Teleclub renews RMC Sport deal for Premier League coverage

Swiss pay-television broadcaster Teleclub has extended a carriage agreement with French sports broadcaster RMC Sport for coverage of football’s English Premier League.

The agreement will cover the 2019-20 Premier League season, which gets underway on August 9 with Liverpool’s home match against newly-promoted Norwich City.

Teleclub’s coverage will comprise mostly live matches with French commentary.

During the upcoming season, RMC Sport’s Premier League coverage will be divided into three channels. As a result, Teleclub will complement its offering on Swisscom TV with the RMC Sport Access 2 and RMC Sport Access 3 channels.
