Sport1 US, the German pay-TV channel for the fans of US sports, has left OTT platform Amazon Channels.
The withdrawal took place due to copyright reasons, a Sport1 spokesman told Broadband TV News. “The legal issue arose on short notice and wasn’t foreseeable in this form.”
Customers having subscribed to Sport1 US through Amazon Channels will receive a refund in the next few days.
The channel remains available on all other platforms. Sport1 US joined Amazon Channels in early September 2017.
