Manchester United and Newcastle first match broadcast on pay


The match between Newcastle and Manchester United, which will be held on the 17th of October, in the fifth round of the Premier League, will be the first match to be broadcast on the pay-per-view system announced by the Premier League.

The Premier League announced on Friday that all the matches that will take place in October will be available for live broadcast on British channels, but there are select matches that will be broadcast on the pay-per-view system.

Club fans will have to pay £ 14.95 to watch their favorite team’s match, if their team’s match is one of the matches chosen under the pay-per-view system that will be broadcast on British Sky Sports and BT Sports.

There will be 3 selected matches that will be broadcasted on a pay-per-view system during the matches of the fifth, sixth and seventh rounds, which will be held between October and early November, while the remaining five matches in the same rounds will be broadcast free of charge through the rest of the network channels.

The Premier League said in its statement that the 20 Premier League clubs agreed to this temporary solution so that fans would be allowed to attend matches on the stadium.

The British Sky Sports network announced the three matches that will be broadcast under the pay-per-view system during the next three rounds, as follows:

Fifth round

Leicester and Aston Villa – Sunday 18 October.
