Sky Clinches UEFA Champions League for Germany, Austria


Sky Deutschland has secured the exclusive broadcast rights for the UEFA Champions League in Germany, with the Perform Group as sub-licensee.

Under the pact, Sky Deutschland will air the 2018-19 season through 2020-21 across satellite, cable, IPTV, web and mobile platforms.

Carsten Schmidt, CEO of Sky Deutschland, said: “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.

“With the Bundesliga, the EHF Champions League, Formula 1, ATP Tennis, European and U.S. 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 favorites such as season seven of Game of Thrones, a growing slate of Sky original drama, including the award-winning Babylon Berlin coming later this year.”
