Tv Deal Announced

The Premier League unveiled their new £1 billion television deal in London on Friday.

The BBC have won back the rights to show highlights of the Premiership from the 2004-05 season, with Sky winning the rights to all live games.

Everton Chairman Sir Philip Carter met with his Premiership counterparts to discuss the deal and they announced their decisions on Friday.

Sky outbid all of their rivals for all four live packages, paying over £1024 million for the exclusive rights.

The Beeb lost the coverage to show highlights of the weekend games for the 2001-2 season, as ITV launched their 'The Premiership' programme.

However, the BBC will now have highlights back in their control from the season after next, with Match of the Day making a return to the Saturday evening slot.
