Emirates is amplifying its inflight entertainment offering, adding a second dedicated sports channel to its ice TV Live on-board – now available on over 90 of its Boeing 777 aircraft.

Busy globe trotters and travelling sports fans can now enjoy more live sporting action than ever before.

Sports 24 Extra, the second dedicated sports channel, will complement the existing Sports 24 channel to offer double the live sports coverage on ice Digital Widescreen- Emirates’ award winning in-flight entertainment system.

Sports 24 Extra and Sports 24 will offer live matches and coverage of the much anticipated top sporting events this summer including UEFA Euro 2016, NBA, Formula 1, Wimbledon, US Open and Moto GP.


With two dedicated sports channels, sports fans on Emirates will not miss out on busy sporting weekends and will have the choice of selecting between coverage of two events.

The two channels will also provide live coverage of the Rio 2016 Olympics this August.

Fans will have the opportunity to watch the world’s largest sporting event and cheer for their national teams wherever they may be travelling to on Emirates’ global network of over 150 destinations.
