The controversial £14.95 charge for top-flight pay-per-view matches has arrived, while the blame remains unclear, with the Premier League initiating the idea, according to the boss of BT Sport.

The league and its broadcast partners have been heavily criticised over the pricing of the games, which was announced following a meeting last Friday, with the Football Supporters' Association urging them to reconsider.

The matches concerned are those happening in the remainder of this month which had not been selected by Sky Sports or BT Sport for regular live broadcast, and would otherwise not have been available at all to fans who remain barred from attending matches due to the coronavirus pandemic.

Premier League chief executive Richard Masters said on Wednesday that the pay-per-view price was "defensible" and that the broadcasters were ultimately the price-setters in any case.

Here is everything you need to know about the new plan and how you can watch the games this month.
