Sky Deutschland extends Premier League deal

Pay TV operator Sky Deutschland has extended its multi-year exclusive agreement with the Premier League, allowing it to continue its coverage of top-flight English football.

The deal, which was closed for undisclosed terms, covers live broadcasts – with Sky Deutschland typically showing three games each matchday – as well as a highlight magazine show.

Sky also secured exclusive online and mobile rights for Germany and Austria, making the English Premier League available on Sky Go via iOS devices, web browsers and Xbox 360 games consoles. As before, viewers will be able to access highlight clips on Sky’s Mediathek site.

Last week Sky Deutschland secured the broadcasting rights to three major international golf championships – US Open, The Open and the PGA Championships – until 2015, adding to its existing deal for the US Masters tournament. It also recently secured rights to show the US PGA Tour until 2015 and the European Tour and Ryder Cup until 2014.
