SKY SPORTS SNATCH BUNDESLIGA GAMES FROM BT SPORT
Top-flight German football matches are to transfer from BT Sport to Sky Sports.
Sky has sealed a four-year deal for the UK and Republic of Ireland rights to Bundesliga games, a contract previously held by BT. As part of the deal it will also screen the German Supercup.
The biggest matches will be shown on Sky Sports Football with other likely to be across the rest of Sky’s channels including the red button service and Sky Sports Mix (which is available to Sky TV subscribers who don’t have the sports channels). Some matches will also stream free-to-air on the Sky Sports YouTube channel.
Sky’s first game sees champions Bayern Munich travel to Borussia Monchengladbach on Friday August 13 at 7.30pm while Borussia Dortmund v Eintracht Frankfurt is the Saturday 5.30pm Sky match.
Bundesliga moving to Sky is the latest football contract to be lost by BT Sport. BT lost its share of Scottish Premiership action to Sky while ITV takes over BT Sport’s FA Cup rights this season.
BT had said it would only bid for rights it thought were essential to its service in the future and has sealed a deal to keep the Champions League, Europa League and new Europa Conference League for the next four seasons.
