Sky Deutschland to allow Bayern match to air for free on Sat1 in Germany

Craig Hanson 3 months ago

The pay-tv giant has reached a sub-licensing agreement with the free-to-air provider for November 8 clash

Broadcasting behemoth Sky Deutschland has reached a sub-licensing agreement with Seven One Entertainment, which will see the match between Bundesliga champions Bayern Munich and Werder Bremen from the Allianz Arena shown live on free public television in the country.

The German top flight clash will air simultaneously on Seven One's free-to-air network Sat1, and on Sky Deutschland, on November 8 as Bayern look to move closer to the top of the Bundesliga.

Sky Deutschland owns the rights to 200 live Bundesliga games a season as part of a four year deal with the German Football Federation (DFB) which runs until the end of the 2024/25 campaign.

In exchange for allowing the match to be shown on Sat1's free channel, Sky will promote its services and products to consumers throughout the broadcast.

Senior Vice President of Sports Rights & Commercialization at Sky Deutschland, Hans Gabbe, said of the deal:

“Through the agreement with Seven One Entertainment, we are making the great Sky Bundesliga product and our high-quality editorial reporting available to the general public. With this we are advertising on our own behalf and for German football in general.”

This should prove a nice treat for German based football fans without the means to afford a Sky subscription. They will now be able to watch one of the best teams in the world in Bayern Munich play a fully fledged Bundesliga fixture live on their screens without spending a penny.
