OTE, the largest pay-TV operator in Greece, has announced that it has signed a renewed deal to air top-tier soccer matches from Germany.

Deutsche Telekom-owned OTE will extend its Bundesliga rights for two years, until the end of the 2016/17 season. Under the agreement it will also show matches from Germany’s second tier, and the country's Supercup. No financial details were released.

As well as being shown on traditional TV, the games will also be available through the operator’s recently announced OTE Go service, which offers viewing across a range of mobile devices. Dimitris Michalakis, OTE TV director, said in a statement that the deal will allow fans to “continue enjoying the highest quality sports TV program in Greece”. The announcement comes days after OTE confirmed it was also renewing its deal to show Serie A matches from Italy.

The German league will stage its final round of matches this weekend, though Bayern Munich have already confirmed their status as champions.
