ESPN Classic is to launch in the Turkish market following an agreement with the digital satellite platform Digiturk.

Digiturk will add an additional 1.1 million subscribers to ESPN Classic’s existing subscriber base of 18 million in 35 countries. The most recent country to be added is the UK following previous launches over the past 12 months in Denmark, Finland, Belgium, Poland, Portugal and Bulgaria.
