Arsenal TV signs deal with Turner Sports for B/R Live distribution

Arsenal have become the latest premier league to sign a deal with Turner Sports’ B/R Live OTT platform.

The North London club joins European champions Liverpool’s LFCTV along with local rival Tottenham Hotspur’s Spurs TV in signing a US distribution deal with the streaming service.

The main draw of the channel is a three-hour programming block for every match day, which includes pre- and post-match coverage across all of the club’s matches. 

The most significant form of synchronicity is B/R Live’s exclusive US rights to the Europa league – in which Arsenal are currently taking part. 

Therefore, Gunners fans will get an experience tailored to them, with the ability to get build up and reactions from the club’s in-house network, and watch matches all from the same platform.

Arsenal TV also offers full match replays, made available approximately 12 hours following matches, in addition to archived classic matches and weekly magazine programming.

What is missing from this deal however is something apparent in Liverpool’s contract – live audio commentary during all first team matches and live streaming of reserve team and academy matches. 

The Spurs TV deal is more similar to Arsenal’s, with a 3-hour weekly programming block, full match replays and archived matches.
