Well, it looks like DAZN is launching on 1st December in the UK focusing exclusively on boxing at £1.99 per month.

Even with lockdown, there's been more live fights in my local than on BoxNation this year.

Premier League abandon their disastrous PPV proposals and are discussing with broadcasters what to do next.

Not surprising given the dismal PPV figures and the backlash from supporters.

Agreed. Not worth upsetting their customers (fans and Sky/BT who didn't like it either) for something that makes loose change in real terms.

This weekends matches are still PPV - people need to hold their resolve and refuse to subscribe to knock another nail in the PPV coffin

Totally stupid idea but I wouldn't class it as dismal for the. Average of 40K for each match (granted some were less) at £14.99 a time makes around £600k per game - drop in the ocean against the TV rights packages but a reasonable sum.

If BT and Sky were complaining that it only just covers their costs...who was paying for recording of all the PL matches before? The PL themselves?

Every game has been recorded and broadcast for over a decade for international television with English language commentary packaged by the league. The costs to Sky/BT are probably minimal, but we don't know who is getting what cut from the games.

Sky/BT will be making minuscule amounts but equally be associated with reputational damage from being involved in this farce.

BT and Sky are only taking costs - the EPL get the rest.

Good news for the DAZN balance sheet is that they've removed about $300m of liabilities as the biggest draw in boxing has been released from his contract.
