BT has bolstered its credentials as a sports broadcaster with the launch of the BT Sport Extra service, serving up a diet of matches from the German Bundesliga, French Ligue 1, Portugese Primera Liga, and Brasileirao, the Brazilian premier league.

Available as a standalone channel or via the red button, BT Sport Extra is automatically included as part of your BT Sport subscription, so it's completely free if you're already signed up already.

At present, BT Sport Extra is only available to Sky and BT customers. It will arrive on Virgin Media "in the coming weeks", but BT hasn't announced an exact date.

A small number of BT TV customers who get BT Sport through their TV aerial instead of through their broadband connection also can't access BT Sport Extra.

"Reach is at the heart of BT Sport and we are continually looking at new ways to enhance our viewers' experience," said Simon Green, head of BT Sport.

"BT Sport Extra provides sports fans with access to even more live sporting action whether that's on TV, via the red button, app or online."

The next match to be shown on BT Sport Extra is Caen vs PSG in the French Ligue 1, on Wednesday night at 8pm.

You can find it by pressing the red button on your Sky remote, or by heading to channel 527 on the BT TV guide. Alternatively, you can watch it live online or via the BT Sport app.
