Hrvatski Telekom always strives to provide its users with top-quality content and ensure the best user experience. Accordingly, MAX bundles become even richer with new programs and sports broadcasts.
During the next four seasons, Hrvatski Telekom has exclusive rights to broadcast the most viewed sports content in Croatia; Croatian Football League and Croatian Football Cup. Match broadcasts will take place on the newly founded MAXSport programs, which have been tested by users since July 1, and of which MAXSport 1 will broadcast most of the HNL matches, available already in the basic package of MAXtv. The football season opens on MAXSport with an exclusive broadcast of the Dinamo-Hajduk Supercup match this Saturday, July 9, at 8 p.m.
In addition to the live broadcast, the program will include special shows dealing with Croatian football. For example, a special 90-minute show dedicated to HNL is planned on Mondays. HT's desire is to expand the program to Croatian leagues and cups from other sports and MAXsport to be a real, content-rich Croatian sports channel over time.
The MAXSport1 program is already available in the basic bundle to all MAXtv users because we want to further popularize and facilitate the availability of Croatian football. At the same time, the MAXSport2 program will be available to MAXtv sports package users. The MAXSport2 program will contain live broadcasts at times when several parallel matches will be played, while the rest of the time it will show footage and summaries. Both MAXSport programs will also be available on the MAXtv satellite and with Iskon while for now only MAXSport1 will be broadcasted on evotv.
The most attractive sports and the football program will complement the football matches of the best and most interesting leagues and competitions: UEFA Champions League, UEFA Confederations League, Spanish La Liga, English Premiership, Italian Seria A, French Ligue 1, Portuguese Primeira, all of which will be broadcast on ArenaSport channels available on MAXtv.
"Hrvatski Telekom is closely linked with sports in many segments of its business. As a leading telecommunications company in Croatia, we always strive to provide the highest quality content to our users. As we are known in Croatia as passionate fans of sports, especially football, our task is to provide a top-notch experience through the most-watched sports content while supporting and promoting Croatian sports. I believe that with the MAXSport1 and MAXSport2 programs, we will satisfy and justify our viewers' trust", said Richard Brešković, director of the Residential Marketing Sector.
MAXtv users who, until now, had SportKlub programs 1 to 6, no longer part of MAXtv's offering, will receive in exchange from August 1 the more content-rich ArenaSport programs 7 to 10. This means that in addition to the continuation of the transmission of the English Premiership, which is broadcast from this season on ArenaSport, they will also get the UEFA Champions League.
All HNL matches on the MAXsport channel will be broadcast in the highest HD quality, given that HT has ensured the connection of the stadium with an optical infrastructure with gigabit links, which already fulfills the prerequisites for future broadcasts in 4k quality, which we can expect from time to time already in the new season.
