The announcement signals that the Premier League has decided to discontinue its initiative to make games available through a pay-per-view model.

Following the rearrangement of the Premier League’s fixtures, Sky Sports will broadcast 13 live games over the remaining two rounds this month, including Liverpool vs Leicester on Sunday November 22.

In a statement, the league confirmed:

‘Working with our broadcast partners, and with the support of clubs, all matches will be shown via existing Sky Sports, BT Sport, Amazon and BBC services. Details of the first additional selections covering the period until the end of November are announced today. December and January selections will follow in due course alongside our usual UK live matches.

‘There is a full schedule of Premier League games over the festive period and clubs are committed to an accessible solution for fans. These plans have been made with the cooperation of our broadcast partners, working with us to deliver these additional matches while stadiums are missing the supporters who are such an integral part of the game.

‘The agreement will be reviewed in the new year following consultation with clubs, broadcast partners and in line with any decisions made by Government regarding the return of spectators to stadiums.

‘The Premier League and our clubs remain committed to the safe return of fans as soon as possible.’
