Discovery gets injunction against Sky Bundesliga marketing

Wednesday 28 June 2017 | 10:32 CET | News
Discovery Communications has obtained an injunction against Sky Deutschland from a court in Cologne, restricting the pay-TV operators advertising of coverage of the Bundesliga football league, reports DWDL.de. Discovery's channel Eurosport holds rights to some of the Bundesliga matches and found that Sky's marketing, as the 'home of the Bundesliga', suggested the pay-TV provider still had full coverage of the league. Discovery is showing its own games over the Eurosport Player, a direct-to-consumer service, rather than on the Eurosport channels distributed by Sky.
