They did offer games at £8 each, but I have no idea how utilised this option was. The £50 - or £25 at Christmas - presented better value.

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

It could be the first move towards club-based season tickets, which I'd be interested in if it was reasonably priced. On Sky and BT I tend to watch the Sunday afternoon PL 4.30 kick off whoever's playing as it's normally a weekend's biggest match but otherwise I only watch my team and catch up with other matches on MOTD.

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

Looking at guides for football games on TV this week I see there is a load of Europa League games under 'BT Sport Digital Exclusive'. I assume it's through their website / app and there will be no option for Virgin viewers to watch?

All the BT Extra games are on the Red Button on BT, Virgin and Sky.

I'm fairly sure it was ofcom which did this? So it went from 50 quid a season to an extra 20 quid a month for all the games!
Yes it was £50pa if you paid up front before start of season. I'm not sure where your £20pm comes from unless that was the monthly charge at the time for those who didn't want to commit up front.

I think he’s approximating the cost of BT Sport where the non-Sky Sports games ended up. Of course it’s “free” to whatever they call TV XL these days, but for BT, Sky and Virgin customers below this tier there is additional cost.
