From August Mediaset will control exclusive rights for Italy on all platforms for live matches and highlights of the Champions League for the three-year period 2015-2016, 2016-2017, 2017-2018.
So Mediaset will be able to arrange exclusively rights for live broadcasts of all the matches for pay TV as well as those for a match in each round which can be seen free of charge. In addition it will be possible to broadcast all the matches, even those pre-recorded, the highlights, and all the goals can be seen the same evening, as well as direct streaming of matches on fixed and mobile devices.
There’ll be a novelty already from the next edition of the Champions League: for the first time in 14 years, the most important Wednesday evening match of the round will be broadcast exclusively and free of charge in HD only on Mediaset channels.
Until 2018, all the matches in the most important football championships in Europe, including the European Super cup will be visible only on Mediaset, thanks to their free and pay networks and the online services of the Mediaset Group.
