TV3 Is Going To Dominate Irish TV Coverage Of The Champions League

However, TV3 and Virgin Media failed to clarify whether their coverage of Europa and Uefa matches will be a free service or pay-to-view. A spokeswoman for TV3 declined to comment on how the extra matches will be shown.

TVÉ previously held the rights to the Tuesday night matches and TV3 held the rights to Wednesday games. The UEFA Europa League final will also be made available to millions of fans who do not yet subscribe.

"To secure the Champions League first choice games on Tuesday nights for the next three seasons means that Irish audiences will continue to have free to air access to the world's leading club competition".

Viewers in Ireland will be able to watch the Champions League final on RTE - but not for much longer.

For subscribers, the game is being screened on BT Sport 2, BT Sport 2 HD and in 4K on the BT Sport UHD channel.


In other news, BT Sport will make the Champions League final between Liverpool and Real Madrid available to watch for free online.

Are we heading towards an era where every match could be streamed on YouTube?

YouTube's Head of Sport in EMEA, Tomos Grace, said: "Football is by far the most popular sport on YouTube and it doesn't get more premium than the UEFA Champions League and UEFA Europa League finals".

A spokesperson for Virgin told the Irish Independent: "Virgin Media and TV3 are simply announcing this landmark rights deal - which has just been established - and they will then be providing more information in due course".

The final UEFA Champions League match between English football club Liverpool and Spain's Real Madrid is to be shown free by United Kingdom broadband ISP BT via YouTube, the BTSport TV app and other mediums.
