Q2 and Vier pick up free-to-air Uefa Champions League rights

Free-to-air broadcasters Q2 and Vier will share rights in the Flemish-speaking region of Belgium to the Uefa Champions League, European club soccer’s premier competition.

Incumbent rights holder Q2, which is the sister channel of Flemish-language network VTM, will continue to cover the tournament for the next three-season cycle, showing Wednesday matches live along with highlights.

Vier, meanwhile, will begin its coverage from the beginning of next season, when it will show live games on Tuesday evenings.

At the end of 2017, Belgian pay-TV network Proximus and French-language commercial broadcaster RTL retained Uefa Champions League rights in Belgium until the end of the 2020/21 season.

The 2017/18 Uefa Champions League gets back underway on 13th February with the first round of two-legged knockout ties.
