The TV blackout to restart the German Bundesliga after the Corona break has been averted. The live broadcast of the match between Werder Bremen and Bayer 04 Leverkusen will be shown on Monday evening in the DAZN streaming service. The German Football League (DFL) announced on Sunday via Twitter. “The DFL is in talks about other games,” it said.
For a long time, a transfer of the last game of the 26th round was on the brink. The background to the problem is a dispute over the TV contract between the Eurosport / Discovery group and the DFL. DAZN has acquired a sublicense from the divisional broadcaster Eurosport, which had secured the rights for a total of 40 point games live in the most recent tender: for the 30 Bundesliga games on Friday, five each on Sunday and Monday. After two seasons with moderate viewer success, Eurosport had decided against further use of the rights last summer and had concluded a contract with DAZN.
So far, according to information from the German Press Agency, Eurosport has not paid the last TV rate for the current season – and DAZN has not paid its share in the Eurosport parent company Discovery.
