One World Lands CenturyLink Carriage

One World Sports said it has signed a multi-year, multi-platform carriage deal with CenturyLink for its Prism TV service, making more than 2,600 hours of the channel’s live sports programming available to subscribers to the IP-based service.

“CenturyLink provides a great opportunity for more viewers, across multiple states, to sample all of the exciting, live sports content that can only be found on ONE World Sports,” said One World’s executive vice president, distribution Randy Brown in a statement. “Prism TV customers with the new Prism Sports Plus package will be exposed to top talent from around the globe in soccer, cricket, basketball, hockey, rugby and so much more.”

One World recently added PRO Rugby and the IIHF Ice Hockey World Championships to its lineup for May. Cricket also returns to the network next month with the English Cricket National Board vs Sri Lanka and Pakistan. Soccer dominates in April and May with the start of the North American Soccer League featuring defending champions New York Cosmos and the network’s carriage of the European Soccer Channels – Arsenal FC, Barcelona FC, FC Bayern Munich, Chelsea FC and Juventus FC.
