Being there when Cristiano Ronaldo lifts the European Championship cup, Usain Bolt sprints to Olympic gold or LeBron James puts on his championship ring – there’s almost nothing better for true sports fans. 2016 is a year of sporting highlights.
The German soccer league (Bundesliga) has just started a new season, the national easycredit basketball league (BBL) is soon to follow suit and the next season of the German ice hockey league (DEL) is also about to get under way. EntertainTV customers can be there live from start to finish.
All BBL games exclusively
Deutsche Telekom started showing all BBL games exclusively two years ago and has added select games from the Turkish Airlines Euroleague and the NBA. Through its partnership with Sky, Deutsche Telekom also screens all the matches played in the Bundesliga, UEFA Champions League, UEFA Europa League and the German Cup (DFB-Pokal). Viewers can follow many more sports events on free TV as well as on additional channels from the BIG-TV package, such as Sport1+ HD, Sport1 US HD, auto motor, sport HD and Eurosport 2.
DT has secured the media rights
Ice hockey fans are already looking forward to the first highlight at the start of the season in September. Telekom is expanding its sports program and, starting with the 2016/17 season, is broadcasting all the big games and play-offs in the German ice hockey league – that’s up to 419 matches per season. In fact, fans can rest assured they are not going to miss any of their favorite team’s games – not now, not ever: Deutsche Telekom has secured the media rights for broadcasting DEL games live until 2020.
Thanks to this deal, all games will be screened live and in full HD. An experienced team of big-name presenters, commentators and experts will be guiding viewers through the matches live from the game. Meanwhile, up to ten cameras per match will be making sure that fans at home always have the best possible view of the action.
All DEL matches through an app, on TV and online
The sports packages offered by Deutsche Telekom have been optimized for all terminal devices and are not vendor dependent. Customers can access live games and on-demand content through EntertainTV on a laptop, tablet, smartphone or smart TV, or via a range of streaming services. That means ice hockey fans are only ever one click away from a stadium atmosphere – no matter where they are or what time it is.

EntertainTV customers can enjoy the entire package for free. Fixed-network and mobile customers with a contract and Internet access can watch all content for free for 24 months, after which they will pay 4.95 euros per month. Non-Telekom customers can get an annual subscription for 9.95 euros per month. Viewers who appreciate flexibility can buy a monthly subscription for 16.95 euros.
