Hope of Champions League in Free TV dashed
The pay-TV broadcaster denies reports that it plans to broadcast some games on free TV in the future. Prior to that, the broadcaster had shown Bundesliga matches on free TV. Sky will not be showing any Champions League matches on its free-to-air channel Sky Sport News in the new rights period from 2018 onwards. It is not true that Sky wants to show some of the Champions League’s games on free TV,”the station said in a statement. Sky Sport News HD had shown two matches of the Bundesliga live and free on TV during the past season, the Champions League will be shown exclusively on Pay-TV at Sky and DAZN from the season 2018/19 to 2020/21. This is the first time in the history of the royal class that all games in Germany and Austria will be broadcast exclusively on pay-TV or as a streaming offer.
