BERLIN (AP) — American retail giant Amazon has secured rights to stream Champions League games in Germany from the 2021-22 season, while current broadcaster Sky has been left empty handed.
Amazon Prime Video will show Tuesday games from Europe’s premier soccer competition.
“We are excited to show our customers the top games on Tuesday from 2021,” Alex Green, the managing director of Amazon Prime Video Europe, said in a statement.
Amazon already held the audio rights for Bundesliga games, but this will be the first time it shows lives games in Germany.
The Champions League is being shown by Sky and streaming service DAZN. Customers have to pay for both. But Sky has missed out on the rights from 2021.
