Sky Sports has added 16 live Barclays Premier League matches to its December and New Year line-up as it continues its biggest ever season of live football.
There are at least three live fixtures a week on Sky Sports throughout December, including Tottenham Hotspur v Liverpool, Arsenal v Chelsea and Chelsea v Liverpool.
Not only does Sky Sports have more live coverage with 116 matches in total, its audience has hit a new record in the early part of the season. Average viewers for the first 23 live Premier League matches on Sky Sports are up 20 per cent on last year, helping Sky Sports record its best ever start to a Premier League season.
In 2014, viewers can look forward to 57 more live matches between January and May, making Sky Sports the home to more than three-quarters of all televised fixtures over the remainder of the season.
Barney Francis, managing director of Sky Sports, said: “The great sport keeps on coming for Sky Sports viewers. This is our biggest ever season of Premier League football and we’re off to a record-breaking start with our audiences well up on last year. We are the unrivalled home of the Premier League and viewers are responding really positively to having access to the widest range of must-see fixtures.”
