Premier League TV Rights...

Sky and BT Sport have paid a record £5.136bn for live Premier League TV rights for three seasons from 2016-17. This is 70% up from the current deal of £3.018bn which itself was 70% up from the previous deal before that of £1.773bn.

Sky will now show 126 live games per season (up from 116) and BT Sport will show 42 live games per season (up from 38). So that's 168 live games (up from 154).

I wonder if any of it will make it's way to ticket price reductions?
