Through this three-year agreement, LaLiga will become the first football league in the world to have an exclusive channel that offers all the matches live in the territory.
Premier Sports and LaLiga announced a historic agreement that will bring to the United Kingdom and Ireland the retransmission of the matches of the highest Spanish category of LaLiga Santander through multiple platforms until the end of the 2021/22 season.
LaLiga will thus become the first football league in the world that will have an exclusive channel broadcasting 24 hours a day, seven days a week, offering all the matches live in the United Kingdom and Ireland through the main TV platforms.
LaLigaTV will be available on Premier Sports as part of its Sky TV channel package and the OTT Premier Player streaming service for £ 11 per month or £ 99 per year.
Fans will also have the option of adding LaLigaTV as an independent service through Premier Sports, priced at £ 5.99 per month or £ 49 per year, once the channel is officially presented on Sky TV and Premier Player during the upcoming weeks.
In addition, starting next week, the free channel FreeSports will broadcast selected content of the matches, as well as the weekly program LaLiga Highlights, which will cover the highlights of each game after each day, including the best goal of each week, best goalkeeper and best player.
LaLigaTV is a 24/7 English channel that will broadcast all LaLiga Santander matches live along with first-class weekly programming hours, including LaLiga World, VIVA LaLiga and The LaLiga Show.
Javier Tebas, president of LaLiga said: “LaLiga is enjoyed all over the world, with especially passionate followers in the United Kingdom and Ireland. Through our long-term partnership with Premier Sports, we are very happy to offer Spanish football fans the opportunity to enjoy the best LaLiga content in the world in various formats, including through OTT and the Premier Sports linear television offer, as well as our own channel in English, LaLigaTV ”.
“We hope that football fans from both countries enjoy unprecedented access to the best league in the world.”
Richard Sweeney, CEO of Premier Sports, added: “We are delighted to announce this truly unique and innovative agreement with LaLiga that brings us to the beginning of a new and exciting chapter for Spanish football in the United Kingdom.”
“We are incredibly proud to partner with LaLiga to start broadcasting the world’s largest league for UK and Ireland viewers on Premier Sports and through the LaLiga and Premier Sports channel they announce their agreement in the UK and Ireland that includes the launch of the independent channel of LaLigaTV in English ”.
