Sky Sports has further strengthened its coverage of the upcoming Barclays Premier League season by winning the rights to show clips from all 380 games of the season across its various digital platforms.

The company has signed a three-year agreement starting from the 2016-17 season that will allow subscribers to access clips on both mobile and online.

The terms of the deal will also see Sky enter an exclusive distribution partnership with News UK, which will make content available across digital services for The Sunday Times, The Times and The Sun newspapers.

Mike Darcey, CEO, News UK, said: "We are delighted to be teaming up with Sky Sports for this exclusive distribution partnership, which gives us the green light to continue bringing Premier League clips to our engaged customers for another three years."

He added that it had been a competitive process, attracting interest from across the industry.

It is sure to be seen as the latest boost to Sky's live Premier League coverage, after it acquired five of the available broadcasting packages in February to secure rights from 2016 to 2019, increasing the number of live games to 126 per season.

Sky Sports Managing Director Barney Francis said the news of adding clips to its digital platforms would help to further enhance its claim to being the "home of the Premier League".

He added: "The way people watch sport is changing rapidly and this agreement ensures Sky Sports will continue to offer the best coverage across TV, mobile, online and social media. 

"However they choose to watch, our customers will have all the defining moments from the Premier League at their fingertips for years to come.”

As well as showing 116 Premier League matches over the coming season, Sky is also set to show 127 games from the Sky Bet Football League, as well as more than 30 games from the Scottish Professional Football League and coverage of the Capital One Cup.
