Football fans have to spend even more money in the new Champions League season than in the previous season. In order to have free choice in the three European Cup competitions, even three subscriptions are necessary.
Two subscriptions are required for the premier class. DAZN and Amazon are showing the Champions League for the second year. Amazon customers can watch the top game on Tuesday via the Prime Video offer.
Here you can see the game between Borussia Dortmund and Manchester City on the fifth day of the group stage. Kick-off is at 9 p.m.
DAZN shows all other games. The paid internet provider has purchased a package with a total of 121 live games, including conferences. At the same time as BVB meets Man City on Tuesday, RB Leipzig will host Real Madrid (also kick-off at 9 p.m.).
On Wednesday, DAZN will show the games FC Barcelona against Bayern Munich, Eintracht Frankfurt against Olympique Marseille and Atletico Madrid against Bayer Leverkusen (kick-off 9 p.m. each time).
Supporters of Leipzig and Leverkusen may be angry at the disregard from online giant Amazon, which does not show their teams' group stage games. On the other hand, the fans of RB and Bayer can be happy because they only need one subscription for the six live games of their team, at least for the time being.
The range of moving images of the most important club competition on free-to-air television is still scarce. ZDF is allowed to broadcast the final live and also shows highlights. On a total of 14 match days, the second offers summaries on Wednesdays from 11 p.m.
Fans must find out beforehand which pub is broadcasting which games. Sky does not own any rights, but after an agreement with Amazon offers Prime Video's live games in the sports bars with contracts. Pubs that also want to show their customers the other games need an additional contract with DAZN.
Fans of SC Freiburg, 1. FC Union Berlin and 1. FC Köln do not need Amazon or DAZN. The television home of the Europa League and the Conference League is the RTL Group. The games of the two competitions are shown on RTL, on the niche channel Nitro and on the in-house streaming service RTL.
The game between Union Berlin and Sporting Braga will be shown on RTL from 6.45 p.m. on Thursday. From 9 p.m., RTL will also broadcast SC Freiburg's home game against Olympiacos Piraeus on linear TV. From 11 p.m. there are summaries of the other Europa League games. Fans of 1. FC Köln can watch "Effzeh's" Conference League game at 1. FC Slovacko on RTL on Thursday. Kick-off is at 6.45 p.m.
RTL has also become more expensive. A subscription to the streaming service for ten months (Season Pass) costs EUR 49.90 after EUR 34.99 in the previous season.
