They are currently working on this. The next set of BT Sports Scottish football fixtures don't really clash with their other rights:

Airdrie Vs. Rangers is a Friday night game 7:45pm kick-off
Motherwell Vs. Kilmarnock is a Saturday evening game 5:30pm kick-off
Hearts Vs. Celtic is a Saturday lunchtime game 12:30pm kick-off
Dundee United Vs. Motherwell is a Sunday afternoon game 3:00pm kick-off
St. Mirren Vs. Aberdeen is a Monday night game 7:45pm kick-off
Partick Thistle Vs. Hibs is a Monday night game 7:45pm kick-off
Rangers Vs. Dunfermline is a Saturday evening game 5:30pm kick-off
Ross County Vs. Inverness is a Friday night game 7:45pm kick-off

Only Hearts Vs. Celtic clashes. The interesting thing is BT are deliberately putting Scottish football head to head with SKY's football matches. Monday games clash with Monday Night Football, Friday games clash with some Championship fixtures, Saturday evening games clash with Sky's Saturday football and Sunday fixtures clash with SKY's Super Sundays.

BT are clearly using Scottish football as a weapon to try and restrict SKY's viewing audiences. Whilst Scottish football isn't big down in England, fixtures featuring Celtic and Rangers can draw up to 200,000 viewers. That's 200,000 not watching SKY Sports.

My Dad is pretty old school. If there is a Scottish game and an English game on TV at the same time, he always watches the Scottish game. I know plenty of old boys who come into the pub and moan if it's not the Scottish game on the big TV in the bar.

On a separate matter, I enjoyed BT's last 5 penalties graphic during today's Liverpool Stoke game. Nice little touch. I was watching thinking if Simon Mignolet has done his homework, this will be a save.......and it was.

Cheers, that makes more sense. It all seems quite amateurish to me so far, had they managed to clash their own football rights then I would have been staggered. Putting Scottish football up against Sky matches, particularly those from the football league, will be a good tactic.

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

Can someone please explain to me, If VM have done a 'wholesale deal' with BT Sports.

Does this mean that VM have had to pay a vast sums of money, as if you are not on the XL package you will have to pay 15 per month compared to only 12 on Sky.

Can someone explain as l am confused.
