Sky has signed the rights to broadcast hundreds of live matches from Serie A (Italy's premier league) for the next three seasons. For 2018/19, 2019/20 and 2020/21, it will show 266 matches exclusively live.

It will show seven out of 10 games on match day. They will be available in 4K on Sky Q.

Sadly, they'll only be available to watch in Italy.

Sky will pay about a third less for each game than under the current deal.

For the first time, games will be shown across Sky's different technology platforms: satellite, digital terrestrial television (DTT), streamed via Now TV and across fibre broadband.

"With this agreement we will be giving our customers in Italy more exclusive football than ever before," said Jeremy Darroch, Sky's group chief executive. "Alongside our recently announced plans for our Italian business, customers will be able to enjoy Sky on every single platform and access the content they love in ways that suit them. Taken together, we are confident we can reach even more sports fans in Italy, increasing our sports subscribers, and we have never been in a better position to grow."
