Beginning this season, 3 UK's customers will be able to watch highlights of the goals in Barclays' Premiership matches before they are shown on Match of the Day.

Subscribers to 3's video mobile network will be able to download video highlights of every Barclays' Premiership match at 5:15pm every Saturday. On all other match days - in both the Barclays Premiership and UEFA Champions League - highlights will be available just five minutes after the final whistle. 3 subscribers have been able to access footy clips before but never previously so soon after the end of games.

3 UK said revamped service means key match incidents can now be debated by fans in the pub or on their way home after the match, with video evidence at their fingertips. Customers can download individual game highlights at a cost of 50p per game or get unlimited access to match highlights for £5 per month by subscribing to the 3 Sports Add-on.

Last October, 3 and Vodafone UK announced that they had jointly secured mobile content rights for the FA Premier League for the next three seasons from 2004/05 through to the 2006/07 season. ®
