premier league football

BT Sport and Sky Sports have announced their fixtures for the 2014/2015 Premier League.

The action kicks off on August 16, when BT Sport will show Manchester United vs Swansea at 12:45pm. At 5:30pm that day, Sky Sports will show its first game of the season, Arsenal vs Crystal Palace.

Sky will show 43 live Premier League clashes to customers with Sky, Virgin TV, BT TV and TalkTalk TV boxes.

BT Sport will show 12 matches across Sky, Virgin TV, and BT TV.

The two broadcasters are locked in a battle for viewers. In June, Sky launched Sky Sports 5, the seventh channel in its Sky Sports package. It will be the dedicated home to European football, including the UEFA 2016 qualifiers, the UEFA Champions League, La Liga, Coppa Italia, and Copa del Rey.

It will also show live coverage of the Dutch league Eredivisie.

BT Sport, meanwhile, recently announced that Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho will be an ambassador and pundit for the service.

He will make football programmes, provide a manager's perspective on major incidents, and act as an ambassador for the service.

Virgin Media recently announced it's offering Sky Sports channels for less than Sky charges. Sign up to its Season Ticket, and you'll get Sky Sports 1-5 and Sky F1 for 40 per cent less than the usual cost.
