The contract on the purchase of the rights for the broadcasting was made between Discovery Communications mass media company and National Public Broadcasting Company of Ukraine (UA: PBC).
‘UA: PBC made the sub-licensing contract with Discovery Communications mass media company that includes Eurosport TV channel to purchase the rights for the broadcasting of 2018 Winter Olympics and 2020 Summer Olympics in Ukraine’, the message said.
Also, it is reported that the winter and summer Olympics will be broadcasted in SD and HD-Simulcast at the UA: First TV channel.
The broadcasting of the 2018 Winter Olympics and 2020 Summer Olympics was in question in Ukraine as the UA: PBC claimed in September 2017 that there are no funds for the purchase of the rights for the broadcasting and sending of the camera crew.
Later the UA: PBC also claimed that the money that remained after the holding of the Eurovision in Kyiv will be spent for the engineering costs, purchase of the equipment, business trips to Pyeongchang and creation of studio topical special projects.
