Media Broadcast will distribute TV signals from stadiums used by Germany’s Bundesliga to public broadcaster ARD’s sports channel, Sportschau.
The contract is for the 2013/14 and 2014/15 seasons, and was signed with WDR, ARD's affiliate broadcaster responsible for the Bundesliga coverage.
The agreement contains an expansion option for two more seasons and comprises IP-based contribution feeds from all 18 Bundesliga locations through Media Broadcast's 400Mbps broadband network.
The TV signals of the second-division Bundesliga league will be transmitted via satellite using Media Broadcast’s capacity on Eutelsat 10A (10° East). The company will provide two Satellite News Gathering (SNG) trucks per season for each match day.
