Sports and more can also be booked for a short time at Magenta TV Flex
More and more sports are disappearing from public television because private TV stations and streaming services are securing transmission rights. Deutsche Telekom is also involved in this, for example as the only provider to show all the games from the European Football Championship this summer.
Telekom also holds rights to the basketball league, the German ice hockey league, the third football league and the football world championship in the coming year. Here, too, all games only run via Magenta TV, its own streaming service.
The Flex version of Magenta TV is particularly suitable for major sporting events because it can be booked independently of the Internet provider and canceled on a monthly basis. Most football fans can probably get over the subscription fee of ten euros for one month and thus, for example, for the entire Fifa World Cup in 2022. When booking, it is important to actually choose the Flex variant – Telekom also offers a 24-month tariff and advertises it prominently with “3 months free”.
In the Flex version, Magenta TV is also suitable for watching major sporting events such as the soccer World Cup in 2022: This costs ten euros once.
The Magenta TV app for streaming is available for computers, smartphones and tablets as well as the Amazon Fire TV stick, Google Chromecast, Apple TV and individual televisions. The advertising “Live also in Ultra HD” is only valid to a limited extent, however, because streaming in 4K currently only works with Telekom’s own devices such as the Magenta TV stick. Without this, the resolution is automatically reduced to Full HD, even if the streaming device, television and transmission bandwidth support 4K in principle.
In addition, Magenta TV as well as Zattoo or Waipu TV and other paid IPTV services are suitable for watching the usual television program while on vacation in another EU country. The EU portability regulation basically prohibits geoblocking within the European Union, so that all channels can be received there. This does not apply to free offers such as Zattoo Free.
