With the highs, the lows, the victories, the losses, the shocks and the controversies of sport, it’s important to have a reliable place to watch matches, and in real-time too. That’s where Eurosport comes in.


Eurosport is an international television sports network owned by Warner Bros Discovery. Its channels are available in an impressive 54 countries and in 20 different languages, providing all users with European and international sporting events, such as the Australian Open, the Welsh Open, Tour de La Provence, and the Olympic Games.

We’re here to tell you how to watch Eurosport on your TV, smartphone and laptop, how to get it for the best possible price, and just exactly what sport you can watch on the network.

What is Eurosport?

Eurosport is a sports channel (sorry for stating the obvious) which is home to a wide range of sporting events. It likes to focus on tennis and cycling whilst also being host to motorsport, athletics and more niche sports such as snooker. Football is the one sport that Eurosport doesn't often air.

Eurosport has two TV channels, Eurosport 1 and 2, which come free with several TV packages. Eurosport used to have a streaming service, Eurosport Player, which has now been incorporated into Discovery Plus' Entertainment & Sports subscription.
