StarTimes Confirms Bundesliga Deal

10 Jun 2015

StarTimes, the Pan-African pay-television broadcaster has confirmed that the network has secured a long-term rights deal to show Bundesliga matches.

The initial agreement was first reported on in March, but the official ceremony confirming the rights was signed yesterday at an industry conference in China.

The newly confirmed deal will run for five years, starting with the new 2015/16 season, instead of the two seasons originally reported.

The rights will be exclusive to sub-Saharan Africa, and allow the channel to preview and review games as well as show the live coverage of matches.
