Sky, TNT Sports Secure Premier League Rights


Sky has secured the broadcast rights to show a record number of Premier League matches in a new four-year deal, with TNT Sports also continuing to show live and exclusive coverage for a further four years.

Sky’s exclusively live coverage will increase by 70 percent from 2025-26, with up to 100 more matches each season. With four packages awarded, the maximum for any one broadcaster, over 80 percent of live broadcast Premier League matches will be on Sky Sports, and customers can expect at least four live games every week.

TNT Sports will continue to show live and exclusive Premier League matches for a further four years, starting from the 2025-26 season through to the 2028-29 season. TNT will air 52 exclusively live matches per season.

Also, Premier League highlights will remain free-to-air for audiences on the BBC following a deal for the next four years.

The BBC’s deal with the Premier League ensures that the Match of the Day, which celebrates its 60th Anniversary in August next year, will remain a staple of Saturday night up to and including the 2028-29 season.

Dana Strong, group CEO of Sky, said: “This is a fantastic result for Sky customers, who will see a significant increase in the number of matches from the most iconic league in the world.
