Cristina Zanchi, Chief Consumer Officer of Orange Belgium, explains: "Almost 70% of Belgian consumers show interest in sports on TV, but only about 14% are ready to pay for it. This is the reason why we not only decided to renew our contract with Eleven Sports, but also to extend it to mobile TV. At Orange, we are very proud to keep offering more premium TV content, completely free of charge, to our Love subscribers and we are committed not to increase the price of our bundle.” 

“Eleven Sports wants to bring its exclusive sports content to as many fans as possible, no matter the platform they are on. Therefore we’re excited that all Orange Love customers will now have access to Eleven Sports both at home and on the go,” says Anouk Mertens, Managing Director, Belgium, Eleven Sports.

Today Orange is still the only telecom operator in Belgium offering Eleven Sports; and thus the best of international sports competitions; without customers having to pay extra.
