“We are delighted that we have been able to extend our relationship with eir Vision to include both Eurosport channels and our new entertainment channel Quest Red. Sport fans now have access to a wide range of events from cycling, tennis, superbikes to the Olympics Games – and Quest Red invites TV fans to escape into a world of thought provoking real life stories,” said Susanna Dinnage, Managing Director, Discovery Networks UK and Ireland.

“This is a great moment for viewers who will have more choice and flexibility than ever before.”

Glen Killane, MD of eir TV and Sport, said: “We are excited that we can now offer the full suite of channels on offer from the Discovery network to our customers.
