Greek Uefa competition rights to switch from Nova to OTE

Greek pay-television broadcaster OTE has acquired the rights to the Uefa Champions League and Europa League club football competitions.

OTE has signed a three-year deal, spanning the 2015-16 to 2017-18 seasons, with the Team Marketing agency, the rights distribution partner of football’s European governing body.

OTE will succeed rival pay-television broadcaster Nova as the rights-holder to the two competitions in the Greek market.

In October 2011, Nova held off competition from OTE to acquire the rights from the 2012-13 campaign through to the end of the current 2014-15 season.
