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

A lot of ther big clubs are not interested in the FA Cup.

There isn't a lot of money in it for them and it gets in the way.

If one of the 4 Champions League places went to the FA Cup - that would change things.

I'm intrigued to see where Serie A will end up and La Liga. Both those contracts could be re-done this summer? I hope Sky get La Liga back and Serie A. It'll really boost their football coverage and with the debacle of Eleven sport they might just be both desperate for a stable channel.
Sky and BT Sport l suspect.

BT is a ideal home for WWE after all they do broadcast UFC.

Personally, I think some of what BT broadcasts is quite good - unlike any of the above suggestions

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

I was just combing through DigitalBitRate website and saw some BT Sports Channel stuff that seems new.

First the non-new, C073/Tsid22 has BT Sport 4K UHD, this is the current 4K channel, I'm mentioning this location on the page as this is the existing service.

What I'm drawing your attention to is this...
C052/Tsid14 has BTSport 4K Hidden, BT Sport 4K Slate and BT Sport HD Hidden.

Something new from BT?

It's possible they are preparing to move services, but why labelled as they are?
-----
I just looked at the screen shots that accompany them. The HD Hidden has a BTSport 2 logo, the 4K Hidden shows what looks like an advert for a tablet, and the Slate shows BBC2 HD move (!). Weird, but maybe just tests.

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

It is as fixed as stuff like Game of Thrones, EastEnders, Coronation Street.

WWE always say it is Entertainment - and in the US it airs on Entertainment channels.

It is only the UK that lump it with sport.

Isn't it likely that the deal BT gets isn't the one Sky has had. Perhaps Sky felt that what was on offer wasn't worth it.

edit:
Also with BT Sports coming to Sky this year it's less of a risk.
