BT is to show even more live top-flight football matches on its BT Sport TV channels after winning exclusive live rights to 42 Premier League matches in each of the 2016/17 to 2018/19 seasons. This is an increase of four matches per season on the current 38.
The new rights will see BT Sport show a live Saturday evening game every Premier League weekend from 2016/17 for three seasons. This will allow BT to build on its current Saturday programming and appeal to an even larger audience, having secured the prime evening TV viewing slot.
