London, (APP - UrduPoint / Pakistan Point News - 5th Dec, 2023) The Premier League announced on Monday it had agreed a record £6.7 billion ($8.45 billion) domestic television rights deal for a four-year period starting from the 2025/26 season.
The current deal is reported to be worth around £5 billion over a three-year cycle and covers 200 matches per season.
Sky will screen a minimum of 215 live matches per season while TNT will broadcast 52. BBC Sport and its Match of the Day highlights programme is part of the new deal.
A Saturday afternoon blackout, designed to protect attendances in the lower leagues, will remain but for the first time all matches outside of those scheduled for 3:00 pm on Saturday will be screened live.
Despite the eye-catching headline figure, the Premier League is selling significantly more games over a longer period.
"We have enjoyed record audiences and attendances in recent seasons, and we know that their continued innovation will drive more people to watch and follow the Premier League."
