Re: ESPN, BT, Euro, Premier and Sky Sports news

Man City have gone, Chelsea going? And Woodward has resigned from MU.

The article above has yet to find its way onto BBC sport website.

Beginning to look like this was a bargaining tool to get better cut of Champions League money?

I.e. Give us more money or look what could happen?

It reminded me of a game of very quickly falling dominoes as l kept on getting notifications coming up on the mobile while out with the close family.

Just watching the Leicester V West Brom game on BT Sport, and the commentary seems to be a split second ahead of the actual action, for instance, Johnny Evans scores with a header, and the commentator says and there's the second goal for Leicester just before it goes into the net.

It's the same on my SkyQ box - must be a BT problem.

However, the picture quality is great with really vivid colours (HD channel)

Re: ESPN, BT, Euro, Premier and Sky Sports news

Same thing happened with me. The other odd thing is that it was showing on the EPG as being on Ultimate channel, but it wasn't.

Well the ESL didn't last long - not sure if this means DAZN will be interested in the EPL now or not?

Probably not. ESL presented the unique opportunity for worldwide rights to a worldwide product.

Despite British exceptionalism I doubt the EPL drives €10 subscriptions any more than La Liga drives £10 ones outside their own country.

Re: ESPN, BT, Euro, Premier and Sky Sports news

I think the EPL comes first as the most-watched in the world, followed by La Liga.

May well be. But will people pay monthly subscription for it?

La Liga was popular here (on Sky Sports - an add on) but it didn't survive on Eleven Sports.

Being highly viewed when a secondary contract on a popular pay-tv provider in your own territory doesn't necessarily mean they'll pay for your content. Or that there isn't readily transferable content from elsewhere if you removed it.

Re: ESPN, BT, Euro, Premier and Sky Sports news

I don't think any single genre channel which is only available by streaming on limited devices will ever be a winner.

Re: ESPN, BT, Euro, Premier and Sky Sports news

Just watched Liverpool v Newcastle and I can't believe the logic of footballers! I mean they go 1 -0 up,miss no end of chances to score more,get a late reprieve when a Newcastle goal is ruled out,yet still they manage to throw it away by diabolical defending! Now I've never played professional football but even I know when you have got away with one shut up shop!

Not really. You're in the dying minutes of the game, very simple really, keep the ball up the other end of the pitch. And as they say if you have the ball in the opposition half they can't score. Mind you the chances Liverpool had they really should of been 3 or 4 -0 up by the time Newcastle scored.
