Mediaset and Sky Italia strike deal on football rights

Mediaset and Sky Italia are to offer comprehensive Champions League and Europa League football coverage to their pay TV subscribers following a deal over the exchange of rights acquired separately from UEFA.

Following the deal, both operators will be able to offer coverage of the matches of Italian teams in the two championships for the next two seasons.

Mediaset will also be able to offer the best Italian Champions League match from Wednesday nights and the best Europa League match on Thursday via its free-to-air channel Italia 1.

Sky Italia will provide coverage of both Champions League and Europa League matches in HD, with Champions League games shown exclusively on Sky in HD. The operator will also make Champions League games available on its Sky Go service, and in 3D on its TV service.
