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

The NOW TV SKY Sports day pass promo is back on cases of Carling.

Passes are available on 10, 12, 15, 18, 20, 24 440ml packs of Carling Lager.

Limited to 3 codes per NOW TV account. Codes valid until 11:59pm on 30th June 2017.

ASDA are doing 3 cases of Carling, 12 cans per case, for £20.00. That's cheaper than what 3 NOW TV Sports day passes would actually cost to buy on their own.

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

Old Boy., l totally agree with you. A major, major problem is that Sky have increase coverage of TV football, long with BT sport and with VM pushing the price up. And these companies are paying really high money

Football fans continue to at the price. Channels will show it.

I am a big footie fan and watch it all the time (not Arsenal though, or Celtic. I do have my principles)

When l firt started to Spurs. the whole day cost me £20 and that included entrance fee.

Now, l cannot go due to the price. It would cost be somewhere in the region of £100.00 I am not paying that

My wife took me and the family / Grandchildren (which was great) and that was on a family ticket. and that costly.

I think Barca only charge the equivalent of £20.00 and they are the very best in football.

But no, while fans are prepared t pay the money - it will get shown

I dont think the EPL will get the same increase next time. People said that last time and i disagreed i think its hit the peak now. TV ratings are down. Thats the important thing. Advertisers will not pay as much which will worry lickle sky and murdoch who are there to make a profit remember.

Losing the champions league to bt is probably the best thing ever as it means BT have been saddled with a hugely expensive contract with little movement on their subscriptions.

Both companies have been burnt by their experiences. Expect some sort of truce in 2 years time. Brexit will reduce the pound too so everything is worth less.

I can expect the amounts spent will remain the same and our prices may go up a few quid but hopefully, hopefully it wont increase as much as it has

Looks like BT are having the same issue with their Champions League viewing figures

https://www.theguardian.com/football...g-football-off

It's an interesting read which does a better job than the Daily Mail article to explain reasons why people are not tuning in. I can certainly see some truth in the following:

"Is the sport now so all-pervasive that actually watching a full match is becoming a tedious inconvenience if the relevant action and talking points can all be absorbed via osmosis on Twitter and other social media channels?"

Could be a valid point. I watched a video on Youtube recently which raised similar points and trends about poor WWE viewing figures and how the younger viewers are consuming WWE content. Here's a link anyone who is interested:
