Sky Italia adds Europa League, Fox Sport to sports package

Tuesday 9 June 2015 | 10:47 CET | News
Italian broadcaster Sky Italia has announced that it will be adding live Europa League games and Fox Sport channels to its Sky Sport package in time for the forthcoming season. The live Europa League games will be broadcast on an exclusive basis in Italy, while the Fox Sport channels include live English Premier League games for the next three years. The new additions compensate for the loss of the rights to broadcast Champions League football between 2015 and 2018, which were awarded to pay-TV rival Mediaset Premium.
