Marc Watson

Head of BT TV

Marc Watson is the head of BT TV, assuming the position in 2009. In the summer of 2013, he was part of a small group of BT executives who masterminded the telecoms company’s striking entrance into the top-tier level of football coverage when the giant acquired the Premier League rights. This was the first time since Sky won the Premier League rights deal in 1992 than a competitor has established such a foothold. As a key competitor to Sky’s sporting monopoly, the influence of BT TV should not be underestimated.
