Premier League’s controversial PPV scheme scrapped – but could return in 2021

The Premier League has scrapped the controversial pay-per-view scheme as the country enters a second national lockdown.

All top-flight matches following last term’s restart – and the first batch of this season’s games – were shown across Sky Sports, BT Sport, the BBC and Amazon Prime.

But clubs and broadcasters agreed that games not initially slated to be broadcast would be available on a PPV basis at £14.95 each earlier this campaign.

Viewing figures for some of those matches have been embarrassingly low and the scheme has now been scrapped.

However, the decision has only been made until the end of the year – with the possibility of a return in 2021.

There will be more to follow.
