Disgusting.


Im glad I stream it for free, I'll start paying when clubs stream their games on their website or amazon sell individual team packages for the season.

Yeah I cancelled my BT and won't bother with Sky via Now TV either.

It's insane that people all over the world can watch all of our games, but we have to pay a small fortune to watch them legally.

I simply have an Amazon 4K fire stick in the TV with Vola Sports APK Download for Android, FireStick, iOS, PC sideloaded on and use Nord VPN for hiding my ISP. Works very well and for films/TV series I use Cinema HD | Download Cinema HD APK on Android (LATEST)

Don't have any problems at all watching live games. Sky and BT will eventually implode. Does anybody have any idea how much they charge a pub per month ? It must be a fucking astronomical amount. Quite a few where I live have 'dodgy boxes' installed and they pay an initial set up fee then a small monthly amount for a pin number. Illegal maybe but much, much cheaper.

Great thing with the firesticks is they are portable so if you go to a mates house or stay away in a hotel you can just connect it up to the TV via HDMI socket and then the WiFi and away you go.

Sounds like a good idea. Some of the streaming sites have pop-up porn pages which is really annoying if I want to watch a game with my kids. I can't risk an anime muff flashing up when I'm trying to explain the offside trap to them.

I have Sky with phone contract and pay BT monthly for other sport, too. Looks like all but Brighton are on those channels this month so I’ve lucked out. I know clubs are trying to recoup some of the costs of having no fans, but I see it more as a trial to see if the PPV model works for if this continues a long time.

I haven’t studied the match list in detail, but it looks a bit like the smaller prem teams are ending up PPV, and they’re probably the ones who need match day revenue most.

Cheaper than a ST, though. (Although I bet you still get Utd / Woolwich pundits)
 
Ridiculous.

I'm paying 10€ per month for top5 leagues, leagues from Portugal, Russia, Turkey, Netherland, Belgium... + NBA, NFL, EL, tennis...

Again, it's ridiculos that people from England are paying so much more than everyone else...
 
I'm sorry that the Billionaire clubs are hurting but so are all the mere mortal people.

Adding a pay per view option on top of the already obscene amount of money that I pay them already is just plain old taking the piss.


I'm afraid it's a no from me


:avbfu:
 
I knocked in sky a few years ago and opted for Bt but knew fine the cost of that would go up so when I rehashed my contract as I’ve got Bt for phone etc I didn’t commit to sports and don’t think I will but out of interest regards Sky what’s the cost of a Sports package? I had the family+sports 4, 5 years ago and was paying nearly £70 then.

£5 would be a decent price point i would consider just to do away with all the shite streams. £15 is ridiculous but I guess if you price it too low people will start asking why they pay so much for sky and bt
5 bucks for just one game is still way too expensive.

10 a month for ALL games would be okay. I might even go for 15-20 quid, maybe. But 15 PER GAME? Holy shit, the unbelievable amount of greed.

I would probably pay a fiver for certain bigger games just to avoid any annoyance with buffering. Wouldnt do it for every game though agree

Ya but imagine if you're at home with a few buddies and you want to watch all the games on a "super Sunday" - 3 games maybe? That's 45 fucking quid lmao. That should be a month's worth of subscription that gets you ALL games.

It's just a scam.
