According to the SPL, the deal will last until the end of season 2011/12 with the SPL having an option to extend for a further two seasons. The deal replaces the SPL's carriage agreement with Setanta.
Lex Gold, Chairman of the SPL, said: "We are pleased that in just over three weeks we have been able to strike this deal. Sky and ESPN are two of the biggest names in sports broadcasting and they will bring first class production standards and a wide audience to the table.
"We are looking forward to working with both in the coming years to raise the profile of the SPL for our clubs, fans and partners."
All SPL games will be broadcast in High Definition and Standard Definition formats.
