BT has announced the first batch of live Premier League games set to air on its dedicated sports channels when they launch next month, as the UK’s latest sports broadcaster shows its hand in its battle with Sky Sports.
Heading the line-up of games, all of which kick off at 12.45 on Saturdays from August 17th, include the London derby between Tottenham and Chelsea on September 28th.

Local bragging rights will also be at stake on November 28th, when the Merseyside derby sees a David Moyles-less Everton host Liverpool as they bid to break a disappointing run of four consecutive seasons without qualifying for the Champions League.
Simon Green, director of BT Sport, said: “We are thrilled that BT Sport viewers will be able to enjoy these top-of-the-table matches free with BT broadband.
“In the first 13 Premier League rounds until December, we will show the biggest clubs at least twice including Tottenham taking on serious title contenders in both matches, against Manchester United and Chelsea.
“We have Manchester United twice, Manchester City twice, Arsenal twice, Chelsea twice, Everton twice and Liverpool three times."
BT Sport will show 38 games over the course of the season, along with coverage of the FA Cup, UEFA Europa League and action from Scotland, Germany, Italy, France, Brazil, Australia and the USA.
