BT to offer Premiership football "on demand"

Share

After a successful £84.3m joint bid with Sky, BT has won the right to show Premier League football "on demand", via its broandband TV service, BT Vision.

The three year deal with the FA gives BT the rights to show 242 "near-live" Premier League football matches each season – essentially every match not already being shown live. The deal commences with the 2007-8 season. Matches will be available "on demand" via broadband from 10pm on match days, with a windown time of up to 50 hours to watch the match.

BT Vision claims to be the world’s service offering digital terrestrial TV with on-demand film, TV and music programming. You can register your interest in the service now by visiting http://www.btvision.bt.com/
