Champions League Live is a football programme currently shown on both ITV and Sky Sports in the United Kingdom, broadcasting live UEFA Champions League football.

Under the current rights agreement, the ITV Network (ITV1, STV and UTV) shows one live match on a Wednesday, with Sky Sports showing all other matches via its interactive service. On Tuesdays, Sky Sports show all eight games, including those involving the English clubs. Both channels show the final live. Despite sharing the name, the various programmes are different productions.

ITV

On the ITV Network (ITV1/ITV1 HD, UTV/UTV HD, Channel Television), Adrian Chiles and Matt Smith share presenting duties. Punditry comes from Gareth Southgate with guests for each individual match. The commentators are Clive Tyldesley and Peter Drury, with analysts Jim Beglin and Andy Townsend.

In Northern and Central Scotland, STV/STV HD produce and broadcast their own Champions League coverage but only when a Scottish team is playing in the ITV match - e.g. Rangers v Manchester United on Wednesday 24 November 2010. If no Scottish club is involved in the ITV match, STV will carry ITV's coverage. Gerry McCulloch is the main presenter when STV are producing their own coverage, under the STV Sports Centre banner. Pundits are David Moyes and Richard Gough. Match commentary comes from Derek Rae with Craig Burley acting as an analyst. The programmes are produced in-house by STV News.

Sky Sports

On Sky Sports, there are a large number of commentators and co-commentators due to the interactive coverage showing every match live. The programme is presented in the Sky Sports studio, covering all matches shown. Jeff Stelling is the presenter, with punditry variously from Jamie Redknapp, Gary Neville, Ray Wilkins, Graeme Souness and Glenn Hoddle. Commentators include Martin Tyler, Rob Hawthorne, Alan Parry, Kevin Keatings, Bill Leslie and Rob Palmer.
