NBC wins the television rights to show all Premier League games in the USA for the next three seasons.

NBC has won the television rights to show Premier League matches in the USA for the next three seasons.

The broadcaster, who beat current rights holders Fox, is thought to have bid around $83m (£52m) for the rights to all 380 matches per season, to be shown across all platforms.

"The Premier League is the pre-eminent football league in the world and is on the cusp of exponential popularity growth here in the US," said chairman of NBC Sports Group Mark Lazarus.

The deal is considered to be a blow for Fox after they recently lost the rights to the MLS and Italy's Serie A. However, they will continue to broadcast the Champions League.
