The 24/7 English-language channel LaLigaTV has been made available in the UK and Ireland via Premier Player, the OTT service operated by Premier Sports.
As first revealed on 10 September, the strategic tie-up between Spain’s top flight and Premier will see all LaLiga games streamed live in HD. Subscriptions are being offered on a monthly or annual basis.
As well as live matches, LaLigaTV includes the daily studio shows LaLiga World, VIVA LaLiga and The LaLiga Show.
Also as part of the deal, Premier Sports will continue to broadcast one live LaLiga match per round via its free-to-air channel FreeSports, starting with this Sunday’s Deportivo Alavés vs. RC Celta de Vigo fixture.
A weekly LaLiga highlights programme will also be made available.
Melcior Soler, audiovisual director at LaLiga said: “We’re pleased to be entering the next phase of our strategic broadcast agreement with Premier Sports.
“For both casual and devoted fans of Spanish football, LaLigaTV offers the best quality programming, with household names providing expert commentary and analysis, as well as all available live matches in full HD.”
Richard Sweeney, the CEO of Premier Sports added: “Premier Sports customers and LaLiga fans can access all live matches with full studio analysis and daily live shows from the world’s greatest league in this truly unique partnership.”
LaLigaTV will also launch on Sky as part of the Premier Sports package in the coming months.
