Surely this will encourage people to congregate together to watch foc - good for those establishments, but not so good for covid rates?

But restaurants and pubs with big TV sports screens are set to remain open staggeringly.

I thought all pubs were closing - restaurants to remain open up to 10pm?

Pubs that serve substantial meals apparently are staying open.

Not quite, Den, areas in England that are on tier one, means the rules that were in place before today's announcement will still be the same, so pubs stay open till 10pm.

In England, it's just Tier 3 areas where the pubs are closing and even then, it's only the non-main-meal pubs so Wetherspoon, All Bar One, etc can still open. So far, the only Tier 3 area is the Liverpool City region but other similarly highly-infected regions are expected to follow.

That is, unless you want a funeral, wedding or public event of over 50 people.
Quote:
Public events with more than 50 people are currently banned in Sweden due to the pandemic. This applies to concerts, demonstrations, and theatre performances for example, but not to workplaces, shopping centres or private events. However, even in circumstances where this law doesn't apply, you are expected to avoid meeting in big groups.
The Public Health Agency asks everyone to avoid organising or participating in "large events", including parties, weddings and funerals.

Here is a fairly balanced view (imho) on that.

https://www.nationalreview.com/corne...ok-over-there/

Quote:
Right now, Sweden is in pretty good shape. Testing is at record highs, and only 1.2 percent of the tests are coming back positive. The death rate among those infected is low. But overall, the story of Sweden in this pandemic is more voluntary restrictions, a somewhat less bad serving of economic pain, and a death toll and caseload that is pretty bad compared to its neighbors.

Perhaps if the situation in other European countries and the U.S. gets worse in autumn, Sweden will have something of the last laugh. But to the extent Sweden is a success story, it is a story of social trust — Swedes took sensible precautions to prevent the spread of the virus without lockdowns and government mandates. For America to have had comparable results, we would have needed a populace that had as much trust in government officials and public-health experts as the Swedes do.

Not those with big TVs as your previous post suggested then?

Does that mean you can only enter the pubs serving 'substantial meals' if you order one?

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

Go to on demand, select Live Sports Events and a wrestling event from September will show up!! Press the red button then all the games are shown. £14.95 for HD and SD.

Personally I think it’s disgusting that we are being fleeced to fill fat cat pockets. I will be accessing the naughty streams to watch my team. No way am I parting with that kind of money when I pay enough for sports within my current package.
