The return of the Champions League for 2023/24 means coverage of the competition proper for the first time by TNT Sports, which has officially replaced BT Sport in the UK and Republic of Ireland as a new home for sports coverage.
The service combines the content that was already provided by BT Sport and Eurosport, as well as discovery+ entertainment shows.
They hold viewing rights to all three UEFA club competitions – the Champions League, Europa League and Europa Conference League.
