(Reuters) - Manchester United are launching a subscription based app for their MUTV channel across 165 countries to help fans follow news and content about the English Premier League soccer club.

The app, available on Apple and Google Play stores, has a monthly subscription fee which varies by country, the club said on Thursday.

The app will offer live commentary and near live broadcasts of all Manchester United matches, post match interviews with players and manager Jose Mourinho and will also include analysis by former players.

The app will have a subscription fee of $5.99 per month in the U.S., the club said. It will not be available in the UK because of competition and partner rights restrictions.

United, English champions 20 times, say they have 659 million followers around the world.
