ARD and ZDF extend rights to German skiing events

The German Ski Federation (DSV) has renewed a rights deal with SportA, the sports-rights agency that represents German public-service broadcasters ARD and ZDF.

The extension will run for four seasons, from 2016-17 to 2019-20.

The agreement comprises television, online and digital rights.

Both broadcasters set to continue to show all DSV-operated events in alpine skiing, ski jumping, cross-country skiing, Nordic combined, freestyle, ski cross and snowboarding.
