IMO sky have realised they didn't lose that many viewers by not having la Liga, as lets face it most are only interested in El classico. Eleven could not sustain its model at the price it paid. Now everyone is low balling la Liga and they don't like it.

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

Anyone watching the Community Shield match on BT Sports 1? Anyone wondering why the HD picture quality on BT Sports is so superior football coverage on Sky Sports on Virgin Media?

If the match is also available in UHD I believe it will be filmed as such and down scaled to HD for mere mortals, thus giving a better picture.

Most of sky's football is filmed in HD only.

Additionally, the camera position is a big factor in PQ - Old Trafford is particularly poor in my opinion, whereas Rugby League is so much better as the cameras are lower and nearer than most football grounds.

That's exactly it , last year Sky Sports HD Premier League games looked vastly superior to the EFL games in HD.

Thankfully this year Sky is showing a lot of the EFL games in UHD so that should improve things for those viewing these games on the HD channel.

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

With La Liga starting in 12 days do we have any idea then the announcement comes in about any new deal?

Also do we know where serie A is next season? I assume premier bloody sport kept it which is such a shame

This same member of staff at Sky has told me Sky will announce today that BT Sports will be available for Sky customers to purchase directly from Sky tomorrow in time for the new Premier League season. I’m also led to believe BT Sport Ultimate will be part of the package but more likely to be this coming Autumn.

Hopefully the information I was give proves to be correct
