Two weeks after shaking the pay-TV and free-to-air coverage enjoyed by BSkyB and ITV, BT Sport has cemented its position as the UK home of the UEFA Champions League and UEFA Europa League after winning co-exclusive on demand online and mobile clip rights to all 350 matches per season. The clip rights are shared with News UK.
From 2015/16 BT Sport subscribers will be able to watch clips of the action afterwards from all the matches on their mobile, tablet or laptop via the BT Sport app and www.btsport.com.
John Petter, chief executive, BT Consumer, said: “BT Sport has already pledged to make UEFA Champions League and UEFA Europa League action far more accessible and affordable for customers. The addition of clips rights means that fans need not worry about missing any of the vital moments from matches.”
