Fox Sports Eredivisie is a Dutch premium television service owned by Eredivisie Media & Marketing CV in which Fox International Channels Benelux[2] (part of 21st Century Fox) has 51% share. The football clubs (Eredivisie CV) together with Endemol own 49%. There are 3 channels available and are all part of the Fox Sports (Netherlands) premium network. Fox Sports Eredivisie holds the exclusive rights for the live matches of the Eredivisie, the highest national football division.

It launched as Eredivisie Live at the start of the 2008–09 season on 29 August 2008.[3] Highlights of the Eredivisie can be seen on the national public broadcaster NOS.

The pundit team includes Jan van Halst, Mario Been and Pierre van Hooijdonk. Gary Lineker provides a weekly analysis of the matches, which can be seen on the website of Eredivisie Live. The website also offers pay-per-view matches.

Between the 2009–10 and 2012–13 seasons, Eredivisie Live broadcast the UEFA Europa League live on Thursdays. From 2013–14 the coverage switched to sister service Fox Sports International for matches of non-Dutch clubs.[4]

The service rebranded into Fox Sports Eredivisie on 1 August 2013.[5]
