With TIMvision the Sky Sport Plus channel and the "Uefa Champions League" matches and "Uefa Euro 2016" qualifiers, broadcast exclusively by Sky, will be available on smartphones and tablets

Sky and Telecom Italia today signed a new agreement, strengthening their partnership, to broadcast the Sky channels dedicated to the exclusive “Uefa Champions League” matches and “Uefa Euro 2016” qualifiers on TIM's 3G and 4G networks.

After the Winter Olympics in Sochi, the FIFA World Cup and the Formula1 world championship, TIMvision - Telecom Italia's on-demand TV - will broadcast an extraordinary season of European football on smartphones and tablets.

The matches will in fact be available for TIM customers, both on mobile broadband and ultrabroadband networks and Wi-Fi from the Telecom Italia fixed network.

In order to access the dedicated channels just download the free TIMvision App and activate “Sky Sport UEFA Champions League 2014-15”. The service will be available at a price of 5 euros per month which includes the data traffic and without any activation fee.

This new agreement further enhances the prestigious sports content offered to TIM customers and confirms Sky's strategy to extend its exclusive content to the widest possible audience through new distribution channels. The strategic partnership signed last November between Telecom Italia and Sky is in this way strengthened and will lead at the beginning of 2015 to the setting up of the first new generation IPTV in Italy to broadcast Sky's entire television offer through Telecom Italia's ultrabroadband networks.
