So you can see the games of the German teams
| Reading time: 2 minutes
It takes some planning if you want to watch the games of the German teams in the Champions League live. TV viewers need two pay TV subscriptions. For Sky it is the last season in the premier class.
WITHFor the last time, Sky is on the ball in the Champions League this season. After the start of the season, the three-year media contract of the pay-TV broadcaster, which shares the premier football league with the streaming service DAZN, which also has to be paid for, ends.
Like every matchday, the games are distributed across both channels this week. Sky shows Bayern Munich against Atlético Madrid today. The streaming service DAZN broadcasts all other matches live, * including Inter Milan against Borussia Mönchengladbach.
Sky and DAZN have agreed on a complicated distribution key that will now apply for the third and last time. The pay-TV broadcaster relies primarily on games from Bayern Munich and the attractiveness of the conferences that are popular with customers. The streaming service, which can only be received on the Internet, on the other hand, shows significantly more games live, according to its own information it is 110 in total.
Both providers will each show twelve individual games with German participation. Nine times, Sky was allowed to choose an encounter and shows, among other things, five games by the German champions FC Bayern Munich and four by Borussia Dortmund. DAZN can only show Bavaria once, on October 27th against Lokomotiv Moscow. Borussia Mönchengladbach fans, on the other hand, get their money’s worth with five games. At Sky, excerpts from all games will be broadcast during the conference.
Europa League also on free TV
DAZN will be the largest Champions League provider on the German market from 2021/22, while Sky no longer has a contract with Uefa. According to its own information, DAZN shows 121 of 137 premier class games live, including most of the German games and the conferences. The three finals will also run on free TV at ZDF until 2024. In addition, the US Internet giant Amazon shows the top game on Tuesday evening via its paid streaming service Prime Video. The live package includes a total of 16 games.
In contrast to the Champions League, there are moving pictures of the small European Cup on free-to-air television. The RTL group shows one game every match day – six games in the group stage at Nitro. This Thursday the niche broadcaster will broadcast the home game of TSG 1899 Hoffenheim against FK Red Star Belgrade. The streaming service DAZN will broadcast all Europa League games for its subscribers.
*Display: Every viewer has the opportunity to watch the game live on the DAZN streaming service (11.99 euros per month). If you don’t have a subscription, you can watch the game for free. DAZN offers all new customers the opportunity to test the offer for one month free of charge. You can cancel the subscription within the first month.
