What does screen mean in football

Numerous football fans were amazed at this innovation over the weekend. When the games in the Bundesliga and the 2nd division were broadcast, a strange symbol was displayed on the pay-TV channel Sky at the bottom left of the screen. Many fans puzzled on social networks - until the station itself provided an explanation.

Since the restart after the Corona crisis, a watermark can be seen on Sky broadcasts. In addition to the Bundesliga logo, which traditionally can be seen at the bottom right of the audience, there is now a small rectangle on the left. It shows a circle with a wave. A symbol that caused astonishment among many football fans.

PID: Sky explains new symbol for TV broadcasts

"This is a so-called" PID "(best not google it;)), ie a" Platform Identifier ". This is for content protection, ”wrote the“ Sky Service ”on Twitter in response to a user's request. This is a clear assignment of the digital video material, which can be identified at any time and anywhere by the individual PID code.

The logo was already visible on users' screens last season. It has not disappeared for the 2020/21 season either, but is still visible. In the "Sky Go" app, however, the new symbol is not displayed.
