MUTV (Manchester United Television) is a subscription-based television channel owned and operated by English football club Manchester United. The channel first broadcast on 10 September 1998.
MUTV offers Manchester United fans exclusive interviews with players and staff, full matches, including all Premier League games (broadcast generally at midnight of the day the match was played), live reserve and academy games and “classic” matches plus footballing news and other themed programming. The station also broadcasts all of the team’s pre-season friendly matches.
When it was formed, the channel existed as a three-way joint venture between Manchester United, ITV plc and BSkyB. On 16 November 2007, ITV plc sold its 33.3% stake in MUTV to Manchester United. BSkyB followed suit on 22 January 2013, making MUTV 100% owned by Manchester United.
MUTV launched in high definition (HD) in July 2014 on the Sky platform in the United Kingdom and Ireland.
