SI TV Strikes Replay Deal With Liverpool FC

“It could be a good alternative for Liverpool fans that don’t want to pay the multiple price tags for ESPN+, B/R Live, and NBC Sports Gold that it would take to see all of the team’s games otherwise.”

Sports Illustrated’s over-the-top streaming service, SI TV, has struck a deal with British soccer club Liverpool FC to offer replays of all the team’s matches. The deal also calls for complimentary Liverpool-themed programming.

No live matches are included in the deal, but SI TV will be able to replay any Liverpool game regardless of what event the team is playing in. The most recent replays will be part of the service’s linear feed. Sahil Patel of Digiday reports that those replays will be available as soon as the evening of the day the match was played. Premier League matches will be delayed a little longer due to NBC’s contract with the league. Older matches will be available on demand.

SI TV subscriptions go for $5 per month. It could be a good alternative for Liverpool fans that don’t want to pay the multiple price tags for ESPN+, B/R Live, and NBC Sports Gold that it would take to see all of the team’s games otherwise.
