The Premier League have confirmed all fixtures until the end of October will be made available to fans to watch in the UK via a new pay-per-view service.

A Premier League statement reads: "The five matches per round not already selected will be made available to supporters on a pay-per-view basis, accessed via BT Sport Box Office and Sky Sports Box Office platforms.

"Clubs today agreed this interim solution to enable all fans to continue to watch their teams live.

"The Premier League has worked closely with Sky Sports and BT Sport to provide this arrangement and is grateful for their support.

"The agreement will be regularly reviewed in consultation with clubs and in line with any decisions made by Government regarding the return of spectators to stadiums.

"Football is not the same without supporters at matches. The Premier League and our clubs remain committed to the safe return of fans as soon as possible."

Since the Premier League restart in June, all games have been televised live through Sky, BT, BBC and Amazon.

But the Premier League have grown frustrated at offering their product for free since lockdown.

Reports claim the Premier League came up with the idea with the broadcasters facilitating the move.
