BT Sport has secured on-demand online and mobile clip rights for the UEFA Champions League and UEFA Europa League from 2015-16.

As a result of the latest agreement, the broadcaster - which recently agreed a £900 million deal to air 350 European football matches per season - will control the online highlights.

This means BT Sport subscribers will be able to watch clips of the action from all matches on their mobile, tablet or laptop, via the BT Sport app and www.btsport.com.

BT Sport will share on-demand and mobile footage with News UK as part of a co-exclusive agreement.

John Petter, Chief Executive at BT Consumer, said BT Sport has already pledged to make UEFA Champions League and UEFA Europa League action "far more accessible and affordable for customers".

"The addition of clips rights means that fans need not worry about missing any of the vital moments from matches," he stated.

The latest deal continues BT Sport's major push on football. As well as securing the full rights to the two UEFA club competitions, the broadcaster offers Barclays Premier League, FA Cup, non-league and women's action, plus international matches and games from several of the world's top leagues.

Just four months after launch, more than two million customers have signed up for BT Sport.

With Virgin Media TV offering access on a wholesale basis, the three channels - BT Sport 1, BT Sport 2 and ESPN - reach around four million homes in total.

BT customers can watch the action for free - either on their television if they are a BT TV subscriber, or online if they are not.
