CHRISTMAS AND NEW YEAR EFL TV GAMES CONFIRMED HERE

NO SKY RED BUTTON FOR THIS WEEK’S MIDWEEK CHAMPIONSHIP GAMES

Sky Sports is not providing the red button service to screen all Championship games for the first midweek set of fixtures from the competition this week.

Despite the EFL website stating Sky has the option to screen all the full regular midweek Championship fixtures via its red button and digital services, Sky is not listing any red button games until the second round of midweek games in mid-September.

Sky is showing full coverage of Millwall v Fulham (7.45pm, Tuesday) and West Brom v Sheffield United (8pm, Wednesday) on its Sky Sports Football channel. More limited coverage of Huddersfield v Preston (Tuesday, 7.45pm) will be shown on Sky Sports Arena. The Huddersfield game is from limited camera coverage and won’t have a full build-up and after-match show.

It’s not clear why Sky is not screening the games via the red button until the next round with reports suggesting the broadcaster initially listed them before pulling them from the schedule.

The games not on the main Sky Sports Football channel will be available on iFollow and goals are expected to be shown as they go in on Sky Sports News. Quest will also have midweek highlights from all three EFL divisions on Wednesday night.

SKY SPORTS SNATCH BUNDESLIGA GAMES FROM BT SPORT

Top-flight German football matches are to transfer from BT Sport to Sky Sports.

Sky has sealed a four-year deal for the UK and Republic of Ireland rights to Bundesliga games, a contract previously held by BT. As part of the deal it will also screen the German Supercup.

The biggest matches will be shown on Sky Sports Football with other likely to be across the rest of Sky’s channels including the red button service and Sky Sports Mix (which is available to Sky TV subscribers who don’t have the sports channels). Some matches will also stream free-to-air on the Sky Sports YouTube channel.

Sky’s first game sees champions Bayern Munich travel to Borussia Monchengladbach on Friday August 13 at 7.30pm while Borussia Dortmund v Eintracht Frankfurt is the Saturday 5.30pm Sky match.

Bundesliga moving to Sky is the latest football contract to be lost by BT Sport. BT lost its share of Scottish Premiership action to Sky while ITV takes over BT Sport’s FA Cup rights this season.

BT had said it would only bid for rights it thought were essential to its service in the future and has sealed a deal to keep the Champions League, Europa League and new Europa Conference League for the next four seasons.
