BT is Making Sure That Everyone Can Tune in to Some Big Football Thing Starting Next Week

By Shabana Arif on at

Football fans can get excited about the prospect of watching the UEFA Champions League Final and UEFA Europa League Final for free across TV, mobile devices, and YouTube via the BT Sport App and the BT Sport YouTube channel. Things get even more exciting on the App, with viewers able to watch in VR360 and in HD HDR.

"We want to make BT a company that exceeds our customers’ expectations and does a brilliant job for the country. With both European finals being all-British affairs, we’re going to make them easier to watch for everyone in the UK than ever before as well as being the best-connected football viewing experience our customers have ever had,” said Marc Allera, CEO of BT’s consumer brand.

If you opt to watch the finals in VR360 on your phone or tablet, you can choose between a specially produced program with co-commentary from Spencer Owen, or you can pick your own PoV. For those of you wanting a more social experience, head down to Space by M&S Bank Arena in Liverpool and the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium for club screenings, or your local BT Sport Pub.

Coverage of the UEFA Europa League Final kicks off on next week on Tuesday, May 28 at 6pm with a preview show live from Baku on BT Sport 1, with the Final coverage starting the next day on Wednesday, May 29 on BT Sport 2 and BT Sport 4K UHD.

The UEFA Champions League Final will get two preview shows live from the team training sessions at the Estadio on Friday, May 31 starting with Liverpool at 4.30pm, and Spurs at 5.30pm on BT Sport 1. Final coverage starts on Saturday, June 1, at 6pm on BT Sport 2 and BT Sport 4K UHD, and will be hosted by Gary Lineker, Rio Ferdinand, Frank Lampard, Glenn Hoddle, Jermaine Jenas, Michael Owen, and Steve McManaman.

"We admire BT's decision to make the livestream of the UEFA Champions League and UEFA Europa League Finals available for free on multiple screens and in the best technology possible," said Tomos Grace, head of sport for YouTube, Europe, Middle East and Africa. "Last year's finals broke records on YouTube as millions tuned in to watch the finals on BT Sport's channel and we expect this year to be bigger still."
