DAZN, the OTT service operated by digital sports media company Perform, is set to acquire live coverage of Uefa Champions League football matches in Germany alongside pay-television broadcaster Sky, according to reports.
Sky will be the primary rights-holder, with DAZN picking up a smaller package of rights, according to German magazine Kicker and the Bloomberg news agency.
The rights will run for three seasons, from 2018-19 to 2020-21.
The rights that are set to be awarded to DAZN were previously held by national broadcasters in Germany, the reports added.
DAZN’s rights deal could be worth about €600m ($670m), according to Bloomberg.
In the current rights cycle in Germany for the Champions League, public-service broadcaster ZDF has free-to-air rights, while Sky has pay-television rights.
