Sky Deutschland pushes ahead with pioneering 5G trials for in-stadium app and e2e broadcasting

Sky Deutschland recently conducted two trials of live sports broadcasting using 5G technology, furthering its ambitions to make more efficient broadcasts as well as open up new in-stadium revenue streams.

As part of Sky Sport’s 5G activities, it implemented two successful 5G cases. On 6 November with Vodafone at the Bundesliga Match of the Week, Leipzig versus Dortmund at the Red Bull Arena, an in-stadium app was trialled, and on 10 November with Telefonica O2 at the handball Bundesliga Match of the Week Flensburg versus Berlin at the Flens-Arena stadium, the focus was on an end to end cloud production, building on a similar trial carried out by Sky Sport and O2 last year.
