Since 2017, Sky must share the broadcasting rights of the German football league: with the public broadcasters, with Eurosport – and more recently with DAZN. At first, the sports streaming provider DAZN only broadcast Bundesliga summaries and no live matches, so that changes now for the 2019/20 season. DAZN takes over all games of Eurosport. In addition to the Friday game at 20.30, these are also the rare Monday games and Sunday games, which are already kicked off at 13.30. In addition, the provider will also transfer all relegation games between the 1st and 2nd Bundesliga at the end of the season. Eurosport ceded the rights that the station had bought until 2021 early.
