The Premier League today confirmed that Sky has successfully secured 116 live matches per year for the seasons running from 2013-14 until 2015-16. As a result, Sky will continue to be the UK’s leading Premier League broadcaster with more live matches than ever before.
Sky will pay £760 million per annum for the 5 packages of live rights for each of the three years of the new Premier League agreement.
“This is a good result for our customers and for our business. It means that Sky Sports remains the home of Premier League football and that viewers will continue to enjoy our live and exclusive coverage until at least 2016.” – Jeremy Darroch, Sky’s Chief Executive
Rival sports broadcaster ESPN has lost the remaining 2 packages to BT.
