Sky will now show a staggering 70 per cent more matches than they currently do.
Their live offering will include 140 weekend games, in addition to Friday and Monday night offerings.
They will now be able to show multiple matches at the same time during the 2pm Sunday slot, with all games outside of the 3pm blackout to be televised.
Three mid-week rounds will also be shown on Sky.
In a Premier League first, Sky Sports will show all 10 final day matches.
The Saturday 12:30pm kick-off slot, meanwhile, will remain on TNT Sports.
TNT will also broadcast two mid-week rounds of fixtures, taking their total tally of games to 52.
The Premier League’s next UK TV deal is worth a staggering £6.7bn.
This represents a four per cent increase from its current deal.
Amazon Prime Video won rights to show Boxing Day fixtures as well as a further mid-week round of games in the last UK rights auction.
But they have not won any of the five broadcast packages this time around.
Confirming the latest UK TV packages, Premier League chief executive Richard Masters said: “We are delighted to announce new deals with Sky Sports and TNT Sports that will extend our partnership for a further four years and see more Premier League matches than ever before shown live from 2025/26 onwards.
“As longstanding and valued partners, Sky Sports and TNT Sports are renowned for consistently delivering world-class coverage and programming.
“We have enjoyed record audiences and attendances in recent seasons, and we know that their continued innovation will drive more people to watch and follow the Premier League.
“We are also extremely pleased to extend our partnership with BBC Sport, which will continue to bring weekly highlights of all Premier League matches to the widest possible audience in the UK.
“Match of the Day has been an institution for generations of football fans in this country and remains incredibly popular with fans of all ages.
