ZiggoLiberty Global-owned cable operator Ziggo has acquired English Premier League rights in the Netherlands for the next three seasons.

Ziggo has the rights to live matches and highlights as well as the rights to make matches available via the internet and the Horizon Go and Ziggo Sport Totaal Go apps.
