So if you havn't got sly tv you aren't going to be able to see
any games starting from next season..:mad:

Sky Sports has been awarded a new deal for the UEFA Champions League that will offer even more live coverage than ever.

Under the three-year agreement, which covers the 2009-10, 2010-11 and 2011-12 seasons, Sky Sports will show more live UEFA Champions League football than ever before.


With more midweek matches than the current deal, additional qualifying matches and the last 16 stage played across eight match-days, there will be an increase in both the number of live games and the number of nights of European football on Sky Sports.


The new deal will give Sky live coverage of up to 15 live matches per week, across both match nights, including:



Exclusive Tuesdays

Every Tuesday match exclusively live throughout the tournament, bringing up to eight live games on Group Stage nights.



Wednesdays

All but one match exclusively live each Wednesday throughout the tournament, with up to seven live games on Group Stage nights.



Semi-Finals and Final

Exclusive live coverage of one leg from each Semi-Final and shared live coverage of the UEFA Champions League Final and the UEFA Super Cup.



Qualifying

For the first time, live coverage from the final round of Qualifying matches in August. Up to five live matches on each Tuesday and four on each Wednesday of the two-leg ties.



In addition to the live rights, Sky has also been awarded cross-platform rights for use on mobile and broadband as well as highlights.

I presume that they out-bid the other competitiors and weren't 'awarded' the rights simply for their shall we say outstanding contribution to modern day sports coverage :rolleyes:

Sky are an absolute disgrace. I suppose we'll end up buying it next season though.

I personally thing ITV is hopeless. Poor commentry, poor standard of the analysis team. BBC is much better, and there aren't adverts. Thats how football should be, so you can watch the whole match and not have to put up with adverts. I'd pay extra for that.
Looks like i'll be buying sky now.

Does this make a difference? I wouldn't know because Im a forigner but does it really matter who shows the game?
ITV comes in the main tv package that most households in Britain have.
You have to pay a lot extra to get the Sky channels, so basically hundreds of thousands of people wont be able to watch it in their homes.:(
