Premier League to launch 24/7 TV content service

The Premier League are launching their own global TV content service which will be available across the world - but not in Britain - from next season. The new channel, produced by Premier League's own production company, will build on the success of the league in securing more than £1billion in overseas rights - a 80% increase on the previous television deal.

The channel, a joint venture with global sports producer TWI, will be a 24-hour, seven-days-a-week service with news, studio discussions, individual programmes and classic matches.

In another development, it is understood that a proposal by some clubs to have a play-off for the fourth Champions League spot is unlikely to progress.

Discussions among the 20 league chairmen has however seen growing doubts emerge about the concept with concerns about the integrity of the competition and an already crowded fixture schedule.
