Comcast's (CMCSA) Sky Sports is set to broadcast an increased number of premier league matches in the United Kingdom.
Sky Sports has won the rights to show nearly a hundred more English Premier League matches from 2025, the league said on Monday, adding that all games except Saturday 3pm kickoffs would be televised in Britain for the first time. Sky Sports will show a minimum of 215 live matches per season between 2025/26-2028/29 and TNT Sports - formerly BT Sport - will show 52 live matches per season during that period. The deals will deliver 6.7 billion pounds ($8.45 billion) in revenue across the four-year period, the Premier League said in its statement, adding that it was inclusive of a 4% rise in live rights value compared to the previous process.
