Premier League games not selected for broadcast by Sky Sports or BT Sport in October will be made available on a pay-per-view basis (Football365).
Supporters will have to pay an extra £14.95 to watch top flight fixtures which have already not been selected for live television coverage by either broadcaster.
Since the Premier League resumed in June, all matches have been made available through broadcast partners, including some free to air on the BBC.
The decision was announced in time for next weekend’s set of fixtures with all profits going directly to the clubs (Daily Mail).
A solution for screening the matches had to be worked on after the planned return of spectators from October 1 was scrapped by the Government due to a rise in coronavirus cases.
Only Leicester City opposed the plan to show the additional matches on a pay per view basis, with the other 19 clubs voting in favour (John Percy / Telegraph).
The decision means that Spurs fans who want to watch the home match against Brighton on November 1st will now have to find extra money a month before Christmas to see Mourinho’s side take to the field (Premier League).
