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

The expectation from boxing and UFC fans is that the upcoming Mayweather Vs. McGregor fight will be shown on SKY Box Office for around £20.00.

Their UK media tour hits London this Friday with the UK broadcaster being confirmed. Their conference takes place at Wembley Arena shortly after the weigh in's take place for Chris Eubank J.r Vs. Arthur Abraham which will be shown on ITV Box Office this coming Saturday.

I have a sneaky suspicion that ITV might have landed the rights for the circus that is Mayweather Vs. McGregor. This would be a huge thumb in the eye for SKY Sports.

We shall wait and see. My crystal ball has known to have around a 10% success rate lol

Yep it is certainly a circus Chad and frankly IMO it makes the great sport of boxing look like a laughing stock.

This is an example of where having your own channels gets you an inferior deal with Sky!

Looks like they will go for a social media / streaming model.

Interesting times. SKY launch a dedicated golf channel and the PGA look to find their own model.

How much live content, roughly, will SKY show on this gold channel? I'm not a gold fan at all. I have no idea what these events are and how long they last for. I do know the Ryder Cup.

No, this is one of the 4 majors

Interesting stuff, sounds like they are going to stream it on Twitter or something

That's ok for clips but if I'm sitting down for hours to watch the final round of a major I'd only watch it on TV!

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

I wouldn't at all be surprised if the US PGA had plans already in place to live stream on someone like Twitter and this put pressures on the negotiations with Sky.
