ITV4 will air a weekly Bundesliga highlights show from next week.

ITV4 has picked up the free-to-air highlights rights for Germany's Bundesliga.

The channel's agreement with the Deutsche Fussball Liga (DFL) begins this season and will see a weekly one-hour highlights show air on ITV4 every Monday night at 10pm.

The deal does not affect ESPN's existing contract with the DFL, which allows the broadcaster to air several games live each week as well as a highlights show.

The move is part of male-skewing ITV4's ongoing sport strategy and complements existing coverage of cycling, motorsport, rugby and the Europa League.

The new Bundesliga season kicks off this weekend.
