Sportitalia is an Italian satellite and
DTTTV Channel specialized in sport transmission 24 hours a day. Sports broadcast include soccer, basketball, tennis, cycling, volley, motoristic sports, rugby, wrestling; informations about other sports (winter sports, boxe, golf, surf, skate, swimming, boating, canoe/Kayak, American football, baseball and cricket) is also provided.
The channel's origins stem after the decision of the "Autorità garante della concorrenza e del mercato", an Italian organism that checks positions of privileges at favour of a firm, to subordinate the creation of
Sky Italiato the transfer of the frequencies of the two analogue codified channels possessed by Tele+, Tele+Biancoand Tele+Nero.
Tarak Ben Ammarbought the frequencies in collaboration with the satellite channel Eurosport. The frequencies became of property at 51% of the Holland Coordinator and Service Bv, Tarak Ben Ammar's firm, and at 49% of the TF1 Group, principal commercial French TV channel, which also owns Eurosport. Subsequently, in 2004 Tarak Ben Ammar successfully lobbied the then Italian Communications Minister Maurizio Gasparrifor a decree allowing him to convert the concessions from crypted TV to free TV: here, then, Sportitalia.
Seen the excellent share of the first 18 months of the channel, other two DTT channels were created: Si Live 24, an all sports news channels 24 hours a day, and Si Solo Calcio, an all soccer channel (both channels transmits some matches of "
Serie B", the Italian Second Division, in exclusive, free with the DTT technology); now, Si Live 24 become Sportitalia 24, and Si Solo Calcio ended its transmissions.
6 January 2006Sportitalia entered in SKY Italiaplatform and from 16 May 2006stopped the analogue transmissions.
