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.
