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

What it shows is that the LFP was asking too much for the rights. I would have thought that the upshot of this would be good for the punters.

I’m not sure how you are taking this, Den, but note that there were no bids from any of the TV channels. An interesting situation has arisen here.

l suspect the three bidders – Amazon, Discovery and DAZN were hoping they could pick it up at bargain basement prices.

They cannot even do that..

Sky and BT already that their coals in other fires OB.

Yes, what's interesting is the lack of bids from the two market leaders Canal Sat and BeInSport. Looks like they're playing this one cool.

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

I just wonder what the interest outside of France is for watching their league games, it won't be anywhere near the interest shown in the EPL imo.

Or maybe they are attempting to drive down prices. Such a move is well overdue.

Same as the English Premier League, they're sold on a per-country basis and the rights outside France are already held by other broadcasters.

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

I'd imagine the qataris are having a go about it "they're offering what....no....ask for more money".

I think they thought owning Paris SG would make the french league like the premier league with billions of pounds being injected. Unfortunately all the qataris have done with the french league is stamped out nearly all competition. Why would people want to watch that? Even the french couldnt be arsed watching Paris win over and over again.

Similar to Serie A with Juventus dominating due to the sheer fact theyve moved away from the daft dual owned stadium or owned by the city concept and were earning big money from home games before the pandemic whilst Ac/Inter/Roma and Lazio clung onto their rotting stadiums where they barely get any money out for "nostalgia" reasons.

True, although I did note they have not got exclusive rights leaving the opportunity for Sky/BT to get in on the act cheaply.

It’s an interesting situation indeed, but if the streamers aren’t willing to match the previous bids from TV channels, or reserve valuations, as seemingly has happened here and in the last EPL rights auction in the UK. The question becomes when do they enter the market? How much do the need the valuations to fall by?

Considerably I would guess.

If that is the case, I would expect EPL to set up there own streams and allow things like season tickets to all matches of a customer selected
Team.

Also possibly being able to PPV any single matches.

If that happens, being able to watch 4 or 5 games a round might become very expensive when compared to the current situation. (Based on the recent £14.99 per game offering)

BT buys cricket rights for West Indies and New Zealand.

They already had rights to N Zealand cricket, (and Big Bash T20 in Australia) but capturing WI cricket from Sky is a plus for BT.

Does this point to BT becoming the place for cricket (I.e. Will they add the Ashes and IPL as well) or does this indicate they are facing the likelihood that Sky will retain the Ashes?

One thing for certain is Sky will retain the rights to England home internationals (possibly with 1 test a year on free to air TV?) - ECB couldn't afford for them to go anywhere else.
