"We have always said that we want to make top quality sport available to more people".

"This season we have shown some absolutely awesome games and have had some of our biggest games to date with our UEFA Champions League viewing figures up by 47% this season".

The deal also includes rights to the final qualifying round for the Champions League, the Super Cup and all Champions League and Europa League highlights.

The deal will give Virgin Media and TV3 exclusive rights to 327 European matches per season in Ireland across both competitions, along with shared rights along with public broadcaster RTÉ to 16 Tuesday night UEFA Champion League matches.

When asked by The Irish Times if all of the matches in question would be broadcast free-to-air, a TV3 spokesperson said: "We will be sharing more information about the deal over the coming weeks".

TV3 and Virgin Media will dominate Irish TV coverage of the Champions League and Europa League for the next three seasons.

The broadcaster, which has exclusive rights to show the match in the United Kingdom, says it will be streaming the match live and in 4K for subscribers and non-subscribers.

Both matches will be available for free to watch on YouTube in 4K Ultra HD at youtube.com/btsport, the BT Sport app and btsport.com and available for BTTV subscribers on BT Sport 2 and BT Sport 4K UHD.

Asmir Begovic is of the view that Real Madrid is the favourite going into the clash after they have gotten to the final in four times in the last five seasons.

On satellite TV BT Sport continues to hold exclusive rights, although there is speculation that it may sub-let some games to Channel 4 or ITV as there are now no European games on terrestrial television in the UK. "Real Madrid is absolutely fantastic when they turn it on and they've been playing for the Champions League for the last few months now".

Are we heading towards an era where every match could be streamed on YouTube?
