ONdigital - making history, showing history being made

8th March 1999

History has already been made in ONdigital's first two exclusively live and free sports events.

First ONdigital carried Iron Mike Tyson's comeback fight exclusively live and free of course. Second, last weekend, only ONdigital's customers were able to watch live and free Anil Kumble's astonishing feat of ten wickets in a Test match, the first time it had happened in 43 years, and only the second time in history.
