ITV In Talks To Buy Champions League Rights Back From BT Sport

By Mike Parrott

ITV are looking to get themselves back in the Champions League Viewing rights after losing out for the past five years to BT Sport.

The Champions League may be returning to ITV and Terrestrial Television after it was revealed that ITV are in talks to bring the Champions League back.

BT Sport have controlled the Champions League rights in the UK since 2015 and have numerous deals in place to continue until 2024 at least.
