Sky Sports has boosted the appeal of its TV and broadband bundles by signing a new deal securing Premier League football highlights for the next three years.

From the 2013-14 season, the broadcaster will be able to show the best action from all 226 Premier League matches not shown live on television.

Sky will also be able to broadcast the goals and key moments on other programmes such as Goals on Sunday and Soccer Saturday.

From August 2013, Sky will offer a full 90-minute replay of the best Saturday 3pm match from 8pm that evening.

In addition to 'Game of the Day', viewers will be able to use the 'Match Choice' service - where they can watch 45 minutes of highlights from any Saturday 3pm fixture on the interactive red button service at 10pm.

Barney Francis, Managing Director of Sky Sports, said the new highlights deal is "fantastic news" for Sky Sports viewers.

"We’ll give fans the first chance to see extended highlights of all the matches every Saturday, as well as the key moments throughout the week," he stated.

"Add these rights to our 116 live matches from next season, which include MNF and Super Sunday double-headers, and Sky Sports truly remains the home of the Barclays Premier League."

Mr Francis noted that the deal is the latest in a series of rights agreements that has seen Sky secure "an unrivalled offering of sports" across the UK and Ireland.

"In 2013 alone, our viewers can enjoy live Barclays Premier League and UEFA Champions League football, Ashes cricket home and away, British & Irish Lions tour, three of golf’s Majors, F1 and the Solheim Cup," he stated.

Sky Sports viewers are able to watch over 500 live football matches a season from international, European and domestic competitions.

This line-up includes the UEFA Champions League, Barclays Premier League, npower Football League, Capital One Cup, Scottish Premier League and La Liga.

The coverage is available across TV, mobile, online and tablet devices through the Sky Go service.
