Totally agree


I can't be bothered to check out all the new shows eack week, so probably miss some good dramas across the terestial networks. Netflix has made weakly episodes, thing of the past for me, so having full seasons/series, add-free, available later could be an attractive proposition, depending on price.


It will be interesting to see what the 'new kangaroo' offers

Interesting to see how DAZN develops. It looks quite credible. Interesting article here. https://inews.co.uk/sport/dazn-sets-...netflix-sport/

Like

1. the no frills no pundits type of coverage (only watch team lists and actual games)
2. No ads
3. Estimated cost of 9.99 euros

Dislike

1. Watching on laptop, tablet or mobile - don't have a 49" TV to watch on something where the ball will look like a golf ball
2. Not currently available in UK

Overall impression, worth keeping an eye out for - but a long way from a desirable service

According to the DAZN website you can also watch it on "Smart TVs, Apple TV, Amazon Fire TV and Sticks, Air Stick 4K, Chromecast and more"

Important to note that it does not mention anything about entering the UK market. The deal with Eddie Hearn is for the USA.

Very interesting, and the first real sign that ultimately, the price of football on TV will fall with time.

People have been finding it difficult to believe how any company could move in, pay for the PL rights and provide a cheaper service than Sky. I have given some examples but these did no include the 'no frills without the pundits' idea, which would save a lot of money by itself.

The game needs disrupters like this for the benefit of the viewers.

Can't argue with you. I know people have brought up the cost of broadcasting Premiership football as a reason why it wouldn't be cost effective for the likes of Amazon to bid for the rights but the DAZN model could work. The Premier League broadcast each game globally. Amazon could just use the international feed rather than sending their own camera's to the games. I'm sure the Premier Leagues International feed also includes English commentary so Amazon wouldn't need a dedicated commentary team either.

I wonder how much SKY and BT fork out per game on camera crews, production staff, commentators, presenters and pundits?

Re: Netflix/Streaming Services

The problem for DAZN is going forward they wouldn't just be taking on the scale of Sky they'd be taking on either Comcast or Disney who's global scale makes it extremely difficult sure Amazon could but these small players have no chance in my opinion.

Don't forget that we are in the beginning of a transitional period. The BBC is working on the assumption that when the next licence fee is reviewed, the current method of broadcasting channels will be phasing out and all their content will be streamed/on demand. At that point, the licence fee is likely to be scrapped in favour of a subscription and so all the participating channels on the Kangaroo type service will get a cut of the subscription fee.

The one concern I have is that we will be reliant on the broadcasters to determine the length of time that content will be displayed. I rather like the flexibility to view it at my leisure, up to about 18 months ahead. If they place the same kind of timelines as Now TV do, this will make juggling our viewing rather more difficult.
It looks like Ofcom may have been won over, rather belatedly, with the Kangaroo Project idea.

It's a shame that Ofcom's lack of vision has put back the progress on this that was being made before they scuppered their plans. Their action could have seen the early demise of the commercial terrestrials. Let's hope they have recognised their gross error in time to prevent this from happening.

Re: Netflix/Streaming Services

The DAZN idea sounds like a great idea.Start broadcasting 10 mins before the start.first half,half time talk over,second half then finish.Does anybody on here actually enjoy the highly paid talking heads stating the bleeding obvious to anyone with a smidgeon of football nous.

Don't get me started on all the junkets abroad,the upcoming world cup for example,how much is that costing to send uncle tom cobley and all to russia? when, they could easily use a feed from the countries broadcaster and sit in a studio in London and say the same things.Do they think it matters a jot to us that the talking heads are in a studio in the host country talking repetitive bull.

Not to me it doesn't.It's just a retired players money grab(as if gerrard,souness,lampard, etc need the money).

Rant over.

Re: Netflix/Streaming Services

Does anyone know when the UK is likely to finally get access to YouTube Red ?

They have started adding quite a few originals however it seems you can only watch the first so many episodes free here which is annoying as a Google Play music subscriber.

No firm date yet, but a launch in the UK is expected later this year.
