Re: Eleven Sports

From what I hear they will be a totally online streaming service albeit with chase-play live and on demand replay with no presence on any of the usual "broadcast" platforms. Apparently they are working on the apps needed to Chromecast etc to your big TV.

Even in this day and age seems a chancy strategy to do that as a subscription service and avoid hook ups with BT, Sky or Virgin etc.  Even Amazon and Netflix have not dared go down that route.

Check the following article from a516digital.com about Eleven Sports:

https://www.a516digital.com/2018/08/your-guide-to-eleven-sports.html

It does seem to be an online only service at launch, but the article does say..... "As yet, Eleven Sports has not been able to announce a carriage deal with a traditional pay TV operator"...... maybe then this does mean that they are looking at some sort of tie-up with say BT. Sky or Virgin in the future????????  Maybe something to keep an eye on going forward.

Re: Eleven Sports

Would be nice to think there would, I for one will be ditching BT when the UFC contract completes (Sport, TV and fibre).

 

Having a deal to broadcast Eleven Sports might make be consider remaining a customer.
