Like other club channels, LFCTV GO is not permitted to broadcast live first team games on the website or TV channel as match coverage is restricted by broadcast regulations. This includes Premier League fixtures and all other competitive competitions. We do, however, screen live reserve games and friendlies/pre-season games involving the first team on a live and exclusive basis.
After a competitive first team game, we must wait a certain period of time before footage can be broadcast on our website or TV channel - please see below for more information (in local UK time).
Please note, this list indicates the earliest time when a match can be released for broadcast on our channels and not necessarily when a particular game will be shown. Please refer to our website or your television planner for accurate scheduling information.
