, called BAMTech Europe. Discovery acquired full ownership of Eurosport last year. […] BAMTech, which was spun off from MLB Advanced Media, has a significant footprint in the United States, serving 7.5 million paid subscribers with its U.S.-based clients’ so-called over-the-top (OTT) streaming services, including the NHL and Time Warner Inc’s HBO. – Tim Baysinger, Reuters http://reut.rs/2fBJBC3
