Sky and BT retain Premier League rights in £4.46bn deal
BT could yet pick up some of the outstanding packages, saying in a statement that it "will continue to engage with the Premier League regarding the remaining rights".
Sky and BT have signed deals worth a combined £4.46bn to show 160 live Premier League football matches for three seasons from 2019-20.
