Teleclub & Discovery Tie Up for Bundesliga Rights


Teleclub and Discovery Networks Deutschland have expanded their long-term collaboration by adding exclusive broadcasting rights for Bundesliga in Switzerland and Liechtenstein.

All Bundesliga games for the 2017-18 season included in Eurosport’s specific rights package for Germany, Austria and Switzerland will be shown as part of the Teleclub platform offer only. Eurosport will air 40 live Bundesliga matches per season, including the regular Friday night prime time, selected Sunday afternoon and top Monday night matches, as well as the German Supercup, the four relegation matches and highlights from all games.

Willy Heinzelmann, the CEO of CT Cinetrade and Teleclub, stated: “With these exclusive rights, we are now able to round out our Bundesliga offer. We are excited to continue our collaboration with Discovery in this expanded form.”

Susanne Aigner-Drews, the senior VP and general manager for GSA at Discovery Networks Deutschland, added: “With the Bundesliga we acquired one of the top sports rights in the German-speaking TV market, and we want to guarantee the best and most extensive distribution of these highly charged games, delivering premium sports content to more people across more screens than ever before. This long-term extension of our partnership with Teleclub enables us to present high-class Bundesliga action to Swiss viewers.”
