Champions League final to be broadcast on YouTube

TV3 secure rights to Champions League and Europa League next season

"To secure the Champions League first choice games on Tuesday nights for the next three seasons means that Irish audiences will continue to have free to air access to the world's leading club competition".

TV3, which was acquired by Virgin Media in 2015, said yesterday that it had bought the exclusive Irish rights for 327 matches a season across the Uefa Champions League and Europa League over the next three years.

The May 26 showpiece event also be available to watch free of charge online via BTSport.com, the BT Sport app and in 4K UHD via the BT Sport YouTube channel.

The same applies to the Europa League final, which takes place tomorrow night (Wednesday 16 May) and sees (look away now, Arsenal fans) Atletico Madrid take on Marseille in Lyon.

However, TV3 and Virgin Media failed to clarify whether their coverage of Europa and Uefa matches will be a free service or pay-to-view.

Kia to introduce 48v mild-hybrid diesel technology
If the battery has sufficient charge, the combustion engine turns off automatically during in-gear deceleration and braking. By electronically controlling the MHSG using the inverter, the system switches between two modes: "motor" and "generator".

The broadcaster, which has exclusive rights to show the match in the United Kingdom, says it will be streaming the match live and in 4K for subscribers and non-subscribers.

BT Sport subscribers will also be able to enjoy 360-degree highlights on the app throughout the games.

The final of next year's Champions League will be held in Atlético Madrid's stadium.

The match is showing in the United Kingdom on BT Sport 2 - but BT are also offering a FREE live stream on YouTube for non-subscribers.

If Virgin does opt to stream some matches exclusively online it will represent a further move towards such a system in football, with Facebook and Amazon both already having made tentative - but so far unsuccessful - moves towards the Premier League market.
