Eight Premier League games will be played in a new 19:45 slot on Saturdays under the terms of a new broadcast package from the 2019-20 season.

Broadcasters will bid for rights to show 200 live matches, more than 50% of the league's 380 games and an increase on the current deal's 168.

The new package will also allow successful bidders to broadcast rounds of midweek matches in their entirety.

It will replace the existing record £5.136bn TV deal struck in 2015.

The new kick-off times on Saturdays will likely see matches shown at the same time as prime-time favourites such as Strictly Come Dancing and X-Factor.

All matches in three midweek rounds per season, and one Bank Holiday round per season, will be broadcast live.

The three-season agreement for 2016-17 until 2018-19 represented a 70% increase on the previous £3bn deal.

Sky paid £4.176bn to show 126 matches, including the first Friday evening games and both Sunday packages, and BT paid £960m for 42 games.

No single buyer will be allowed to acquire more than 148 matches per season. The auction for rights is to be held in February, according to reports.

Rights to show free-to-air Premier League highlights will form part of a separate broadcast package.

What can broadcasters bid for? (all times GMT/BST)
Package A: 32 matches on Saturdays at 12:30
Package B: 32 matches on Saturdays at 17:30
Package C: 24 matches on Sundays at 14:00 and eight matches on Saturdays at 19:45
Package D: 32 matches on Sundays at 16:30
Package E: 24 matches on Mondays at 20:00 or Fridays at 19:30/20:00 and eight matches on Sundays at 14:00
Package F: 20 matches from one Bank Holiday and one midweek fixture programme
Package G: 20 matches from two midweek fixture programmes

My issue with these mega bucks deals is that it squeezes normal people. Sky pay this stupid price and pass on the cost to their customers who in my opinion no one should be paying more than £40 a month for a sky world package never over £100. This is the part which really rankles me you then are paying over the odds for players because of these tv deals and its literally the fans footing the bill paying that extra money for these players which is wrong. We really need to spread information to show people how to get these games for cheap/free so they cancel their sky accounts because money is the only language these guys understand similar to EA and their loot crate debacle.

That ship has sailed a very long time ago. 

 

People power arguement is air as most don't care and are set in their ways tok much to change their "match not-going habits" 

The hand wringing when cretins like Keys and Grey were sacked showed ho2 ridiculous football fandom has become. 

 

The only hope is that the bottom falls out of the money stack due to some sort of scandal within the game. 

People have been campaigning for things you highlighted since the advent of all seater stadiums, all ticket games, Sky running things. 

The majority have shown they aren't interested in changing things and are happy with the staus quo so the average person stays getting raped. 

 

Why any self respecting football fan would have any respect or patronage for Sky or BT is beyond me. They take the piss out of match going fans on a weekly basis and have done so for decades. 

If you or anyone led a charge to put a stop to that there'd be protests against you.

Sky and BT sign channel sharing deal

By Tom EspinerBusiness reporter, BBC News

15 December 2017

 

 

Sky and BT have have signed a deal to sell their channels on each other's platforms.

Under the deal, BT will now supply its sports channels - which show UEFA Champions League and Premier League football - to Sky.

In addition, BT will be able to sell Sky's Now TV service - which includes Sky Sports, Sky Cinema and the Sky Atlantic channel - to its customers.

The deal comes as the firms face growing competition from online rivals.

Marc Allera, the chief executive of BT Consumer, told the BBC that the deal was partly so the firms could join forces against the potential online threat.

"A lot of technology companies are coming into the market with vast budgets, and changing the market. We need to ensure our customers get the best choice," he said.

In a complex market, potential rivals can also be partners, he added.

He said the Sky deal was a "clear indication" of the importance BT attached to how digital and TV markets were converging, adding the firm would bid fiercely for exclusive content.

Bidding is due to begin in the next Premier League football rights auction in February, and digital giants such as Amazon and Facebook could throw their hats in the ring for streaming rights.

However, Mr Allera said: "I wouldn't say [the deal with Sky] takes the pressure off at all... we believe in holding exclusive rights."

BT has spent more than £3.5bn on Champions League and Premier League football rights since 2012 in an attempt to compete with Sky.

For the 2016 to 2019 football seasons, BT agreed to pay £960m to show 42 Premier League games, and Sky agreed to pay £4.17bn to show 126 games.

For the seasons from 2019 to 2021, the number of games shown could rise to 190.

Sky boss Jeremy Darroch said: "This is great news for Sky customers who will be able to access all matches on Sky and BT channels from the Premier League, UEFA Champions League and Europa League directly with a single Sky TV subscription."

The new services will be available to BT and Sky customers from early 2019.

At present, BT customers can get BT TV via a box, an app, or online, and can only get a pared down version of Sky Sports.

Sky customers can get BT Sport at present, but only if they subscribe through BT.

Richard Broughton, research director at media analysts Ampere, called the deal "very unusual" because of the rivalry between the two firms, but said it was a consequence of the rising costs of sports rights.

"The new rights are up for renewal very soon and this is a pre-emptive shot from both companies to limit their exposure to damage should they not get key rights and also allow them to be a little less aggressive in their bidding."

Michael Hewson, an analyst with CMC Markets, said the BT-Sky deal seemed better for BT than Sky, "given that Sky will take BT's sport content while BT gets Sky's sports, cinema and Sky Atlantic channel, and could even gain more access to content further down the road".

'Huge disruptor'

The big online firms have been part of a seismic shift in how people access content.

On Thursday, Disney announced a deal to buy a large chunk of 21st Century Fox, including its 39% stake in Sky.

Media mogul Rupert Murdoch told Sky News he was selling Fox's entertainment assets in part due to the rise of online giants.

"[Amazon and Netflix] are growth companies... Amazon, I don't know how much they want to do. They are spending $5bn or $6bn I believe on new programmes, but it's basically to widen the appeal of [Amazon] Prime.

"Anyone who joins Prime seems to spend about $3,000 immediately on retail... you know, they are a huge disruptor if you look at what they're doing."

He said the new Fox company that remained would have the strength to bid for sports rights, but that all companies could be "threatened by big nonsensical bids from the likes of Facebook".
