Is Manchester United vs Newcastle United on TV?

Unfortunately, Manchester United’s clash with Newcastle United is not being televised in the UK due to the 3pm blackout rules.

That means that most fans will be unable to watch Ronaldo’s hotly-anticipated second debut as it happens, unless they have tickets for the match itself.

How else can I follow Manchester United vs Newcastle United?

The game may not be on TV, but supporters can follow all the action on BBC Radio 5 Live.

Coverage is also available to listen to online and via the BBC Sounds App.

Where can I watch highlights of Manchester United vs Newcastle United?

The Sky Sports app is the first place to catch highlights of the game after the final whistle, with footage available from 5:15pm.

Later on Saturday evening, BBC One’s Match of the Day will showcase extended highlights of the game, as well as the rest of the action from the Premier League.

The show starts at 10:40pm, and will be repeated on Sunday morning, before being available on the BBC iPlayer later in the week.
