Viewers using the services of A1 provider in Croatia will no longer be able to watch United Media channels N1 and Sport Klub from March 29, as the companies have not reached an agreement on continued cooperation.
We were very surprised by A1’s decision to not extend the contract on channel distribution, especially keeping in mind that they were offered the exact same conditions as before.
We have cooperated with them for many years and we are saddened to hear that this cooperation will not continue, in spite of goodwill on our side.
Starting at the end of March, users of the provider will not be able to access the most important news of the day on the leading news channel N1, nor will they be able to watch top-quality sports content on Sport Klub, including Formula 1 races which are set to begin soon, and are broadcasted in Croatia on Sport Klub.
N1 TV, an exclusive partner of CNN, reports on the most important news of the day in real-time. Their professional team has for years prepared renowned talk show and political programmes, spoken to relevant players, analysed situations, and offered to their viewers timely, accurate, and objective information.
Sport Klub has over the years become synonymous with the best sports TV channel. On top of Formula 1 races, a novelty in Croatia, their programme also includes German Bundesliga and Bundesliga 2. Standard offer also includes Premier League and FA Cup, and Sport Klub viewers can also watch MOTO GP races, EuroLeague and EuroCup, ATP tournaments and Wimbledon, as well as the NFL.
A1 users will also no longer be able to watch channels for children, Pikaboo and Vavoom.
All United Media channels remain available via Croatian Telekom and Total TV.
Operating in Croatia as part of United Group are the telecom operator Telemach Hrvatska, as well as channels and portals Sport Klub and N1, Nova TV, Doma TV, and dnevnik.hr.
