12:37pm Friday 25th May 2012 in Premier League
THE BBC has retained free-to-air highlights of the Premier League in the United Kingdom until the end of the 2015/16 season.
The broadcaster was awarded the rights as the Premier League concluded the sales process for the three seasons from 2013/14 to 2015/16.
With a bid of £179.7m the BBC has retained their highlights package, including the traditional Saturday evening Match of the Day programme, the Sunday morning repeat, MotD2 on Sunday evenings and other evenings when Premier League fixtures justify a show.
