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.

EVERY Champions League, Europa League and Europa Conference League game will continue to be available LIVE only on BT Sport.

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.

BBC LAND CHAMPIONS LEAGUE HIGHLIGHTS WHILE BT SPORT & AMAZON PRIME VIDEO GRAB LIVE MATCHES

AMAZON Prime Video will show some live Champions League games while the BBC will screen free-to-air highlights as part of a new UK TV deal confirmed by UEFA.

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.

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.

The new deal won’t kick in from until 2024 so the upcoming season’s Champions and Europa League live matches and highlights will all be on BT Sport under the same arrangements as last season’s.

The BBC’s capture of highlights will see them return to free-to-air broadcast of the competition for the first time in three years. BT’s current deal covers live and highlights coverage so their dedicated highlights programme was only available to subscribers, although they did make short video highlights packages of matches available free online and via YouTube. Previously highlights were available on ITV.

Although Amazon’s rights will only see them show one game per round, it will mean they now will show top teams all season round. Their only other rights for live football are two entire match days of Premier League football of one midweek match day and the Boxing Day fixtures.
