As well as TV, Eurosport gets digital rights meaning it can make matches available on its TV everywhere service Eurosport Player. It is also and is permitted to sub-license rights across the territories covered by the deal.

Eurosport gets the extended Bundesliga rights across 22 territories in the Nordic and Central and Eastern Europe regions.
