Presumably TIM have ended sponsorship.

Nope, it's just absent from the version above.

Actually that's quite a clever (if angular and ugly) logo. Not only do you get a big 'A' for Serie A, but there's a 'C' presumably for Calcio. Which is shorthand speak in Italy for Football or Soccer.

So that's a result of Disney buying 21st Century Fox. IIRC the US Fox Sport channels and it's regional network fell outside the deal, but what about Fox Sports in Australia?

It's a bit more complicated. The regional Fox Sports channels (FSN) were transferred to Disney but have to be sold off by Disney within 90 days.

Fox Sports national networks (FS1 and FS2) remain under the News Corp banner. Fox Sports Australia is owned by Foxtel (65% owned by News Corp Australia)

So Fox Sports Australia unaffected then. Looks like the regional FSN has been sold to Sinclair. I think they've always been run as a different operation to the national channels.

Fox Corp - the bits of 21st Century Fox that the Murdochs kept because of competition concerns (the FCC wouldn’t let Disney own both ABC and Fox and presumably wasn’t keen on them having both ESPN and the FS networks either) - not News Corp (the largely print media operation, except in Australia where they also own the broadcasting assets).

Incidentally I have no idea why, when 21st Century Fox was originally split from News Corp, the Australian broadcasting assets were treated differently to those everywhere else which were all assigned to Fox.

Seems Eurosport have sublet their Bundesliga rights to DAZN Germany who will produce and market the matches Eurosport had as exclusive in 2018-9. DAZN will provide non exclusive coverage back to Eurosport for limited distribution, mainly Broadcast whilst retaining the acquired streaming rights themselves. DAZN's portfolio being significantly enhanced as a result.

Eurosport have agreed that their German language Player customers can cancel as a result without penalty. There's a legacy issue with Eurosport on AZPV DE though, presumably contractual between AZPV and Eurosport which means streaming will continue on an extra channel via ES Player on AZPV DE for the 2019-20 season as an exception for AZPV DE customers.

I was a bit skeptical about the logo, but that looks pretty smart.

Nice graphics, but why did they feel the need to do a second total rebrand just twelve months after the last one?

I didn't see much of last season, but I thought last year was just a logo change and the on-screen furniture stayed the same?

Nobody did, because it was on Eleven Sports for a good chunk of it!

But there were new graphics, they had a drop caps font which is quite usual for TV graphics these days but also one of the most iconic examples of the use of such a font in TV sport graphics is the host broadcaster graphics for Italia 90, which were then adopted by Serie A and used for some years afterwards.
