They still make money on FTA, but not as much. However, if they put everything behind a paywall, interest in the game will diminish over time, as a result of which the number of subscriptions will decline.

They need to strike the right balance.

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

The BT/Sky partnership which was agreed in 2017 and was due to see BT get full Now TV and Sky get direct access to BT Sport ahead of the 2019/20 season is delayed until the end of 2019

Maybe this is what's behind the latest sky newspaper advert which is stating "get the FULL sports action for only...."which is all the SkySports channels but at first reading leads you to believe it would include ALL sports channels not just the Sky ones.

I was trying to reduce my monthly payment, rang sky to see what they could do and was told currently you have to subscribe to BT sports direct, but this would be changing towards the end of the year.

Assuming you then pay via Sky there will be scope for sky reducing the cost to high-end tv packages and giving discounts.

I also have a minimum sub 2Tb HD box which I would want to retain as a recordable freesat box if I went the sky route - they admitted this was possible but wouldn't guarantee it.

I offered to have a 2nd dish -again they weren't keen on this. What I probably should have done was start a 2nd subscription in my wife's name thus ensuring either the lob was compatible with both or a 2nd dish was fitted - might have got a better discount as well?

In the end I rang Virgin to cancel, had to wait 30 mins on the phone to speak to someone who offered me a 12 month deal at a 25% discount.

Today I received a letter saying my sub was going up by £4.50 pm from 1st Sept, bit of a liberty - however I am presuming this won't happen as my deal starts 28th August.

l suspect we will have a very late eleventh hour agreement with some UK broadcaster which is likely to be somebody like ITV4 or Eurosport perhaps just before the season starts.

Good for the punters if it is not behind a paywall.

Why go behind a paywall as it was clearly a unmitigated disaster last time IMO.

Amazon join forces with BT Sport to allow their PL games to be shown in pubs

I know those of us with a prime subscription can watch the December games on the V6, but it appears that this new partnership will allow those of us wanting to participate in the amber nectar in pubs the opportunity to see the games there as well.

With there being no accepted broadcaster for La Liga yet, I wonder if BT and Amazon will unite and submit a joint tender for those games.
