Sky 'Ready To Put' Free Premier League Highlights On YouTube Shortly After Full-Time

Sky Sports are 'giving serious thought' to broadcasting free Premier League highlights on YouTube.

It is believed the videos will contain three-minute highlight clips, including all the key moments from top flight games, according to The Daily Mail.

The company have only made brief highlights available on social media in the past.

But this latest offer to non-paying viewers could have a huge impact on another popular show.

BBC giants Match of the Day have often been the stand-alone broadcaster when it comes to showing goals and key moments from Premier League games on a weekend.

But a potential highlight reel on YouTube has the potential to have a knock-on effect, although a certain Gary Lineker isn't worried about it,.

The former Tottenham and Leicester striker insisted it "isn't a threat at all."

The MOTD presenter also responded to a Twitter user, who said:

"No problem. Match of the Day isn't just about highlights. It's about Gary giving it large to Alan and Wrighty, trying to stop enjoying himself too much.

"It's the banter, punditry, 10.30pm on a Saturday night after the pub and 'aving a curry. It's about the theme tune. You cant buy that."

The Daily Mail also report that 'insiders insist the initiative by Sky should not be of any great concern to the BBC' because these YouTube clips will not have any commentary or expert analysis attached to them.

Although it must be noted that a certain demographic of fans crave shorter, more condensed content.

What are your thoughts on the idea of a YouTube clip containing Premier League highlights? Is it a good one?

Let us know in the comments.
