UPC secures German football rights partnership with Sky Deutschland

UPC will have exclusive rights in Switzerland to matches broadcast by Sky. The coverage will be shown on the MySports channel, which will offer 266 top-tier Bundesliga matches and 306 second-tier 2.Bundesliga fixtures.

UPC replaces pay-television broadcaster Teleclub as Sky Deutschland’s Swiss partner.

Teleclub will hold rights to just 40 Bundesliga games next season through an agreement with Discovery Networks Deutschland. Teleclub will showcase matches broadcast by Discovery-owned Eurosport.

UPC said that a small number of its matches would be shown on the basic MySports HD channel, with the full offering to be accessible via the MySports Pro package.
