FRANKFURT May 3 (Reuters) - German pay-TV operator Sky Deutschland said on Friday it had seen positive effects on its sales from the strong performance of the German soccer teams in the Champions League.

"It is too early to say something about the second quarter but we definitely saw a positive effect on our sales," said Sky Deutschland's Chief Executive Brian Sullivan.
