Subscribers to the Romanian DTH platform Boom TV will be able to watch live Champions League matches over the internet for only €1 a month.

However, according to ZF, they may only do so after taking out a Champions League TV package that costs €2.5 a month.

Israeli-owned Boom TV is one of five DTH platforms in Romania and currently has around 200,000 subscribers.

There has been speculation for some about it being a take-over target for the incumbent telco Romtelecom, which operates the rival DTH platform Dolce.
