Anyway has anyone got any idea on who own Premier Media Broadcasting Ltd.?
Premier Sports appeared after the failure of Setanta. They are/were both ROI and both had their head offices at the same address (in Luxembourg?)

So my guess is the owners are the same as people who owned Setanta.

La Liga will be available on Sky, but no mention yet of Virgin Media. However, I would be very surprised indeed if Virgin didn't get it.

https://www.fourfourtwo.com/features...na-real-madrid


The soon-to-be-launched LaLigaTV will be available as part of the Sky TV bundle and Premier Player OTT service for £11.99 per month (or £99 per year), while supporters will be able to add Premier Sports to their TV for £5.99 per month/£49 per year should they already have Sky TV.

To be fair, Den was talking about the lack of information on any Virgin launch.

I read 'to be confirmed' as meaning no idea as yet.

So Virgin may think out the park and add Premier Sports to the XL Pack anyway unless Virgin sign an new deal with Premier Sports we will not get that new LaLigaTV channel.
Importantly that's not what the Sky release says. It doesn't say that BT will be included in existing packs as standard, at any level of subscription.

I think you should rephrase to "we don't want to pay more money for ALL the football"

I'm happy to pay for the football I want to see but there is only so much I can watch. I'm lucky if I get time for more than 2 matches of anything a weekend.

If someone just wanted to see La Liga surely £5.99 a month is much better than years past where they would have had to shell out for Sky Sports.

If you want all the football then yes you pay more but really who wants to or has time for all the football?

But this is the thing - the set of customers paying for a new service would almost entirely be a subset of Sky Sports customers. Making them - the many - worse off.

Not necessarily. Stand-alone services will be cheaper than taking Sky Sports, which covers a variety of sport. The question is, how many people subscribe to Sky Sport to watch just one or two specific sports? Most, I would have thought.

But you're conflating two things here. I agree that most watch one or two sports, but La Liga isn't a sport, it's a selection of games within a sport.

You're also assuming that when the rights get spun out and averaged across a much smaller customer base that the cost to the end user reduces . This isn't necessarily the case.
