Yahoo! has announced that they have acquired the rights to show highlights from the English Premier League. With a contract that stretches up to 2013, web-surfing footy fans will be able to watch highlights from every single match as of this coming August.
The news follows similar acquisitions by Yahoo! allowing them to show highlights from the NBA, PGA, MLB and NHL in the US. This, however, is the first major sporting deal for Yahoo! in the UK.
Heading over to Yahoo.co.uk at the beginning of next season will allow you to view weekend match highlights from midnight on a Sunday, or from midnight on the same day for mid-week games.
