Eurosport is a French group of television networks. It is in Europe and parts of Asia. It is owned by Warner Bros. Discovery. They have two main channels—Eurosport 1 and Eurosport 2. They also stream on Discovery+.

Eurosport was created by European Broadcasting Union and Sky in 1989. It was briefly shut down in 1991 following complaints by Screensport. It was bought by TF1 Group, and later merged with Screensport. For a period, it was held between TF1, Canal+ Group, and Havas Images. TF1 Group later took over. In 2012, Discovery Communications began to take an ownership in Eurosport, eventually leading towards a full buyout in 2015.

Eurosport is the main channel of the Olympic Games in most of Europe, as well as the tennis Grand Slam tournaments. It is available in 54 countries, in 20 different languages. Eurosport had 157 million subscribers in 2019, marking no increase from the previous year. The Eurosport 2 channel had an audience of 87 million viewers in 2019.[1]
