Bt have openly said that selling the rights on to Sky is an option.

I think if someone quoted BT as saying that there must have been a misunderstanding. I am sure there was an EC competition ruling that said no company could have all Premier League games, this is what allowed Setanta in in the first place.

It is certainly true that while BT get their act together other broadcasters are snapping up available rights.

Glad to see it's all about football again.

Looking forward to watching 15 Rangers league games on ESPN and Sky and hopefully some cracking cup ties too.

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

Anybody tried Premier Sports online yet? I'd be keen to subscribe for the last two months of the NRL season, but I don't want to get tied into any long term contract. Can you go a month at a time?

From the website it looks like you can buy monthly passes, or twelve months at a time. £9.99 a month, with a discount if you buy the full year.

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

"ITV has denied it is interested in airing any of BT's Premier League matces."

http://www.guardian.co.uk/media/2012...?newsfeed=true

"We are not talking to BT about taking any of their Premier League matches for broadcast on ITV channels," said the ITV spokesman. "If BT were looking for a production company to produce their Premier League coverage, that is something that we would of course look at, as we do with other potential contracts."

"It is understood that an idea was floated that one, or potentially two maximum, lesser Premier League games might be shown on ITV in order to promote the sports channel BT intends to launch next year. However, a spokesman for ITV made it clear that the tentative idea was not something that the broadcaster was interested in."

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

Primetime Live have the rights to Polish football live on a Friday, Sunday and Monday. Whilst Virgin customers can purchase Primetime PPV events, they don't have access to the actual Primetime channel that airs on SKY.

This is massive news. I am staggerred that they have chosen to break away the English Heineken Cup games. This has huge implications for Sky sports.

And huge implications for pay per view. As far as I'm cocnerned anyway.
