No mention of those on a discount? but I presume any discount you receive will still be honoured?

BT are getting Main Event and something they are calling Sports Sports Extra (not the PL channel) which is just an overflow channel for PL games not shown on main event

Sky seem to have used this change to shaft BT by giving them just the bare bones to satisfy ofcom. BT missing out on the cricket rights will hurt even more now. I'm sure it will only motivate them even more to win the EFL rights.

I'm not saying BT won't win the EFL but if they do you'd imagine they'll have to pay handsomely for it. Sky Football would look particularly weak with no EFL.

And Sky will go as high as they need to retain those rights.

Oh please let sky win the EFL. Keep football off BT Sports. The more they get the more theyll take it out of the XL package and go

"we have more football now you have to subscribe now and pay for our terrible pundits"

Steve Mcmanaman is still a pundit and yet went down with Setanta and ESPN. Surely he must be seen as a curse?!

A utterly terrible pundit IMO.

Definitely puts XL/Full House at risk if BT win more rights but then again I think the extra paid for CL this time already has put the next agreement at risk.

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

Don't think anyone has mentioned it

TalkTalk is launching a multi-channel TV service

https://www.uswitch.com/broadband/ne...el_tv_service/

---------- Post added at 20:53 ---------- Previous post was at 19:54 ----------

Talk Talk TV got less complaints per 100k customers in Q1 than Virgin Media

The top 3 for TV are Sky, Talk Talk & Virgin Media

Sky have already said they will not do that, Den. Even they have red lines they won't go beyond.

Talk is cheap and easy OB but it don't mean they are going to do what they say as politics is a good example of that.
