Sky and BT Sport pay £4.464bn for first tranche of Premier League TV packages
The Premier League has announced details for five of the seven live television packages, with BT Sport and Sky paying a combined £4.464bn.
The deal means that Sky will host 128 matches starting from the 2019/20 season up to and including 2021/22, while BT Sport has purchased only one package so far of 32 matches.
“To have achieved this investment with two packages of live rights remaining to sell is an outcome that is testament to the excellent football competition delivered by the clubs.
“We will now continue the sales process to deliver the best possible outcome for the remaining packages of rights in the UK and throughout the rest of the world.
