Dyn Media, the German sports streaming platform, has today unveiled the addition of a package of top table tennis rights.

Through an initial two-year deal with World Table Tennis (WTT), the commercial and events operator for the International Table Tennis Federation (ITTF), Dyn’s streaming service will become the home of WTT competitions in Germany, Austria, and Switzerland, from next month (February).

The two-year agreement will see action from all WTT Grand Smashes, WTT Champions, WTT Finals, and the International Table Tennis Federation’s (ITTF) World Championships Finals feature on Dyn.

IMG, the Endeavor-owned sports marketing agency, manages the production and global media rights distribution of WTT events.

The partnership between Dyn and WTT will begin with the ITTF World Team Table Tennis Championship Finals, taking place between 16 and 25 February in Busan, South Korea.

Melissa Soobratty, broadcast director at WTT, said: “We are delighted to partner with Dyn Media to bring the best of World Table Tennis to fans across Germany, Switzerland, and Austria. This partnership will showcase our reimagined production and help elevate the sport to new heights in the region."

Johannes Fuhner, Dyn Media’s head of strategy and business intelligence, added: “WTT events feature the world's elite table tennis players, and we are excited to expand our platform's offering with further exciting games at a world-class level. Our partnership with World Table Tennis will provide fans with an unparalleled viewing experience, and we hope to see more fans tuning in and witnessing the sport."

Dyn officially launched on August 23, with an annual subscription costing €150 ($164), the equivalent of €12.50 per month, while a single-month subscription costs €14.50.

In late November, Dyn struck a sub-licensing deal with SportA, the sports rights agency of public service broadcasters ARD and ZDF, to show every game from the EHF European Handball Championship national teams tournament.

The service provided live and on-demand coverage of all 65 games from the competition, which was held in Germany from January 10 to 28.
