    New Sky Sports deal could see all lower leagues midweek fixtures shown live on TV

    All midweek Championship fixtures will be available to watch live on Sky Sports from the season after next.

    The EFL have confirmed a new five-year deal, worth £600m, that will affect all teams outside the Premier League and is scheduled to start in the 2019/20 campaign.

    The deal represents a 36% year-on-year increase on the current arrangement and will continue to see Sky Sports exclusively broadcast the Sky Bet EFL, Carabao Cup, Checkatrade Trophy and Sky Bet play-offs live through until May 2024.

    Under the new agreement, Sky Sports in each season from 2019/20 will broadcast a maximum of 150 exclusive Sky Bet EFL League matches, including:

    16 Sky Bet Championship games on Tuesday and Wednesday evenings

    A minimum of 20 Sky Bet League One and League Two matches

    The 15 Sky Bet EFL play-Off matches including all three finals

    15 matches from the Carabao Cup including the final

    The semi-final and final of the Checkatrade Trophy


    I guess this is a start to streaming every game that's live. We just need to get rid of Sky and let the clubs make the money from the streaming services rather than Sky!
