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.

MARK CHAPMAN TO FRONT SKY SPORTS CARABAO CUP GAMES

POPULAR presenter Mark Chapman will make his Sky Sports debut on Tuesday night as he anchors the broadcaster’s Carabao Cup coverage.

Sky has exclusive live rights to the competition again and will usually screen two matches from each round right through to the Wembley final in February.

Chapman will front the live coverage, but is expected to continue to work with the BBC on Match of the Day 2 and Radio 5 Live.

Sky’s director of football Gary Hughes said Chapman would bring “a wealth of football knowledge and broadcasting experience” to the Sky coverage.

Sky are showing Bradford v Hull and Sheffield Wednesday v Sunderland.

Free-to-air highlights are moving from Quest to ITV as part of their two-year deal with the EFL – see more HERE.

ITV’s new EFL highlights show makes its debut on Saturday night with a two-hour show promising every goal from all three divisions.

Hugh Woozencroft and Jules Breach will front the show after ITV have agreed a two-season deal for the highlights rights, taking over from Quest TV.

Woozencroft presents on Talksport and has previously worked for BBC Sport. Breach anchors England matches on Channel 4. Before that she was best known for her work on BT Sport Score.

They are promising to show them at 9pm on ITV 4 every Saturday (the same slot used by Quest) with repeats on the main ITV channel later that night and on Sunday mornings.

The rights also cover the Carabao Cup and Papa John’s Trophy.

ITV say each show will feature every goal from every EFL match and detailed analysis from a panel of expert pundits, although none of those have yet been announced.

While Quest’s coverage has been praised, ITV’s bigger reach is likely to give the EFL competitions a much larger audience.

Some fans had hoped Colin Murray, who fronted Quest’s coverage, would host ITV’s offering but it was widely expected ITV wanted their own presenters.

On Twitter, Woozencroft praised Murray and Quest’s coverage, but revealed the same production team would be working on the new ITV show.

Sky Sports will continues to provide live match coverage – all confirmed live EFL TV games are listed HERE
