This article refers to sports broadcasting rights in the United Kingdom. For a list of sports broadcasting rights in other countries, see List of sports television broadcast contracts.

Certain sporting events are protected by the Ofcom Code on Sports and Other Listed and Designated Events and must be broadcast live and free-to-air on terrestrial television in the UK.

Presently, free-to-air means a TV channel which is free and covers 95% of the population.[1] Qualifying free-to-air channels are BBC One, BBC Two, ITV, Channel 4 and Channel 5. With Ofcom permission, certain events are allowed to be broadcast on supplementary channels such as BBC Four, BBC Red Button and ITV4.
