A new agreement has been reached between BT Vision and the Entertainment and Sports Programming Network (ESPN.)

The deal will mean that the broadband TV service will broadcast ESPN's new UK channel, which will show Barclays Premier League and Clydesdale Bank Premier League football.

It will also screen a number of other sporting events, including international football matches.

ESPN has exclusive rights to 46 live Premier League matches in the 2009/10 season, as well as 23 matches every season from next year until 2013. It will also show 30 Scottish games per season.

Marc Watson, Chief Executive of Television and Online Services for BT Retail, said: "The new deal with ESPN is great news for customers.

"But the best news is that ESPN's top-quality sports coverage is provided by BT Vision at no additional cost to customers on our Bronze, Silver or Gold packages."

BT Vision also confirmed that its customers will have access to at least 28 exclusive on-demand Celtic or Rangers games from 10pm on match days.
