No, I mean a game changer as in match choice and multiple matches being shown at the same time and the impact this could have on what the PL decide to do (do they further increase matches available, make all midweeks available, etc.)

As to needing two subs for EFL although there is a chance I would not say it's highly likely, 50/50 at best.

If SKY get the weekend packs you can be sure they will get midweeks packs as BT already have more than enough midweek content so I imagine they will focus their bid on weekends.

If BT get the weekend packs, then I very much doubt SKY will just take midweeks as they traditionally don't go in for secondary rights. Of course in this scenario someone like Eurosport could jump in and pick up midweeks.


In any case for most EFL supporters even if you opt for just whoever gets the weekend pack you'll probably have considerably more games available than you do now and better chances of seeing your team on TV.

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

Correct but most fans like to see all their teams televised games if not attending this gets messy and expensive if spread across two broadcasters.

Hopefully one or the other will pick up all the rights.

l doubt it MM.

How long is it since Virgin offered the single Sky Sports 1 or 2 options?

Sky offered it online and through retention until May this year.

(I know the changes but it's under NDA for now, although press releases are imminent ).
