Germany's third-largest cable operator Kabel BW will add further HD channels from pay-TV broadcaster Sky Deutschland to its cable network.

Cable households in federal state Baden-Württemberg will in future be able to receive sports channel Sky Sport HD Extra which screens live football games of the Bundesliga and Champions League as well as sports news channel Sky Sport News HD which will launch in winter 2011.

At the same time, Kabel BW and Sky have agreed to expand their sales partnership: From August 2011, Kabel BW customers will be able to subscribe to all Sky packages as stand-alone products directly from the cable operator.

The triple play collaboration, which has been running since July 2010, will continue in parallel: Kabel BW thereby bundles its telephony and internet products with Sky subscriptions
