Customers subscribed to Virgin Media's quadplay packages will be given access to ESPN from next month.
The new sports channel will be available to the broadband provider's 3.5 million digital TV customers from August 3rd, providing live football games from the English and Scottish Premier Leagues.
Virgin Media will provide the ESPN channel in both standard and high definition for £10 per month to subscribers on its M and L packages, while XL customers will get it for free.
ESPN is also making available its Classic channel, which features a range of great moments from UK and European sports.
Mark Schweitzer, chief commercial officer at Virgin Media, said: "This agreement solidifies Virgin Media's place as the home of TV entertainment and is unquestionably the best value TV deal for sports fanatics.
"We've got all the sports content you'd expect and adding the new ESPN channels to our line-up will mean our customers can watch all the football action they want."
Recently, Virgin Media announced plans for the launch of four new HD channels - Living, FX, MTV Networks International and National Geographic.
