PREMIER LEAGUE NEW SEASON TV DETAILS REVEALED

The Premier League has revealed the new season fixture list – and with it which games will be shown on live TV for the first weekend.

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.

Premier League officials have also 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.

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.

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