Sport1 is a European sports channel which is currently available in Hungary, Czech Republic and Slovakia broadcasting in different languages. It currently holds the TV rights to broadcast NFL games in Hungary, Czech Republic, Slovakia and Moldova.


In Romania Sport1 was available from 2006 until 5 November 2014. The station holded the rights for NFL, NHL, Ice Hockey World Championship and Heineken Cup, and in the first years for various football national championship, from Scotland, Hungary, France, Netherlands and others.

In 2012, Sport1 Romania shrank its broadcast space only between 10 P.M. and 7 A.M. except for some big events that start earlier, like the NFL playoffs or if the NFL or NHL games go for longer than 7 A.M., after the launch of children's channel Megamax on the same frequence.

From the NFL, Sport1 broadcast a late afternoon game and Monday Night Football, every week, half of the Thursday Night Football games, the opening game and all the Thanksgiving Day games. Starting with the 2013 season, sometimes an early afternoon game and/or Sunday Night Football were added to the schedule. The NFL Playoffs were shown with no exception, including the Pro Bowl and the Super Bowl.

All the games were called by Cosmin Petrescu, Emil Hossu-Longin, Robert Cristea and Alex Năstase. The four commentators were highly appreciated for their style, especially for a game that was very little known in Romania before Sport1 started to broadcast, back in 2006.

Czech Republic

In Czech Republic holds the exclusive rights for KHL.
