Vodafone Portugal extends its range of channels with the launch of the new Eurosport 2 Xtra channel. Entirely devoted to motor sports, Eurosport 2 Xtra will broadcast, live and exclusively, all the F1 world championship events, including training sessions, qualifying heats and official races. It will also broadcast other major motor sports events such as GP2/GP3, WTCC, Superbike, Dakar and 24 hours of Le Mans.

In addition to the live broadcasts of Formula 1 and other motorsports, Eurosport 2 Xtra will shortly offer a range of additional services that promise to improve the customer experience of Vodafone TV, such as:

  • Multi-camera service, which will provide exclusive images of the F1 world championship captured from different perspectives, such as the insides of cockpits and the pits, and exclusive content from other relevant sporting events.
  • Free access to the Eurosport Player service.

Eurosport 2 Xtra will be available starting tomorrow, 11 May, for a premium monthly subscription at a promotional price of €4.99 a month, in positions 41 (HD version) and 42 (SD version) on the Vodafone TV channel grid.

This launch reinforces Vodafone’s strategy to offer its customers the best television experience as well as a diverse range of quality, internationally acclaimed content.
