BT Sport has secured the rights to German Bundesliga football until 2017.
The new two-year contract, which starts in September 2015, means that BT Sport will show around 115 live matches a season from the Bundesliga, about 15 more matches than the current deal.
BT Sport will also have the rights to the annual DFL Supercup matches plus previews and highlights shows.
BT Sport already holds the current rights to show the Bundesliga exclusively live in the UK. For the remainder of the current season and next season, the channels will continue to show around 100 live matches, plus action from the DFL Supercup and preview and highlights shows.
Simon Green, head of BT Sport, said: “We are really thrilled that we will continue to be the home of Bundesliga for the next three seasons until 2017.”
