How does the Premier League distribute its broadcast rights?

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 2016/17–2018/19, there were seven packages (labelled A-G) of either 12 or 26 matches.

Each represented a specific time-slot in which matches can be broadcast.

No single broadcaster was permitted to purchase all seven.
