​BT Sport to show all remaining Bundesliga games

UK pay-television broadcaster BT Sport will show every remaining German Bundesliga match this season as the league gears up for its return this weekend, reports SportBusiness.

BT will broadcast live all nine matches from the first match day of the restarted season (match day 26). These matches will be shown across BT Sports' three linear channels as well as its overflow channels.

However, BT is unable, as yet, to commit to broadcasting all matches live from matchday 27 to the end of the season.

It told SportBusiness today (Wednesday): "The Bundesliga have not yet announced kick-off times for subsequent matchweeks, and once they do, we will decide our coverage plans for other games."

BT holds the exclusive rights to the Bundesliga in the UK and Ireland in a deal covering four seasons from 2017-18 to 2020-21.
