Re: Sky Sports is no longer guaranteed on BT's youview

@ney

My point was BT and sky could agree a deal where BT get sky one and the other sky sports channels to wholesale and sky get BT sports channels and amc to wholesale.
I don't actually think any such deal will be done but it could be something for them to think/talk about.
Let's not compare sky Atlantic to AMC, there is no comparison.

Yes but AMC is new and will get more content. All of the shows that AMC produce are highly rated. Let's now forget Atlantic has been around longer and don't produce any of their own shows

Re: Sky Sports is no longer guaranteed on BT's youview

Sky have probably lost customers to BT because of BT sport UHD and champions league rights. They may think pulling their channels off BT will get some customers back.
Let's remember sky sports is only on BT because ofcom forced them to wholesale them to BT, they are not forced to wholesale them any more.

@jam2000

With all due respect who cares if they produce their own shows or not, people care about what they turn on and see.
Let's be honest the most famous and best show produced by AMC isn't even on AMC in this country, its on fox.

Re: Sky Sports is no longer guaranteed on BT's youview

I will ask you again as you didn't answer, who said those shows were not any good?
Who gives a Monkees how long AMC has been on air? It's a TV channel that is judged by what it shows (and ratings).
Either way this thread is going way off topic.

Re: Sky Sports is no longer guaranteed on BT's youview

Back on topic now, if these channels stay on BT its inevitable the price will be hiked up. If sky upped the prices for their own customers to pay for the premier league contract, you can be **bleep** sure the price will go up for BT customers, its a win win situation for sky.

Re: Sky Sports is no longer guaranteed on BT's youview

Posted this here yesterday but was moved to a wholly irrelevant forum 

 

Hopefully BT and Sky can now get together and resolve this issue on commercial terms as Talk Talk and Virgin Media have, leading to the other five Sky Sports channels appearing. At least there's the backstop of NowTV if the channels are removed. Ofcom have clearly stated ....

Sky Sports on BT YouView
The only supply arrangement for Sky Sports 1 and 2 under Ofcom's wholesale must-offer regulation is with BT for its YouView service. Ofcom expects all providers to engage willingly, constructively and in a timely manner to ensure sports continues to be made widely available to viewers.
Ofcom continues to monitor the pay TV market closely. Should evidence emerge of practices which we consider to be prejudicial to fair and effective competition, we will quickly reassess the need for regulation. In particular, Ofcom wants to be sure that consumers continue to have access to, and a choice of, packages and services containing Sky Sports 1 and 2.

so at least the status quo should continue.
