Will the Premier League resume on YouTube?

Reports suggest Premier League in talks with BT Sport and Sky about showing matches on their YouTube channels

Premier League matches could be streamed on YouTube when matches resume, according to reports.

The Times says options being discussed by the Premier League and broadcasters include streaming matches on BT Sport and Sky’s YouTube channels.

The report adds the majority of the 92 remaining matches are expected to be shown on pay-TV, but there could be some that are selected to stream ‘free-to-air’.

A source told the newspaper, “The idea is that all the games would be available somewhere to watch as they are behind closed doors and YouTube is the obvious platform to show some games for free.

“Amazon would have the ability to get some games as they are a live broadcast licence holder as well.”

It’s expected that each of the remaining matches will be played separately in order to allow maximum TV coverage.

Of the remaining 92 matches, Sky has the rights to 39 matches and BT Sport eight under the current deal.

It’s thought football bosses are hoping for the Premier League to resume on 12th June.
