Sky renews Champions League rights in Austria

Pay-television broadcaster Sky Deutschland has extended a rights deal in Austria for the Uefa Champions League club football competition.

The agreement will run for three years, from 2015-16 to 2017-18.

Sky Deutschland will show a total of 146 matches per season, including 128 on an exclusive basis. The deal includes live coverage of the Uefa Super Cup game between the winners of the previous season’s Champions League and Europa League.

The deal, which was brokered on behalf of Uefa by the Team Marketing agency, covers all media platforms.

Earlier this month Sky Deutschland extended a rights deal in Germany for the Champions League while Austrian public-service broadcaster ORF renewed free-to-air rights for the competition, with both deals covering the same three-year period.
