Sky Deutschland will provide 18 locations of the hostel chain A&O in Germany with its pay-TV offering. The guests will be able to watch the channels free of charge.

In the hotel bar and lobby area, Sky's whole live sports coverage will be available, including the football Bundesliga, Champions League, Formula One and tennis, as well as sports news channel Sky Sport News HD and children's channel Disney XD.

Additionally, A&O will offer its guests in more than 3,700 rooms the channels Sky Sport News HD and Disney XD free of charge as well.

"We are happy to have won A&O Hostels as a partner," Uwe Müller, vice president Sky Business Solutions, said in Munich. "Premium television as a firm component of hotel services is a growing trend and will in future not only be standard in luxury hotels, but also in smaller and medium-sized venues."
