The first channel with the name Viasat Sport was launched in May 1999 throughout the whole of Scandinavia. Since January 2002, the channel began to be divided into its own versions for individual countries in the region. Later, the channels were reprogrammed and divided into sports. Today there are Viasat Fotboll channels (in Sweden and Norway), Viasat Motor (in Sweden, Norway, Finland, the Baltic countries), Viasat Hockey (in Sweden, Finland, Norway), Viasat Golf (in Sweden, Norway, Finland, Estonia , Latvia, Lithuania, Russia and the CIS countries since October 2013 [1]).
Viasat Sport (East) was launched in Russia in November 2006. From the moment the channel was founded until July 31, 2013, most of the airtime was relayed by the NASN channel programs (later ESPN America) [2]. Since August 1, 2013, the channel has been broadcasting sporting events previously shown on ESPN America, under an agreement with ESPN.
In 2008, it was recognized as one of the fastest growing sports television channels [3].
Until the 2010-2011 season, the channel showed matches of the NHL championship. Due to a change in the structure of selling rights to the NHL in Europe in October 2011, NHL broadcasts ceased.
From December 2012, Viasat Sport began broadcasting the NBA Championship [4].
In October 2013, the channel will switch to television high definition [1].
