German Public Broadcaster ZDF Will Submit Bid To Retain Champions League TV Rights
German public broadcaster ZDF "will again bid on Champions League broadcast rights as the tender process for the '15-16 season and beyond gets under way," according to Alexander Krei of DWDL. ZDF Sports Dir Dieter Gruschwitz said, "ZDF continues to be interested in Champions League rights and will submit a bid for the upcoming rights period." The public broadcaster "seems to have good chances retaining the rights." Media corporation ProSiebenSat.1 "is following a different strategy and RTL recently acquired rights for German national team games" (DWDL, 10/28).
