For streaming TV generally a connection of 5 Mbps (5 Meg) or faster is needed, the faster the better so it can cope with people in the club using the WiFi too. Sky can be delivered over satellite which will make a difference, and so can BT Sport too, if broadband is slow in the area.

In terms of costs, yes Sports packages in the business side are expensive, since the presumption is that you make money by having the sports. Have you talked with Sky and BT sales staff outlining size of club etc, as this usually has a bearing on the price you pay.

Define "Sport". No single supplier provides all "Sport".

(If you are talking Premiership football then a good internet connection together with a Roku box with a Now TV Sky Sports subscription, would be totally illegal))

BT Sport for a 'sports club' is £77 a month (ex VAT) - https://btsportbusiness.com/cost-calculator/

Sky's prices are dependent on the rateable value of your premises but I think they start at £100 (ex VAT) for the basic channels (no movies/sports).

Just as an aside, my Roku 2, for less than £40, gives me 1080p and DD5.1, when streamed, for all the UK catch up services, Netflix, Now TV, and zillions of other channels. The only shortfall, at the moment, is the lack of Amazon Instant, (which I have via my Sony BR player anyway).

vipbox and wiziwig do a very good job for free. I realise it's not what the OP was looking for, but just making the point that ALL sport worldwide can be found in one place for free. Far more than could be accessed by all paid services in any one country.

But these are illegal as they breach UK copyright laws - a sports/social club could find themselves in a lot of trouble if they get caught.

If you insist upon correcting me, then at least get your facts right. It may well be illegal for folks to retransmit the likes of their Sky stream, but it is NOT illegal to watch these streams if not downloading. Not that it stopped the likes od Andrew banning me unfairly for two weeks the last time I mentioned picture quality. I have already stated I was just making a point and understood it as not what the OP was looking for, so why do you nitpick?
