Virgin Media will be offering the new Sky Sports 5 channel as part of its television bundles, it has been confirmed.

The service provider - which offers Sky Sports as part of a number of triple and quad-play packages - will be upgrading its offering with the new channel.

This means Virgin Media TV customers will be able to watch up to 600 European and international football matches per season on Sky Sports 5, which launches on Thursday June 12th.

They will have access to the news channel in both standard and high definition, in line with their package subscription.

Sky Sports 5 will become the home of the Euro 2016 qualifiers, the UEFA Champions League, and action from La Liga, the Coppa Italia, Copa del Rey and Eredivisie.

Viewers will also be able to watch shows including 'Revista De La Liga' and 'Champions League Weekly' on the new channel.

Barney Francis, Managing Director of Sky Sports, said Sky Sports 5 will take his firm's "unrivalled live football coverage" to the next level.

He claimed there has "never been a better time" to be a Sky Sports subscriber.
