In todayís Mail on Sunday, they understand that BT have come to an arrangement with the clubs to make every match available on TV. when the prem restarts Only the showcase games will aired, but season ticket holders are expected to be given access to their clubs matches through a unique login ( whatever that means)

What a strange piece of reasoning on BTís part. So you could be paying their sport subscription and be denied access to games?

Isn't this the same as pre-lockdown? A BT sports subscription didn't give you access to live games other than the showcase games, although you could (and presumably still can) see the games later on-line..

This happens anyway; the rest of the broadcasters abroad get every single premiership match live and we only get the select BT ones until after the weekend when we can watch them on demand via prem rugby website. This is great but I'm not sure why clubs can't sell subscriptions for their team or why BT do not offer a red button option/app/online for live matches.

With the football we already had Robins TV that broadcast games live abroad, but restrictions were lifted so meant anyone could watch a game live with the correct package

I would imagine BT sport will show as many games as they can fit into their schedule with the others being shown on a rugby equivilent
