Here are screen grabs of the survey I mentioned, there was another side somewhere with no PL games as an option




I'm pretty sure we'll see some more changes with the Sky Sports channels , I recently completed another survey which hinted at possible changes.

What were the hints? Did they imply anything?

As I remember a lot was to do with specific channels for specific Sports , options of numbers like now or names (Sky Sports Premier League , Sky Sports Football , Sky Sports Variety) were a few I remember.

If I'm honest I can't think of the rest however I do remember thinking the questions seemed to suggest there could be some changes to the packaging of the channels but as you know surveys don't always lead to changes so watch this space.

Sounds interesting.

I guess if you separated packages so you can pick and mix based on the sports you are into it would solve the issue where say Cricket fans, F1 fans etc.. (rightly) complain about paying high subscriptions fuelled by rising cost of Premier League rights.

Great for Speedway and Boxing. My cousin was the captain for Edinburgh Monarchs until recently. He got me into the VIP area quite often. VIP was basically a portacabin with all the sandwiches, sausage rolls and warm tins of beer you can handle. Great night those. Always on a sunny Friday night in Armadale.

Well, if this is shown to massively increase subscribers in the US, you can't rule out something happening over here along these lines, Den.
