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

It appears the Premier League rights auction have gone into another round of bidding with no announcement today.

Well, that’s interesting. This may indicate other interested parties stepping into the fray.

I wouldn't read too much into no news today, The Premier League have consistently said there would be no announcement until next week on how the auction went.

So much for unfounded rumours that Sky was going to cut things and reduce its content.

They will have paid peanuts for that content and it complements their Super League coverage well.

Mad Max.

My whole and total whinge about VM. Is that they are always increasing there prices.

Three times last year - and NO increase in NEW channels.

We the customer deserve better.

My wife does have VM, and the basic package. We have Sky as we have it on a cheaper package and get MORE channels that VM have.

VM couldn't beat the Sky deal, my wife tried.

I don't believe Sky were ever going to cut their sports content, but they have indicated that there is a limit to how much more they are prepared to pay to retain the Premiership rights.

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

Premier league auction puts squeeze on football fees.

Quote:
BT is attempting to squeeze higher fees from rival Virgin Media for its sport channels against the backdrop of this weekend's multibillion-pound Premier League rights auction.
Quote:
The two telecoms giants are locked in negotiations over wholesale fees for BT Sport, with Virgin Media under pressure to pay more to retain access to all top-flight football.
