Sky Deutschland extend Champions League rights

Sky Deutschland has secured the extension of broadcasting rights for the UEFA Champions League in Germany for the seasons 2015/16 through 2017/18, and will show 146 matches live per season, 128 of them exclusively, from the p lay-offs to the final including the UEFA Super Cup. Sky customers will be able to experience every match and every goal across all platforms live and in HD, with the choice of either individual matches or the original Sky Conference.

With the new agreement, Sky remains the only place where football fans can see all the best players in Europe and all the outstanding moments of the UEFA Champions League live. New services such as the Sky HD Fan Zone, the German Conference, and technical innovations such as the 4K Super-Zoom camera will continue to evolve over the coming years, ensuring that broadcasts will not just offer all the live match action, but also the continued innovation that Sky viewers have come to expect.

“The UEFA Champions League is a source of great drama and incredible stories,” says Carsten Schmidt, Chief Officer Sports, Advertising Sales & Internet at Sky. “Memories of the final in Munich in 2012 and the German-German final in Wembley in 2013 continue to resonate with the football fans for months and years after the match. As the official TV partner in Germany, we are thrilled to continue sharing these stories on Sky.”
