BT Sport confirmed last week that it struck a deal to stream both the Europa League and Champions League finals on YouTube this year, in a move to boost subscribers.

The network had already planned to stream the two games online via its freeview channel BT Sport Showcase, The Telegraph reported last week, but those plans didn t end up panning out for several reasons.

That s why BT Sport partnered up with YouTube to make the games available more widely.

In an announcement on its site, BT Sport lays out two ways to stream the game live, one for subscribers and a second for people who don t subscribe to the channel.
