After months of negotiations, the Premier League has announced a new domestic TV rights deal, that will see 270 live games broadcast between Sky and TNT sports.
Starting in the 2025-26 season, the record deal - worth £6.7billion - means Sky TV will remain the largest broadcaster of football in the UK. TNT Sports (formerly BT Sport) will continue to show over 50 live games, including all the 12.30 kick-offs on Saturdays.
The current deal, which expires at the end of the 2024/25 season, was originally for 3 years, but was extended to a 4th year due to the Covid Pandemic. That deal was worth £5billion.
Premier League Chief Executive Richard Masters, says the new deal represents an increase of 4% in live rights value, and will secure the financial stability of clubs throught to the end of 2029. Of course, the biggest winners in this deal will be Premier League clubs, with clubs further down the pyramid, wondering how the deal will benefit them...
