Diema Extra[edit]

Diema Extra (Bulgarian: Диема Екстра) was a Bulgarian premium paid channel which launched in January 2005. It aired films and other series, as well as sports events mostly from the English and Spanish Football Leagues. Later, most of these programs were moved to the other Diema Vision channels, as few people signed up for the service, and advertising proved more profitable. In September 2007 Diema Extra was finally closed after Diema Vision was sold to Apace Media. In February 2015 Diema Extra was restored as a premium paid channel package, containing the channels Diema Sport and Trace Sports Stars HD, and Diema Sport 2 from August 2015.
