I dont mean to be rude, but when I read that sentence I want to shout ‘CHEEKY BASTARDS’. If NTL/Virgin were to win the remaining three packages, which apparently include Package A (23 first choice games), you could see this happening if Prem Plus continues –
* Sky Sports (+ Family Pack) – 46 games – ?25 per month [/b]or[/b] Sky World – 46 games – ?35 per month * PremPlus – 23 games – ?30 a year (?2.50 per month) * Virgin Sports channel – ?25 per month
Total Cost – ?52.50 or ?62.50
Read and weep. Surely the FAPL should insist PremPlus ends in such a situation???
imho we pay Sky enough via their sports package to watch all their broadcast football, whether on their sports channels or Setanta. It’s bad enough being locked into 12 months’ contracts. If I have to pay on top of a subscription to watch eg Arsenal vs Barcelona, I would want to cancel. Don’t think it’s right that one broadcaster has all the rights to the most popular sport in the world. The only channels that should be add-on pay channels are for the sad people who want to watch Man Utd TV etc all day
