Polsat and ITI awarded Champions League rights

European football body UEFA has awarded Champions League broadcast rights in Poland to Polsat and ITI for 2009-2012.

Free-to-air broadcaster Polsat will show the first choice live match, including the final and the UEFA Super Cup, on Wednesdays, as well as a Wednesday night highlights programme featuring coverage from the matches played on both Tuesdays and Wednesdays. The broadcaster will also show a weekly UEFA Champions League magazine programme featuring a round-up of news, features and action from each week of the competition. Should a Polish team play a match on a Tuesday, it will also be available free-to-air on Polsat.

Pay-TV operator ITI, meanwhile, has been awarded a package of rights for its N Sport channels. ITI will broadcast all matches either live or delayed. It will also screen a highlights programme on each night of the competition.  Both deals also cover mobile and internet rights.
