LaLigaTV launches on Virgin Media
15 January 2020
LaLigaTV, the UK’s first dedicated channel showing all live matches and 24/7 content from LaLiga, will launch on Virgin Media’s TV platform on Thursday 16 January.
The new channel – in HD on channel 554 – is available to all Premier Sports subscribers at no extra cost. At the end of January, LaLigaTV will be available to watch on the move on Virgin TV Go, meaning that fans won’t miss any of the action.
Those who don’t currently subscribe to Premier Sports, and want to watch the likes of Lionel Messi, João Félix and Eden Hazard in action, can sign up on a monthly basis including access to LaLigaTV as well as Premier Sports’ two HD channels.
Offering “All of LaLiga, All in one place”, LaLigaTV will show every available live game from LaLiga Santander as well as daily studio shows, expert analysis, features, documentaries and more.
This weekend’s round of fixtures stretches from Friday into Sunday with key matches including: Leganés vs Getafe (Fri - 8pm GMT) and Barcelona vs Granada (Sun – 8pm GMT).
The addition of the channel to Virgin Media’s TV platform will provide its customers with increased access to one of the most competitive leagues in the world which boasts some of the best players around.
Virgin Media customers can already watch Premier League football via Sky Sports and BT Sport – with the option of stunning 4k Ultra HD on BT’s dedicated channel – as well as the Champions League and Europa League.
In December, Virgin Media’s powerful V6 set top box gave its customers the ability to seamlessly watch Premier League football on Amazon Prime Video courtesy of its integrated app, with some matches shows in 4K Ultra HD.
David Bouchier, Chief Digital Entertainment Officer at Virgin Media, said: “The addition of LaLigaTV to our football line-up will give customers access to some of the best talent and matches from one of the most popular leagues in the world. Our customers can now watch more football than ever which is why Virgin TV remains the home of televised football.”
Richard Sweeney, CEO at Premier Sports, said: “We are delighted to launch LaLigaTV on Virgin TV as part of the Premier Sports bundle giving our customers even more incredible value. Premier Sports has built up a loyal following of football fans and we’re thrilled to bring the dedicated 24/7 channel of top-flight Spanish football to Virgin TV customers.”
A Premier Sports subscription and access to LaLigaTV can be added to any Virgin Media account online, by phone or set top box.
