Premier League games on Pay Per View: Useful information

Premier League has announced non-televised fixtures will be available on pay-per-view; Pay-per-view games will generate some revenue for clubs in light of no matchday income due to the continued absence of fans in stadia

As a result of the continued absence of fans from stadia, the Premier League has announced that fixtures not originally due to be broadcast live, will now be made available via pay-per-view.

This decision has been taken by the Premier League to ensure fans can continue to watch their teams, and also to generate some revenue for clubs currently receiving no matchday income.

Sky Sports Box Office will air three of these matches this weekend:

  • Liverpool vs Sheffield United - Saturday, Kick-off 8pm.
  • Arsenal vs Leicester - Sunday, Kick-off 7.15pm.
  • Brighton vs West Brom - Monday, Kick-off 5.30pm.

These matches would traditionally have been played in the 3pm Saturday slot and not shown live on TV.

These matches are additional to the 140 broadcast live this season on Sky Sports for Sky Sports customers.

Each pay-per-view match will cost £14.95 in the UK, €16.95 in ROI.

How can I access these games?

Fans can purchase each match via Sky Sports Box Office, channel 491 on the Sky box, while Sky Sports Box Office HD is on channel 492. Subscribers on third party platforms can contact their service provider for more information on how to purchase these matches.
