Sky Television has struck a deal to get English Premier League football back onto its satellite television service when the next season kicks off in August.
After months of speculation, spokeswoman Kirsty Way said Sky had secured the rights to show two football channels from Dubai-based broadcaster and EPL rights-holder Bein Sports, which is run by Al-Jazeera.
One channel will show EPL games, highlights and related shows in HD. The other channel will show matches from Spain's La Liga and France's Ligue 1, as well as games from the UEFA Champions League, UEFA Europa League and England's Championship League.
The two channels, together, will cost $11.96 a month and will be sold separately to Sky Sports.
What a joke. Oh well, the inexorable march towards this dinosaur of a company dying continues.
