Starting April 24, Shakhtar TV will be available to more than 600,000 VOLIA subscribers throughout Ukraine through digital television and OTT-TV technology in SD and HD quality, as well as in the VOLIA TV mobile application.
“The matches involving Shakhtar are of great interest to our audience,” pointed out Sandra Kraujina, VOLIA Chief Marketing Officer. “We are delighted by the fact that football fans have got another TV channel now, so we congratulate FC Shakhtar on the ambitious and necessary project of launching its club television channel.

Shakhtar TV has been streamed in test mode on the OLL.TV platform. The audience can watch Shakhtar’s archive of match videos featuring Champions League, Europa League (UEFA Cup), Ukrainian Championship and other competitions. Next season, the broadcast schedule will be filled with content of their own production.
“As a European club, we always strive to open up new opportunities for our fans. With the help of club television, they will receive high-quality and, most importantly, exclusive content.
