In 2000, Eurosport continued to develop its channel offering with the launch of ‘Eurosportnews’. The dedicated all-sports news channel featured live scores, breaking news, insightful commentary and combined text, video and graphics onscreen to bring to life all the breaking stories in the world of sport. The schedule format was simple with each hour broken into four quarter-hour segments featuring 10 minutes of information, one or two minutes of advertising and three to four minutes of features. The familiar format continues to set the benchmark for sporting news today and is followed and replicated by most international sport news broadcasters.
