BT Sport football results show to be streamed live on Twitter
BT Sport’s football results show will be streamed live on Twitter every Saturday afternoon.
The idea is to give potential subscribers a chance to sample BT’s approach to sports broadcasting for free, and tempt them into signing up.
It follows BT making the Champions League and Europa League finals available to watch for free on YouTube as well as its own channels, app and website.
BT Sport Score usually starts at 2.30pm on a Saturday and is presented by Mark Pougatch (pictured) and Jules Breach, with analysis by former players including Chris Sutton, Robbie Savage, Jermaine Jenas and Rachel Brown-Finnis. It will continue to be shown on BT Sport channels as well as on Twitter.
BT Sport’s live football coverage kicks off at 12.15pm on Saturdays with a game from either the Vanarama National League or the Scottish Professional Football League.
The results show is then often followed by live Premier League football presented by Jake Humphrey.
Simon Green, head of BT Sport, said: “We’re delighted to be showing BT Sport Score live on Twitter.
“This provides Twitter users a great chance to sample our strong programming, who will be able to watch football news and scores as they come in, whether they are at home or on the move.
“Innovation is at the heart of BT and we look forward to working with Twitter.”
Theo Luke, director of EMEA sports partnerships at Twitter, said: “BT Sport’s innovative approach continues to transform the experience for fans on Twitter, a place where football conversation is happening live in real time every day.
“We’re extremely excited to collaborate with them to ensure fans on Twitter don’t miss a moment of the Saturday afternoon action.”
BT Sport is showing 42 live Premier League games this season as well as 24 live FA Cup matches and the whole of the Champions League and Europa League tournaments.
Its Premier League coverage kicks off on 30 September with Chelsea against Manchester City followed by Arsenal's clash with new boys Brighton on 1 October.
Viewers will also be able to see reigning champions Chelsea in action against Bournemouth and Liverpool, a London derby between Spurs and Crystal Palace, and Newcastle's trip to Manchester United over the following weeks.
