LaLiga and Premier Sports have officially confirmed that LaLigaTV, the UK’s first dedicated channel showing all live content from a top international football league, will be available to Sky subscribers in the UK from Monday 13th January.
In a special introductory offer, LaLigaTV will broadcast free of charge for all 8.5 million Sky TV households, as well as commercial premises across the UK, for two whole matchdays of LaLiga Santander in mid-January.
Therefore Sky subscribers will be able to enjoy enticing matchups such as Real Betis vs. Real Sociedad and FC Barcelona vs. Granada CF on Matchday 20, or Real Valladolid vs. Real Madrid and Sevilla FC vs. Granada CF on Matchday 21.
Melcior Soler, Audiovisual Director at LaLiga said: “We’re proud to launch LaLigaTV, our own dedicated linear channel in the United Kingdom, together with our broadcast partner Premier Sports. Fans in the UK will soon see why LaLigaTV provides viewers such tremendous value, offering all of LaLiga Santander, all in one place. This includes every available live match, plus expert analysis and world-class programming, with daily studio shows, archive footage, features and documentaries on Spanish football, and much, much more.”
Available as an individual subscription channel via Sky, LaLigaTV will continue to provide round-the-clock coverage of Spain’s top-flight LaLiga Santander, including exclusive broadcast of all live matches in the United Kingdom from January 2020. Following the initial two-week free trial period, the channel will be available to Sky TV subscribers for just £5.99 per month (as a standalone HD channel) or £11.99 per month when purchased in a bundle alongside Premier Sports 1 and Premier Sports 2 HD channels.
