Why is the TV live stream blocked for certain programs?

These interruptions are due to copyright restrictions. DW is not entitled to show clips from German Bundesliga games via the live stream.

During  weekend, the first part DW's  News  on our  German-language Web page is not available – because of Bundesliga. Streaming is also blocked during Bundesliga's broadcasts of "Kick off!" and "Kick-off! Countdown."
