The Barclays Premier League starts this Saturday, but BT Sport and Sky Sports have already announced their fixtures for October and November.

Sky has bagged the rights to a lot of derbies, including Everton vs Liverpool, Man Utd vs Man City and Arsenal vs Tottenham.

In all, Sky will show 22 games in October and November, bringing its total to 46 live matches in the first four months of the season.

BT Sport, meanwhile, will broadcast six games throughout the two months. These include West Bromwich Albion away to Crystal Palace, Liverpool at Tottenham, and Chelsea at Tottenham.

Sky Sports managing director Barney Francis said: "As Sky Sports adds more live matches to the schedule it only builds the excitement ahead of a new football season. Rivalry adds to a sporting contest and with a number of derby matches in October and November there is a lot to look forward to."

Simon Green, head of BT Sport, said: "Once again football fans can look forward to exciting Barclays Premier League games on BT Sport, including those teams competing in Europe and two in recently promoted sides."

BT has a feather in its cap, however: 4K. It will show the opening game of the season on BT Sport Ultra HD in the 4K resolution, which has four times as many pixels as standard HD. If you want to subscribe, it costs £15 a month.

Sky is also rumoured to have a 4K set-top box up its sleeve.
