Telefonica has acquired the broadcast rights for the German Bundesliga in Spain. The telecoms operator will carry live HD coverage of the matches on its pay television service, Movistar+. Subscribers may gain access to live online streams for the games on the Movistar+ app.
In the middle of the 2018/19 season, Telefonica took over Italian Serie A broadcast rights in Spain from previous holders beIN Sports and Gol. Telefonica’s over-the-top (OTT) platform Movistar+ will therefore air select matches from every round, for the remainder of the deal’s period. Movistar+ Lite, the other OTT service launched by Telefonica in mid-2019, will also grant its subscribers access to live Serie A games as a low-fee offer.
