They have news of the sports streaming scene again and it is quite surprising. After Sky has ‘given’ the English Premier League to DAZN, it will run exclusively on Sky Germany again from 2019. A confusing tactic that Sky Deutschland uses when it comes to broadcasting rights. First you let the Premier League go because it wouldn’t be important to Sky anyway, then you get the broadcast rights back very surprisingly. Even exclusively, from the 2019/2020 season for a total of three seasons.
Anyone who values a smooth and less restricted streaming experience will regret the switch in the Premier League from DAZN to Sky. DAZN makes me personally so much happier, because streaming is more fun right now. But hey, we don’t want to give up Sky on this yet.
It includes exclusive rights to broadcast live via satellite and cable, as well as through IPTV, web and mobile. With the Sky Sport package, Sky subscribers can be there live anytime, anywhere when the ball is rolling in England stadiums, both on classic linear television and via streaming with Sky Go.
Also, football fans who do not yet have a Sky subscription can follow the Premier League live via the Sky Ticket streaming service even without a contract. The Premier League will also be available live at Sky Sports Bars and Sky Hotels.
Sky with a return to the sports market?
More recently, Sky Deutschland had lost numerous broadcast rights, Formula 1 was completely abandoned, the Bundesliga is no longer exclusively available, and only a small part of European football competitions can be seen on Sky. Are the wrong decisions being reversed now?
DAZN seems to be hurt by the loss: “Let’s make it short: the loss of the Premier League rights to @SkyDeutschland really hurts us. Let’s enjoy the season together. We will offer you a solid package of rights next season too! “
