WHY ARE THE CHAMPIONS LEAGUE GAMES NOT ON AMAZON PRIME VIDEO AND BBC THIS SEASON?

THE Champions League is back, but if you were expecting to catch games on Amazon Prime Video and free-to-air highlights on the BBC you’ll be disappointed.

Yes, you are right in thinking that Prime Video won the rights to show some live Champions League games while the BBC secured a highlights agreement as part of a new UK TV deal confirmed by UEFA earlier in the summer.

BUT the new deal won’t kick in from until the 2024-25 season, so this campaign and next year’s will see Champions and Europa League live matches and highlights all on BT Sport under the same arrangements as last season’s.

Even from then BT Sport has retained the bulk of Champions League live rights with Amazon showing the first pick Tuesday night game from each round of fixtures – 17 games in all when the new expanded format for the competition kicks in from 2024-25.

The BBC will screen a Wednesday night highlights programme through the deal and will also have highlights of the final.

Apart from the Amazon Tuesday night first pick game, BT has bagged all other matches as well as the Europa and Europa Conference League competitions under the new rights.

BT Sport also has the highlights rights and shows dedicated highlights shows on its subscription channel. However, it makes mini highlights packages of matches available free-to-air via its website, app and YouTube channel soon after games have finished.

BT is expected to continue to make the finals of all three tournaments available free-to-air as well.

ARE THE CHAMPIONSHIP GAMES ON THE SKY RED BUTTON?

THERE’S a full midweek round of Championship fixtures for Tuesday, September 13 and Wednesday, September 14 – with all games available on Sky either on the main channels or the red button.

Sky’s contract with the EFL for live TV rights allows them to show games they’ve not selected as their main channel matches for full midweek rounds. Sky have Reading v Sunderland and Preston v Burnley as their main matches getting the full Sky Sports coverage with more limited coverage of West Brom v Birmingham on the Sky Sports Arena channel.

All others will have single-camera coverage with no replays on Sky Sports’ red button and app.

ITV 4 will have highlights on Wednesday night from 10.30pm.

Goals and key moments from the Championship will also be shown as they happen on Soccer Special on Sky Sports News.

The Championship midweek games are available to watch live via clubs’ official websites for a fee.

ITV TO SHOW TEN LIVE FREE-TO-AIR LALIGA GAMES A SEASON

ITV will show live free-to-air LaLiga action after striking a deal with UK rights holders Premier Sports.

Premier show all LaLiga games live in the UK through its main channels and the LaLiga TV streaming service.

But under a three-year deal, ITV will show ten matches per season from Spanish football’s top-flight division.

ITV say their games will feature either Barcelona, Real Madrid or Atletico Madrid. The first match of the new agreement will see ITV 4 screen Real Sociedad v Barcelona on Sunday August 21. Coverage will start at 8.30pm ahead of the 9pm kick-off.

Matches will either be shown on the main ITV channel, ITV 4 and will also be available on the broadcaster’s streaming service ITV Hub.

WHEN WILL THE CHAMPIONSHIP AND EFL TV GAMES BE ANNOUNCED BY SKY SPORTS?

THE EFL has confirmed the timetable it hopes to reveal which games Sky have been selected for live TV screening.

The league is stressing the dates are “illustrative” only and may change, but for the games up to the end of February it hopes to give a minimum five weeks’ notice of TV changes which then falls to four and three weeks’ notice for the climax of the season.

It means the next set of games for the remainder of August should be revealed by the end of this week.

Sky has the exclusive live TV rights for the EFL’s three divisions as well as the Carabao Cup and Papa John’s Trophy. Highlights are moving to ITV with their first show on Saturday July 30 at 9pm on ITV 4 – see HERE

WHEN WILL SKY AND BT ANNOUNCE THEIR NEXT SET OF PREMIER LEAGUE TV GAMES?

PREMIER League officials have revealed the provisional dates it hopes to announce which games have been selected for live TV broadcast.

However, due to the complicated nature of the picking system for broadcasters, policing arrangements and games being moved to accommodate cup competitions, the league has struggled to stick to the timetable in the past.

The 2022-23 season will see the same TV arrangements as the previous year as part of a rolled over new three-year deal with Sky, BT and Amazon – see HERE.

Sky will again show 128 live games and has the first pick of all the regular weekend rounds, typically screening up to five matches a weekend across Friday Night Football, Saturday Night Football, Super Sunday and Monday Night Football. BT again has the Saturday lunchtime matches including a number of second pick matches.

Amazon Prime Video has two complete rounds of games (20 matches in all) – an October midweek round and the Boxing Day which are likely to be staggered across different times slots and dates as in previous seasons – the games Amazon have can be seen HERE.

Free-to-air highlights will again be shown thrown the BBC’s Match of the Day.
