Sky Deutschland terminates T-Entertain contract

Sky Deutschland has terminated its contract with Deutsche Telekom to distribute content on the telco’s IPTV platform T-Entertain.

A spokesperson for the German pay-TV operator, formerly known as Premiere, said both companies were still in talks but confirmed it had terminated the distribution contract.
Until last season, Premiere and Deutsche Telekom had collaborated on Bundesliga football coverage. From next season, Constantin Medien will produce the telco’s IPTV Bundesliga coverage.

Separately, 99.8% of Sky Deutschland’s shareholders have approved the company’s name change.
