Prime Tel nets Bundesliga rights

Cypriot operator Prime Tel has acquired the exclusive broadcast rights to German soccer’s top-tier league, the Bundesliga.

The agreement, which begins at the start of the 2017/18 Bundesliga season, will cover the next four German soccer campaigns. Prime Tel will broadcast nine games per week on a live or delayed broadcast basis. 

It will also produce three weekly magazines that will include edited highlights of the league’s fixtures along with interviews with players and managers. 

Bayern Munich won the 2016/17 Bundesliga title by a margin of 15 points from second-placed RB Leipzig. It was the fifth Bundesliga title in a row that Bayern have won and their 26th championship overall.
