Dyn Media secures exclusive table tennis rights with WTT


Dyn Media, the prominent German sports streaming platform, has announced a significant addition to its content portfolio with the acquisition of top-tier table tennis rights.

In a two-year deal with World Table Tennis (WTT), the commercial and events operator for the International Table Tennis Federation (ITTF), Dyn’s streaming service is set to become the premier destination for WTT competitions in Germany, Austria, and Switzerland starting next month.

This comprehensive agreement grants Dyn exclusive streaming rights to all WTT Grand Smashes, WTT Champions, WTT Finals and the prestigious ITTF World Championships Finals.

The production and global media rights distribution for WTT events are managed by IMG, the renowned sports marketing agency owned by Endeavor.

The partnership between Dyn and WTT will kick off with the highly anticipated ITTF World Team Table Tennis Championship Finals, scheduled to take place from February 16-25 in Busan, South Korea.

“We are thrilled 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,” said Melissa Soobratty, broadcast director at WTT.

Johannes Fuhner, Dyn Media’s head of strategy and business intelligence, echoed the sentiment, stating, “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 Media officially launched on August 23, offering an annual subscription priced at €150, or €12.50 per month, with a single-month subscription available for €14.50.

In late-November, Dyn struck a sub-licensing agreement with SportA, the sports rights agency of public service broadcasters ARD and ZDF, to showcase every game from the EHF European Handball Championship national team’s tournament. The streaming service provided live and on-demand coverage of all 65 games from the competition, which took place in Germany from January 10 to 28.
