The BBC has kept hold of the rights to show Premier League highlights from 2016 through to the end of the 2018/19 football season.
The news means Match of the Day is secure for another three years beyond the expiry of the current rights period. As part of the new 2016-19 deal, there will be a new highlights show airing midweek on BBC Two (HD) at 10pm.
Irish expats in the UK may be able to tune into RTÉ Radio via DAB digital radio, with the Irish public service broadcaster backing a bid by Listen2Digital to operate the UK's second national commercial DAB multiplex.
The second runner in the bid to secure the licence for the second national commercial DAB multiplex has been identified as Listen2Digital.
Listen2Digital is backed by Orion Media - owner of Free Radio and Gem 106 in the West and East Midlands, and engineering support services organisation Babcock International Group PLC. Partners in the bid include Folder Media and Asian broadcaster Sabras Sound.
Following the deadline for applications for the second national commercial DAB multiplex, Sound Digital, a joint venture company formed by Arqiva, Bauer Media and UTV last year have issued a detailed statement indicating what listeners would be able to tune in to on DAB if it secures the licence for "Digital 2" from Ofcom.
