Could being the key word if reports are true ESPN are in a bit of trouble, losing subscribers at an alarming rate.
But they are already working on a streaming service.
ESPN Inc., a joint venture owned by The Walt Disney Company (80%) and Hearst Communications (20%). They just need a makeover and refocus, money is not a problem.

There's nothing wrong with a little speculation. It's just that the debate, as interesting as it is, gets a bit repetitive after a while, especially when it is spread over several threads. It's understandable for one party to argue that everything is white and for another to argue that everything is black. In reality though, pretty much everything is grey.

Re: Netflix/Streaming Services

This is pretty poor advice on accessing material illegally, in my opinion. It does not even mention IPTV providers who charge a subscription (which could lead some to believe that they are accessing material legally), the use of VPNs to access geo-blocked material, etc, and frankly this scare mongering over the electrical safety of Kodi boxes is pathetic. Sure, purchasing such equipment from dodgy dealers could present problems, but if you purchase from a reputable dealer, this isn't a problem at all. Just like any other electrical equipment, actually!

Re: Netflix/Streaming Services

Honestly, this advice is laughable. It's almost as if the internet doesn't exist and they expect us to believe everything they tell us.

As for the safety aspect, it was a 'little' skewed as this Torrent Freak article points out.

Re: Netflix/Streaming Services

With the re-runs of Game of Thrones on Sky Atlantic coming to an end in about 4 weeks' time, I suspect that the full 7 series will return to Now TV either just before or just after Christmas.

I would have thought it would return now to coincide with their rather generous Black Friday offers, the two in tandem could entice quite a few to the Now TV platform.

Re: Netflix/Streaming Services

This should put to bed as one of the reasons why Amazon or other streaming giants won't enter the big UK football rights market as others can speculate wildly till the cows come home but the numbers and the massive cost of them simply don't add up and never will.

Very good link but i still wouldn't rule out Amazon or another streaming company to go for rights, wether or not they'll get them is to be seen.

I'm not convinced by this. It is true that the cost involved would be high, but then, Amazon have huge pockets.

Frankly, I can't see Amazon making these matches available at the same cost as currently charged for Amazon Prime Video, that would be ridiculous. They would probably want to set up their own pay channels on Amazon Prime and charge a separate subscription for their football premiership channel. This would probably be less that Sky Sports currently charges because Amazon would offer only football on that channel.

Of course, not everyone is prepared to access OTT services such as Amazon, so I would expect these channels to be offered to all other platforms that were to pay for it. None of the restrictive nonsense promoted by Sky, who withhold some of their sports channels to other platforms like BT. There is also scope to sell matches or even just highlights or snippets to other platforms like Google and YouTube.

Amazon could structure their pricing so that Amazon Prime subscribers could subscribe to their football channel(s) at a reduced price compared with non-Prime Amazon members, and they could also ensure that other platforms had to charge more for the channel(s) than non-Prime Amazon subscribers.

There is a lot that Amazon could do to make this work for them, although it is a daunting task. However, a lack of money to bid is not a problem for them.
