The Football League is paying around £5.5m ($7m) a year to broadcast the Premier League games it has on a streaming platform.
The league’s TV rights will be split between the Sky and BT networks, and the two main broadcasters of football – ESPN and Sky Sports – will split the rest of the revenue.
The Premier League and its owners have been using streaming services like Apple TV, Roku and Amazon Prime to stream games to fans for some time, but it was the latest addition to the league’s offerings that gave it the edge.
BBC Sport has compiled a list of some of the most popular and lucrative streaming platforms, including Apple TV and Roku.
Apple TV is now the most-streamed video platform in the world, and its huge audience means it has a huge opportunity to grow its streaming business.
It is also an easy way for owners of football clubs to make money.
However, if they don’t use it for their main product, like the TV rights, they can lose it in the process.
