And not at all ironic that you are twisting it again. I said nothing of the sort. Read it again.

Are you disputing that what I set out in my last post was correct? I was simply trying to clarify the argument. The choice appears to be:

1. Watch these additional televised matches on PPV.

2. Go to the pub (if it’s open in your area) and watch there.

3. Do the same as you would had the PPV matches not been made available ie miss the matches and make do with your usual Sky Sports/BT Sports/ Amazon subscriptions.

Is that not a correct summary?

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

Not necessarily. Sky/BT could drop games depending on quotas to let more attractive games go to PPV - I presume as it's their platforms they get a cut. It also allows them to trial market testing of pay per view football.

Either way, it's not the straightforward innocuous gift from the Premier League to customers you portray it to be. It's very much a Trojan horse, as boxing fans will testify.

Neither Sky nor BT have said they are doing that. Until it actually happens I will regard that as a conspiracy theory.

Of course, that doesn’t mean that theory is incorrect!

I'm thinking it's the thin edge of the wedge.

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

I'm afraid I'm with Mad Max and jfman on this one. People need to avoid the PPV matches and make do with the radio to avoid the balance of future TV rights tipping in favour of PPV.

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

I would hope the plentiful games on TV - almost every week being a Champions League week for example - means the “average viewer” who maybe watches a few games a week avoids it and it gets the low thousands (pretty much season ticket holders).

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

PPV matches were shown the red card by fans when Sky previously tried it. I suspect history will repeat itself.

Hopefully, you are correct.

I for one commit to not paying for PPV football matches (or boxing for that matter)

Incidentally is this not what Eleven Sports tried to do in their death throes? Just conscious of the precarious nature of DAZNs financial situation.

If it is true that the ‘average viewer’ only watches one or two matches a month, PPV might be cheaper!
