BT Sport has been on a spree lately, signing up anyone who hasn't got out of its way. And now it's signed FIFA World Cup champions Germany to its roster.

The service has snaffled the rights to Germany's home friendly matches. It will also show the DFB Cup, which is Germany's equivalent to the FA Cup.

BT Sport recently added Portugese Primeira Liga to its European line-up. As well as these two, it will also show Italy's Serie A, France's Ligue 1, and Germany's Bundesliga.

Anyone would think it was taking on Sky Sports 5, the new channel that's aiming to be the home of European football.

Germany's first match on BT Sport will be a doozy. It will take place on September 3, and will be a rematch of the World Cup final, as Germany take on Argentina.

BT Sport will announce dates of its DFB Cup coverage at a later date.

"BT Sport now offers a feast of European football action for fans," Simon Green, head of BT Sport, said in a statement. "Added to Italy's Serie A, France's Ligue 1, and Germany's Bundesliga, today's announcement gives our viewers a fantastic window into football on the continent. Our exclusively live TV coverage of Germany v Argentina will provide an early test of the World Champions' credentials."

BT Sport recently signed Jose Mourinho and Paul Scholes as pundits, and extended its sponsorship deal with Arsenal for another two years.
