Deutsche Telekom has secured the Bundesliga games for its Entertain IPTV customers following a deal with Sky Deutschland.

Following months of negotiations Entertain customers will have access to the full bouquet of Sky channels starting in the summer of 2013. This includes Sky Fußball Bundesliga and Sky Sport, and covers apart from the Bundesliga games also the Champions League, the Europa League and DFB Pokal.

Telekom customers can sign up for the Sky packages from this summer onwards, while current Liga Total customers will have automatic access to the live games of the 2013/14 season. At the end of their current subscription, these viewers will be offered the new Sky options.

The deal also brings all Sky channels to Entertain IPTV including Sky Welt and Sky Film.
