Sky Deutschland scores Champions League rights
June 13, 2017
Sky has built on its content offering with a new agreement to broadcast exclusively, with the Perform Group as sub-licensee, the UEFA Champions League in Germany and Austria. Sky Deutschland will broadcast the 2018/19 season through to 2020/21 across satellite, cable, IPTV, web and mobile platforms.
“We are extremely pleased with this result which means that Sky remains the home of the UEFA Champions League in Germany and Austria for the next four years,” commented Carsten Schmidt, Chief Executive Officer at Sky Deutschland. “With the Bundesliga, the EHF Champions League, Formula 1, ATP Tennis, European and US PGA Tours, our customers are assured of the world’s best in sports. In addition to extending its leadership in sport, Sky has also successfully developed a broader content offering in Germany, including the launch of Sky 1, the Sky Arts channel and, sitting alongside favourites such as season 7 of Game of Thrones, a growing slate of Sky original drama including the award-winning Babylon Berlin coming later this year,” he added.
