Sky Sports and BT have confirmed the first matches that will be shown live as part of the Premier League’s new pay-per-view plans in October, with Newcastle United vs Manchester United available for £14.95.
The Premier League confirmed on Friday that matches outside of the designated TV selections will be shown live to enable supporters to watch their teams in action, at any extra cost.
BT Sport have confirmed that these games will be priced at £14.95 each, with all profits going to Premier League clubs to support their loss of matchday revenue, with the matches available for purchase to everyone, regardless of any BT subscribers.
These initial plans have faced fierce criticism from supporters, who are being charged even more money to watch their teams from home, despite Premier League clubs spending £1.2billion in the summer transfer window.
Following the resumption of the 2019/20 Premier League season in June, every match was made available on TV for supporters through Sky Sports, BT Sport, Amazon Prime and the BBC, with a portion of matches made free-to-air.
With these plans coming into fruition after the international break BT have confirmed the matches that will be shown at an additional cost throughout October, with Sky also revealing the extra matches available on the weekend commencing October 17.
