Sky extend near-live TV rights for Premier League


 

Sky Sports has secured a three-year deal with the Premier League for near-live extended highlights.

The deal will run until 2019 and will allow Sky Sports to broadcast extended highlights of all 212 Premier League matches not broadcast live on television.

"Sky Sports has never been in a stronger position with this deal cementing our position as the first choice for sports fans," said Sky Sports managing director Barney Francis.

"It completes the set and is more good news for Sky Sports viewers having already secured more live Premier League matches from the 2016/17 season, as well as clips from every match available on mobile and online."

The agreement adds to Sky Sports' Premier League rights deal it secured from the 2016/17 season.
