Almost barely after the ink had dried on its market-changing acquisitions of primary UEFA Champions League and Europa League rights, BT has now gained the co-exclusive franchise for on demand, online and mobile clip coverage to all 350 matches per season.

Sharing with News UK, BT Sport subscribers will be able to watch clips of the action afterwards from all the matches on their mobile, tablet or laptop via the BT Sport app and “BT Sport has already pledged to make UEFA Champions League and UEFA Europa League action far more accessible and affordable for customers," explained John Petter, chief executive, BT Consumer. "The addition of clips rights means that fans need not worry about missing any of the vital moments from matches.”

The telco giant claims that it is already in possession of a strong digital following with the BT Sport App downloaded more than a million times.It adds that there are hundreds of thousands of people who are choosing to watch exclusively online.
