The Beeb gets MOTD rights for 3 more years

BBC has won a contract to show Premier League highlights from 2010 for 3 years. The 'Beeb' tendered £173m. to get a contract.

This is good news for all fans of the Match of the Day on Saturday and Sunday nights! We will continue to see more of the Alans (Hansen and Shearer), Lawrensen, Lee Dixon et al. as well the likes of Garry Linneker and Adrian Chiles!

Many football fans do watch MOTD because they are unable to follow live broadcasts during the day time, so their best opportunity is to watch the highs and lows of all Premier League actions in the weekends by tuning in on Saturdays and Sundays where hosts Linneker and Chiles respectively lead the pannel of experts to discuss the matches' goals, near misses, saves, attacking and defending prowess and/or blunders, referees and controverses.

MOTD is shown on BBC One tv on Sat night 10:10 GMT and repeated on Sunday morning before 09:00am GMT and MOTD 2 is shown on Sunday at 10:00pm GMT on BBC2 tv.
