Sky Sports has announced plans to upload Premier League goals and highlights to Twitter for all to enjoy. Sky has already secured rights to 126 live games over the next three seasons, and it now wants to bring that coverage to even more people.
Sky Sports has long been the place to find the best soccer coverage in the U.K., and for the 2016/17 season, Sky is stepping up its game even further. It has already confirmed plans to show extended game highlights on-demand on TV, mobile, and the web.
Now, thanks to a new partnership with Twitter, Sky will show “a selection of the key goals and moments from every Premier League game broadcast during the season.” The clips will be posted on the @SkyFootball account, which already has almost 3 million followers.
The best news is that all of these clips will be available to everyone. You won’t need a Sky Sports subscription, and you won’t have to cough up a monthly fee for any other service. However, there will be more to see if you are a Sky Sports customer.
Additional clips from every match shown will also be available through the Sky Sports Football Score app, where you will also find full highlights from all Premier League and Football League games after the final whistle. This will also include highlights from BT Sport games.
