Digiturk is a Turkish satellite television provider founded in 1999, with services starting in mid-2000. They offer both national cable television channels and their own channels, national radio, and music streams of different genres. Digiturk is also the current owner of the broadcasting rights of Turkish Super League. In addition to Turkey, Digiturk offers its television service throughout Europe, mainly for members of the Turkish diaspora. Reportedly, they have over 3.5 million subscribers worldwide.[1] Digiturk's service is provided from Eutelsat W3A, positioned some 35 degrees west of the more traditionally used Türksat, and is encrypted via Cryptoworks and Irdeto conditional access systems.

Digiturk relays 38 national channels, 22 news channels, 23 film and series channels, 20 sport channels, 14 children channels, 12 music channels, 15 documentary channels, 9 entertainment and life style channels and 65 other international channels.

The Qatar-based beIN Media Group acquired Digiturk on July 13, 2015.

In October 2015, Digiturk removed several channels which include Samanyolu TV, Samanyolu Haber TV, Bugun TV, Yumurcak TV (a children's channel), and Irmak TV.

In 13 January 2017, Digiturk rebranded its in-house channels (DiziMax, MovieMax and Lig TV) under the beIN brand (beIN Series, beIN Movies and beIN Sports).[2]
