If ever any proof was needed that sport is the domain of the linear sports channels.

As this is Amazon's first 'toe in the water' shot at the Premiere League, it makes perfect sense for them to tap into the proven expertise that is currently available. So it doesn't prove anything about the future, other than the fact that new players are able to utilise existing resources to ensure that their virgin broadcasts are up to the quality demanded.

Doesn't matter what evidence yo are given, you always twist it to suit your incessant mantra that streaming will ripulrpe the world.

You may be correct eventually, but not in the next 10 years.

I haven't 'twisted' anything. You just don't want to consider the inevitable. I won't cry about it, though.

They must have entered into a wholesale agreement, the same as Virgin did with BT.
