ORF and Sky retain Austrian Bundesliga rights

Jörn Krieger | 10-12-2012

Public broadcaster ORF and pay-TV operator Sky Deutschland will continue to show matches from Austria's domestic football league Fußball-Bundesliga in the alpine republic.

The companies have secured the broadcasting rights from the 2013/14 season, and the contracts run for three years with the option of expanding by another two years. The rights holders will pay a total of €20.2 million per year for the rights instead of the current €17 million.
As is currently the case, Sky will show all games live on pay-TV while ORF will transmit 36 matches per season on free-to-air TV.
