The English premier league rights have already gone beyond crazy money in the UK. No company with any sense would bid the kind of money that Sky paid last time!
How would amazon recoup more than £1.7Bn and make a profit in the UK?

They currently have roughly 8 million Prime subscribers in the UK, if they made no money on just that income then they would still only be at about 45% of that cost.

They are big spending but they're not stupid. Premier league rights for UK market is stupid money!

Sky should realistically be trying to pay less in the next deal.
Given BT's recent issues they cannot justify paying that kind of money they did previously, also they seem happy to be the second tier player for domestic rights, but who really knows?
I'm sure his job is probably on the line if the deal is a reduction in premier league income.

i think when the the rights are up for sale again i think Sky Tv will find alot more companies will fighting for a share forcing sky to reduce there prices too , i can't under stand why Virgin Media dont put a bid in for it too

According to certain revered posters the premier league rights are about to go to them as well.

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

ITV have landed the highly anticipated World Boxing Super Series:

https://twitter.com/SauerlandBros/st...97072402014208

14 massive nights of boxing over the next 8 months featuring some of the worlds best boxers at super middleweight and cruiserweight. Fights will be shown in ITV, ITV4 and ITV Box Office however speculation suggests only a couple of the fight nights will end up on PPV.

These are fights that not only rival but surpass some of the events televised by SKY and Boxnation. Great news for boxing fans.

More live boxing news! Boxing returns to Dave on 20th October for the professional debut of Joe Joyce. Joyce won Gold at the 2014 Commonwealth Games and Silver at the 2016 Olympics for team GB at super heavyweight.
