Sky Deutschland extends Wimbledon rights to 2018

Sky Deutschland has extended its Wimbledon tennis rights through to 2018, taking exclusive broadcasting rights for TV, internet, IPTV, and mobile in Germany and Austria.

The five-year extension was agreed with IMG Media on behalf of the All England Lawn Tennis Club. Sky Deutschland said that in 2014, as in previous years, it will broadcast the tournament on multiple  channels and cover the action on several courts at the same time – live and in HD.

“With its unique mix of tradition and world class athleticism, the tournament in Wimbledon is one of the highlights of every sports year. The continuation of our successful partnership over the next five years is proof of our editorial work and a major component of Sky’s strategy to offer customers exclusive programming,” said Burkhard Weber, Sky Deutschland’s senior vice president, sports.
