Live audio-visual broadcast rights are sold in three-season packages through a heavily regulated auction process.
The rights are sold on a collective basis, rather than individually by each Club.
For the three seasons 2019/20–2021/22, 200 live matches per season were split into seven packages (labelled A-G) of either 20 or 32 matches for domestic broadcast partners.
Each represented a specific time slot in which matches can be broadcast.
No single broadcaster was permitted to purchase all seven.
Due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, all Premier League matches are currently being broadcast live in the UK, including Saturday kick-offs between 14:45-17:15.
