Tags New deal means all Premier League games will be available to Sky TV customers from next season games from three separate broadcasters will soon be available on the one platform. Having announced a deal to bundle BT Sport with their platform last October, Sky today announced that they have struck a similar arrangement with Premier Sports, which has bought the rights to live coverage of the 3pm Saturday kick-offs in the Premier League from next season. It means that Sky will now offer BT Sport and Premier Sports to their television customers through a bundle or on a standalone basis. Pricing will be announced in the next couple of months.
This is a quantum leap for the Guinness PRO14 and continues the remarkable transformation of the Championship which continues to grow its appeal after the successful expansion into South Africa.
Premier Sports are going to make the Guinness PRO14 its No 1 property and will therefore be launching the Premier Sports 2 channel with innovative High Definition production of games as well as highlights shows to take supporters right into the heart of the Championship.
From the beginning of next season Premier Sports and FreeSports will deliver unprecedented coverage of the Guinness PRO14 with extended pre and post-match analysis.
Ahead of next season Premier will confirm the recruitment of their on-air talent and commentators — characters who know just what it takes to compete in the Championship. As an innovative global rugby championship full of world-class players we are always looking to raise our game and this relationship is a bold step for us.
We believe that Premier Sports and the availability of FreeSports will offer us the best of both worlds — incredible quality and value for supporters as well as reach for our Championship. For more information about Premier Sports and FreeSports visit the following pages:.
