Sky Deutschland retains golf rights

Pay-television broadcaster Sky Deutschland has retained rights in Germany and Austria for events organised by the US PGA Tour.

The deal will run for three years, from 2013 until the end of 2015.

The rights cover television, online, IPTV and mobile platforms.

Under the deal, live coverage and highlights of a total of 40 events over the three years will be shown.

“The extension of the rights to the US PGA Tour means that Sky will remain the number-one golf broadcaster for years to come,” Burkhard Weber, Sky Deutschland’s senior vice-president of sports, said.
