No different to Sky getting the Cricket in place of the BBC.

Don't give BT $ports or $ky any of your hard earned cash. For a fraction of the price, subscribe to Al Jazeera Sports via a VPN to watch every Champions League and Premier League game live. On the downside you'll have to put up with Richard keys and Andy Gray frown

My preference is for a menu pricing approach, with each element on its own separate contractual terms.


That's why I stopped watching live TV and having to pay for a TV licence - most of what is on the BBC now is of no interest to me. If I could have paid a reduced licence fee for a news and documentaries package, without having to cover the cost of sport, soaps and light entertainment, that would have suited me...

So what's the subscription for Al Jazeera Sports? About a tenner a month?

I think AJS charge around a fiver a month plus a few quid for a vpn so no more than £10 a month and you can watch as much footy as you want. Google is your friend smile

I see a difference, since Sky do not control UK telecom infrastructure in the same way as BT do, and in doing so BT can exploit that revenue for eye watering football contracts.

It's pretty easy to ditch Sky, just cancel the TV subscription.

On the other hand, it's much harder to ditch BT. Essentially it means ditching a POTS landline completely (unless in Hull), because one way or another the money will feed the BT Group machine and their expensive football ventures, via BT Retail, BT Wholesale or BT Openreach.

this post on bbc comments.

There's a crucial issue that no one seems to be mentioning: BT are being subsidised by the tax payer by 90pence in every £ to lay down broadband. Which BT then owns. And will rent back to the taxpayer. Who paid 90% of the cost!!! So when BT have £900 million to spend on sports WHY THE HELL ARE THEY GETTING SUBSIDIES?!!!


Is interesting as arguably BT are gaining customers from the subsidised rollout and this has then made the potential customers of their sports higher in turn.

It seems BT have become a new sky, spending a fortune on football rights and using other services to subsidise With sky the poor people paying for the basic entertainment packages subsidise the football (notice the annual inflation on those packages).
