Champions League final to be broadcast on YouTube

The Liverpool superstar has been in electric form this season but he insists he has not earned comparisons with the two Liga icons

"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.

The minimum amount of solar power required by the new standards wouldn't be enough to meet all the needs of most homes. Under the plan, some new homes, including those located under shade, will be exempt from having solar panels.

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.
