Re: BT and Sky retain Premier League

It could end up with having to have 4 subs to watch all the games

So even less Premier league coming up, can't see me renewing my contract, mobile signal is complete **bleep** and been lied to for the past 10 months about WiFi calling, will be taking my £110pm elsewhere.

Re: BT and Sky retain Premier League

There are still two more packages, so could gain an extra 40 games, which would be more than they currently have.

Yep, time to cancel.

 

Fewer games and wait for the "open your wallet and repeat after me help yourself" statement from BT.

Now that all BT live games will kick off at 12:30pm on a Saturday I doubt I'll see any of them.

 

Unless your own team are playing who wants to ruin a weekend day by watching a football match at midday?

Re: BT and Sky retain Premier League

Another 40 games are still to be auctioned off, but these are rubbish packages, as winners will have to screen 10 matches at any one time - ie all matches on a bank holiday, but you can only watch one at once (similar to champions league evenings I guess)…

 

Currently:
BT pays £7.6m per match, and
Sky pays £11m per match.

 

The new deal means that:
BT pays £9.2m per match, and
Sky pays £9.3m per match.

 

So BT are paying more, for less, and Sky will have the first choice match every weekend, and half of the second choice matches.  BT will have some second choice matches, and some fifth choice.

 

BT have messed this up a lot.  Sky are the big winners here, paying a lot less, and getting the very best games.

Re: BT and Sky retain Premier League

...and all this will drive another big 6 monthly increase in subscriptions across the board with ZERO benefit for those of us who don't watch any football and have Infinity2 ...just watch and see!
