This is more a case of them testing the waters one feels it would cost a shed load more for UK rights when bidding starts.

Disney have bid $70m dollars for the US rights (1 season), Sky are paying 200m a season.

Not sure I could see a streamer outbidding Sky.

Re: Streaming services news, offers and general chit chat

I think it"s 160m per season, they faced competition from BT Sport the last time.

Viaplay are only streamer i could see being interested in the UK.

Re: Streaming services news, offers and general chit chat

It should be noted that the original report also stated NBC, Disney and Amazon are circling the deal as well…

And honestly I would be surprised if the rights go anywhere than ESPN or (unless they table a huge bid) NBCU especially when the sport is still in a huge growth phase over in the US and locking it away on Netflix without a cable/broadcast presence could potentially impact that especially as they add races in the US which need prime time exposure and I think F1 will be considering that… I would never say never but I also think F1 will be very careful to allow their encouraging US growth to be treated as someone’s test case especially if they’ve not done sport before unlike Apple who are testing with MLB and Amazon who have slowly built up their capabilities before going for Thursday Night Football for a billion plus dollars a year.

This thread really gets into the pros and cons of it quite well I think -

DAZN with an eye watering 33% price rise in Italy introducing a new 'premium' subscription - up to a whopping €39.99 (34) a month and charging extra for using mobile devices out and about. For some extra context the Series A rights come in at a more modest 2bn for three seasons compared to the EPL and their 4.6bn.

The subscribers better have deep pockets for the streaming revolution.

Or bite the bullet and don't subscribe . If people don't buy in it will soon "die"

Re: Streaming services news, offers and general chit chat

Interestong read here about possible future of TV (USA) https://thestreamable.com/news/could...FEl40nXIb3ZXRg

it's a bit of a read so i've put in two paragraphs that stood out for me.

“What you see right now that is holding broadcast up is sports and news,” Ashley Hovey, director of ad-supported video-on-demand at The Roku Channel said on the panel according to a Fierce Video report. “I think a lot of the other type of viewings, like scripted, have definitely gone down. There’s the question of, do sports need to go over to actually make [broadcast channels] go away?”

Despite the increase in advertising attention on free streamers, many of the larger traditional broadcasters in the space are hesitant to move their most valuable assets over to their FAST platforms. However, Fox announced earlier this spring that it will make all of this year’s World Cup matches available on-demand on Fox-owned Tubi following their live broadcast on the company’s broadcast and cable networks.

Despite the move, Fox has long said that it has “no plans” to make its most prominent sports property, the NFL, available on its free streamer. Chief Executive Officer Lachlan Murdoch said on a 2021 earnings call that the company was “very mindful of the exclusive value of live NFL on broadcast television, and we’re very mindful of the value that attributes to our O&Os (owned-and-operated stations) and our affiliates.”

Re: Streaming services news, offers and general chit chat

Does anyone know whether the Paramount + service coming in the UK will have the same content excluding sports as the US version.

I ask as it seems quite a lot of their shows air on Sky.

Re: Streaming services news, offers and general chit chat

Very doubtful as some other channels have the UK rights for some popular stuff.

I think it will be very cut-down - like Peacock is.

In the most part yes - in the US, it also carries CBS channel and some of it's programming as well as licensed movie titles from the Epix cable channel whereas in the UK (and international markets) in the absence of sports, Epix titles and live CBS, we get Showtime's originals and catalogue bundled in.

Re: Streaming services news, offers and general chit chat

With the launch of Paramount Plus at 6.99 or cheaper if paying annual and many other streamers pitching their services at under the 7 mark Netflix could slow even more in my opinion.
