No longer just the best place to watch birds dancing to metal, YouTube will soon play host to the Champions League and Europa League finals, thanks to BT.

BT will be streaming the matches for free on its YouTube channel to those of you in the UK. On 18 May, Liverpool will play Spanish team Sevilla in the UEFA Europa League final, the Merseyside team's first European final since the 2007 Champions League final.

The UEFA Champions League final on 28 May sees the titans of Real Madrid squaring off against the goliaths of Atletico Madrid, making them both seem normal-sized.

It's the first time that the matches are being streamed live on YouTube. Fans can also watch the games on BT's Sky channel 414, or Virgin channel 548.
