The problem is that besides Ronaldo there isn't much connecting Serie A to the US market, even when Pulisic moved out of Germany there is a handful of American players in the BL. ESPN was showing about 1 game per week plus another on ESPND, I certainly expect more with the BL. Regardless, ESPN plus is only $5.99 per month and can be streamed to the TV from almost any device, Roku, Fire, Apple...also it is bundled with Hulu and Disney now and the combined package is around $12 per month. I still believe that FS1 and FS2 are not mainstream channels that most people get. Just look at what most hotel rooms offer, there are always several ESPN's, you seldom see the FS channels

I can now watch the Bayern games in 3 channels at the same time - Eurosport 2, Beinsports and the Max Sport package offered by my provider. 4 channels in which you can watch the Bundesliga (they are also showing the replays of Bayern on Bayern TV), Serie A, La Liga, all Champions League games, Eredivisie, Copa Libertadores and the Brazilian Serie A. And that's only with the football... All that for.. 3 euro. My other package is worth 4 euros for other 3 channels and I'm watching the Premier League, Bulgarian league, Ligue 1, the Turkish Super Lig and the Russian Premier Liga on them.

Bundesliga’s OTT service to be ‘complementary’ during forthcoming rights cycle
Bundesliga Pass, the over-the-top subscription service that has been developed by Germany’s Bundesliga, will primarily be used as a “complementary” service, with the lion’s share of coverage worldwide set to remain with broadcasters in each territory.

The German Football League (DFL) revealed in August that it had been working on its own direct-to-consumer offering to showcase live games from the top-tier Bundesliga from the 2020-21 season onwards.

The move was viewed as a self-defence mechanism by the league to arm itself with more leverage in rights negotiations, in addition to developing the property in some markets, but raised the question as to how many markets the league would, in reality, retain the rights to showcase itself.

Speaking to SportBusiness here at Sportel Monaco, Robert Klein, chief executive of Bundesliga International, the league’s worldwide rights sales arm, said: “We’ve got great partners in 211 markets. Therefore I anticipate that we’re going to continue deals with these partners or similar players.

“The Bundesliga Pass is in an initial sense more a complementary offering and what lies on there is a very good question. You need compelling content to make sure that people are going to be coming back.”

A provisional price point of $7.99 per month has been set for the direct-to-consumer service, but the exact pricing would be dependent on the market in question. Free (non-live) content could also be offered and with Klein and his team encouraged by research backing up the appetite among a young demographic for lifestyle stories on players and clubs, along with a range of data.

Expanding on the OTT offering, he stated: “Any professional league now has to have the possibility to offer their own direct-to-consumer [platform] for a number of reasons.

“It can be to go into a territory where you believe the product can actually stand on its own two feet. It could be to have a supporting offering alongside a traditional partner there because there is so much content that we produce and fans that ask for it as an alternative. And also as a defensive mechanism.”

“Therefore the Bundesliga Pass is ready to go at the right time if and when we need it in a number of territories.”

undesliga Pass has been devised with the intention to stream all Bundesliga games, plus live games from the second-tier 2. Bundesliga, and also showcase around 8,000 hours of archive content.

Bundesliga International is now actively going to market (or will soon do so) with its rights outside of Europe, China and USA (where a six-year deal was recently struck with ESPN) given the existing agreements expire at the end of this season. The rights sales processes are now particularly “live” in Asia, Latin America, sub-Saharan Africa and the Middle East and North Africa.The rights sales vary in nature between invitations to tender that are issued and direct conversations with broadcasters.

The recent ESPN+ agreement was evidence of Bundesliga International’s willingness to embrace a rights deal that priorities content distribution via OTT. Just four games per season are expected to be shown by ESPN’s linear channels.

Klein said that Bundesliga International would look to agree similar digitally-focused deals elsewhere subject to the “partner, the territory and what is on offer”.

He added: “With the ESPN deal the home of Bundesliga will be on a digital platform (ESPN+) but it’s part of a much bigger ecosystem. They have 93 million unique users on a monthly basis on their digital platforms.”

A broadcaster’s “storytelling” role has become a key component alongside the delivery of the live content, he added.

Asked about the league’s appetite to sell rights on to agencies, Klein pointed to the increased sales capacity at Bundesliga International and the desire to have a direct relationship with a broadcaster, but did not rule out awarding rights to agencies for the forthcoming cycle.

He said that agencies would still have a role to play “in the right circumstances” and if they can “deliver a better result and better relationship”, but that they would need to work alongside the league’s in-house arm in selling the rights.

In 2018, Bundesliga International terminated its agreement with the MP & Silva agency to sell the broadcast rights in 34 European countries until the end of the 2020-21 season.

On that note, he underlined: “We will also be very careful to make sure of course that they can provide the financial securities that we need.”

CBS Confirms It Snagged Champions League Soccer Rights Starting In 2021
While CBS posted mixed third-quarter results Tuesday, the company’s acting CEO, Joe Ianniello, delivered a sports surprise during a conference call with Wall Street analysts.

CBS has won the rights to air UEFA Champions League soccer beginning in 2021, beating out several other suitors, Ianniello said. The package includes more than 400 matches a year, spanning nine months out of the year. All matches will stream live on CBS All Access, with select matches airing on the CBS broadcast network.The deal brings “exclusive, live, marquee sports” to All Access for the first time, Ianniello noted. The service currently streams NFL games, but CBS shares football streaming rights with several other players.“Soccer fans know these rights represent some of the most prestigious and popular soccer tournaments in the world, so we couldn’t be more pleased that we’ve won this hotly contested process,” Iannniello said. ESPN, NBCUniversal and Fox were all reportedly part of the bidding. Turner and Univision previously shared rights, and Univision has reportedly renewed the Spanish-language rights.

CBS is “finalizing contracts” and plans to release more information in the coming weeks, Ianniello said. While the acquisition startled many sports-rights watchers, its timing on the eve of the CBS-Viacom merger closing delivers a message to the market that CBS is serious about maintaining its sports leverage.

The Champions League is Europe’s top cup competition, fought between the winners of each of the domestic leagues including the English Premier League and Spain’s La Liga. Liverpool holds the current Champions League title, having beaten Tottenham Hotspur in an all-English final last summer.While Ianniello did not address the value of the deal, Sports Business Daily recently reported CBS and Univision were paying a combined $150 million a year. CBS Sports declined to offer additional details beyond Ianniello’s comments.

Ianniello said the ability of CBS to both broadcast and stream matches, across a leading linear network and a growing streaming platform, helped carry the day with the Champions League. And for CBS, “it’s going to reduce churn. We think it drives subscribers, there are loyal fans. It is obviously the most popular sport in the world.”

The soccer win anchored Ianniello’s broader comments on the earnings call detailing expanding investment by CBS in streaming and programming in general. The spending has gradually ramped up and correlates with returns, he said. CBS did not provide an update on streaming subscribers during the call but has projected it will reach 25 million subscribers for both All Access and Showtime by 2022.

“As consumers shift from traditional bundles to skinnier bundles and to CBS All Access and Showtime OTT, we are getting paid higher rates per subscriber,” he said. Across traditional distributors, virtual MVPDs and the company’s own direct-to-consumer platforms, total subscriber levels increased 4% in the quarter.The CBS broadcast network is off to “another great start,” airing five of television’s eight top-rated new series. “We will benefit from all five series into the future,” Ianniello said, and CBS owns four of the five.

While primetime viewership continues to decline for CBS and broadcast overall, NFL ratings have been strong through the first nine weeks of the season, rising 6%. Out-of-home viewing would boost that by another 11%, Ianniello said, and starting in September 2020, CBS will report all Nielsen numbers with the out-of-home portion included.

As the CBS-Viacom merger approaches its expected close in early December, one cross-company move flagged by Ianniello was an expected announcement Wednesday of new CBS channels being added to PlutoTV. The free, ad-supported streaming service, acquired by Viacom in January, has launched several Viacom channels in recent months. CBS, meanwhile, has gotten traction with several of its own AVOD networks including CBSN and CBS Sports HQ.

Amazon and DAZN secure UEFA TV rights - but is it cheaper to just go to the game?
Streaming services DAZN and Amazon have edged out Sky in the battle for Champions League broadcasting rights in Germany. What does it mean for fans in the stadium and at home - and is German broadband even fast enough?German football supporters have long been vocal critics of the influence of television broadcasters in the game, protesting against Monday night fixtures and the ever-growing number of kick-off times for the benefit of TV viewers.

Following the latest allocation of Champions League broadcasting rights in Germany though, those fans watching at home are also going to have to adjust as football consumption habits continue to evolve.

As of the 2021/22 season, Europe's premier club competition will only be available via DAZN and Amazon. The online streaming services outbid Sky, which has failed to secure any UEFA broadcasting rights in Germany for the first time in almost 20 years.

London-based DAZN is already an established player, having first acquired German broadcasting rights for the English Premier League in 2016. It has also been showing Champions League and Europa League football since 2018.

This season, it has begun broadcasting live Bundesliga matches for the first time, showing the 30 Friday night games throughout the season as well as the five Sunday lunchtime kick-offs.

Under the new Champions League deal, DAZN will show the majority of games in Germany, although the biggest game of the week, likely with German involvement, will be on Amazon's video service (Amazon Prime).Prime Time

The retail giant is making its first foray into football broadcasting this season after acquiring the rights to two English Premier League matchdays, including the traditional Boxing Day fixtures on December 26.

Its acquisition of German Champions League rights represents another step in the evolution of televised football - and it isn't cheap.

Television fans in Germany will now need three separate subscriptions if they want to have access to every Bundesliga and Champions League fixture between 2021 and 2024.

Sky's Bundesliga package currently costs €24.99 ($27.80) per month for the first 12 months for new customers (€49.99 per month thereafter), while DAZN costs either €11.99 per month (including one month free and monthly cancellation) or €119.99 for a year's subscription. Add Amazon Prime for another €7.99 (including 30 free days) and fans could be looking at a total of nearly €70 a month. Extrapolated over a nine-month football season from September to May, that's €630 – more expensive than the cheapest seated season tickets at any Bundesliga club, and three times more than most standing season tickets.

Of course, for those supporters whose clubs compete internationally, Champions League games aren't included in the price of a season ticket, nor are domestic cup games. But even a Borussia Dortmund supporter who watches every home game in all competitions from the Yellow Wall in the first half of this season – a total of 12 games – will only have spent €177.Is Germany ready?

Cost won't be the only problem for Germany. Streaming live football requires a fast internet connection, which, incredibly, isn't always a given in Germany.

According to a recent study by Germany's Federal Network Agency (BNetzA), almost 30 percent of Germans have to make do with speeds less than half of that which companies promised in their contracts as the government has consistently failed to meet its own targets. Indeed, according to the German government's own data, less than half of households in some rural areas have access to 50 megabit broadband.

But with DAZN and Amazon carving up rights at the expense of Sky and the traditional public and terrestrial broadcasters, the prevalence of online streaming services is only set to increase.

Ironically though, given the cost and the lack of infrastructure, it may be easier and cheaper to just go to the game.
