Re: 897 million reasons for a BT price rise

Similar to now?
Both finals to be free on BT Sport, as well as top matches from earlier rounds

Whilst the details are not yet finalised, I have every expectation the amount of Champions League on free TV will be significantly reduced. BT aren't primarily a TV company, CL is a stick to beat people towards phone lines and broadband.

It also announced it will show a selection of these new matches for free on BT Sport, even to homes that have not signed up to the channels.

The finals of each tournament will be showcased in this fashion along with a selection of top matches from earlier rounds. Fans will also be delighted to know that each participating British team will feature for free at least once each season.
I know what "once" means, but I wonder what "showcased" means?

It was only terrestrial because the rights were also shared with ITV. ITV lost out can't blame BT for that

We're blaming BT for fleecing its telephone and broadband customers in order to buy football rights away from free TV.


Like Sky did to its TV customers to finance their broadband arm you mean?

Since pay TV is a luxury item relative to telephone and broadband, I don't consider that analogous.

In this context I would imagine it to mean 'showing off our content that is usually restricted to subscribing customers, to everybody free of charge' in the same manner that Sky sometimes do/did.

I`m afraid this is the greed that is now endemic in football these days, I`m a current BT Sport subscriber, will I keep subbing ? Hmm only if its minimal cost, I certainly would not be paying Sky type prices to watch football. Also as other folk have pointed out anything to stick two fingers up at Murdoch is fine in my book laugh

I wonder if it means 'showing selected highlights with half the screen covered by adverts' as BT usually do.

Charging my aunt £1.75 for privacy and caller display on her BT Basic account to help finance live football coverage certainly wont please her!

Perhaps the football players should take a pay cut as well as all the other associated fat cats involved, that's all football is about these days,Money
As it's no doubt them who dictate the price for the rights to show it on tv ,
Basic telephony charges should not be hiked for this, why should all BT customers be forced to subsidise BT sport ?

Footballers, like film stars, have a talent that attracts certain members of the paying public, if those "audiences" are willing to pay to see such "super stars" at the going rate then that is fair enough...
