ATV secures slice of Euro 2016 action in Austria

Austrian commercial broadcaster ATV has acquired a package of rights to games from the Uefa Euro 2016 national team football tournament under a sublicensing deal with public-service broadcaster ORF.

The agreement includes live rights to six games from the final round of matches of the group stage of the tournament, which takes place from June 10 to July 10 in France.

The games will take place from June 19-22 but will not include Austria’s final Group F fixture against Iceland at the Stade de France in Paris on June 22.

ORF secured rights to Euro 2016 under a deal struck in March 2015.
