Latest Premier League TV selections confirmed for April and May

The latest Premier League TV selections have been confirmed by, Amazon Prime, TNT and Sky Sports for December and January.

However the deadline has come for a batch TV picks to be made, so that clubs can inform fans, deal with tickets and sort travel arrangements out.

Take a look below at what has been chosen along with the rest of the season’s selected games for broadcast…

STATEMENT:

The broadcast selections have been announced for live TV in the UK for the rest of the Premier League matches in December, and up to Matchweek 21 in January 2024.

As in previous seasons, special arrangements have been made to allow more time between games played across the three festive Matchweeks.

This will allow greater time for players to recover, with the rest periods between Matchweeks 18, 19 and 20 being increased to ensure that no club plays within 60 hours of another match.

Broadcast selections for Matchweek 22 (to be played on 30-31 January 2024) will be announced with the February selections at a later date.

Why is there a Saturday football blackout in the UK for live streams and TV broadcasts?

Since before the formation of the Premier League, Saturday 3pm kick offs have been forbidden to be televised in the UK, with broadcasters only allowed to show early and late matches on national TV.

Though the 3pm kick off is the slot in which the majority of weekend matches are played with a number of games happening at the same time, they are never broadcast live on television due to the ‘football blackout’.

The United Kingdom is the only place to prohibit the broadcast of 3pm Saturday kick offs.

The 3pm blackout is said to be tradition, with Sky Sports’ Soccer Saturday – the go to show where a panel of pundits report in-game action to viewers with none of the match footage actually being showed.

This is also why ratings for Match of the Day remain ever-popular, though numbers are made tougher to achieve due to online streams, footage of goals appearing within seconds online and highlights uploaded to Sky Sports’ YouTube just after 5pm Saturdays.

Major European leagues in France, Spain, Germany and Italy don’t observe such a blackout, and there has been sufficient evidence to prove that closed periods do not affect the outcome of lower league football match attendance.

If anything, you’re more likely to watch more Premier League games if your based in North America or Asia rather than your own country (UK), despite the England priding themselves as a nation who are the home of football.

In February 2011, Advocate General Kokott of the European Court of Justice launched an investigation into the “closed periods” and concluded that they did not affect match attendance at lower league games.

“It is, in fact, doubtful whether closed periods are capable of encouraging attendance at matches and participation in matches,” she said in a statement .

“Both activities have a completely different quality to the following of a live transmission on television. It has not been adequately shown to the Court that the closed periods actually encourage attendance at and participation in matches.

“No closed periods were adopted in France, Germany, Italy and Spain, or in Northern Ireland, that is to say, within the sphere of influence of English football.”

In 2016, Ofcom launched an investigation into the rights of televised football and surveyed football fans about whether they wanted to see a change.
