The Premier League has completed the last piece in the jigsaw of its sale of domestic TV rights for the next three seasons, with Sky Sports planning to offer fans a “box set” of highlights of all their team’s matches that can be dipped into at any time.
Under the deal for “near live extended highlights”, which covers all 212 Premier League matches not already shown live on television, the broadcaster will for the first time offer a dedicated section for each club featuring every match they have played from next season.
When the near live category was introduced, which allows one match to be shown from 8pm on a Saturday and every other game from 10.30pm, some saw it as a rival to Match of the Day’s highlights.
However, while modestly popular, it never became a threat to the long running BBC highlights show. Instead, Sky now hopes fans will also treat it as an on demand resource to be dipped into throughout the week in order to catch up on long form highlights.
Dedicated sections for each Premier League club in its on demand section will also include club news, features and match action.
