- Sport is an integral part of our society, so sport content is increasingly used on the telecom market as the main differentiator and argument for customer attraction. This is due to the fact, that there is a great demand for sport channels in Ukraine, which is not satisfied yet. One more sport channel in Volia packages - is a logical step towards our subscribers and their need in diversity and quality sport content – Anton Dziubenko, Volia CEO comments.

Setanta Sports is an exclusive owner of rights for broadcasting English Premier League matches in Ukraine for three seasons and will exclusively broadcast more than 230 Premier League matches during the season. The channel will also be the only broadcast of the Scottish Premier League and will show top clubs from Glasgow - Celtic and Rangers - in the struggle to win the championship.

In addition to the great football tv menu, Setanta sports program is full of exclusively broadcastings of Formula 1, UFC, NHL, NBA.

Martial arts fans will be able to see more than 40 UFC evenings a year, exclusively and live.  Setanta Sports broadcasts 24 hours a day.

- Setanta Sports are delighted to be launching on the Voila platform and look forward to bringing our extensive array of live sports with great commentary to Voila customers.  The Premier League is of considerable interest to Ukrainian football fans and feedback so far on the channel has been excellent.  We look forward to working with Voila in the coming months and years and bringing our content to the widest possible base, – Dwyer McCaughley, CEO Setanta Sports

Sport – is one of the key content theme in digital and interactive Volia packages. The leader of the Ukrainian digital entertainment market works hard to make content legal, quality and actual.
