Sky has secured the rights to show goals from every Premier League game on its mobile TV platforms. So if you're a Sky subscriber, you'll be able to watch near-live highlights on your mobile.

It's also signed an exclusive distribution deal with News UK – another Rupert Murdoch organisation – that will see clips made available across The Sun, The Times and The Sunday Times digital services.

The deal will come into effect at the beginning of the 2016/17 season.

Sky has the rights to show 126 live Premier League games per season between 2016/17 and 2018/19.

BT will show 42 games per season on its BT Sport channels.

Both companies recently announced their first fixtures of the coming season.

"Sky Sports is the home of the Premier League and this will allow us to offer our customers even more content across mobile and online," said Barney Francis, Sky Sports managing director.

"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."

Sky recently launched its Sky Sports Month Pass, which lets customers of Now TV sign up to its sports package on a month-by-month rolling contract with no obligation to stay.
