    So now all champs league and europa league matches will be on BT till 2021.

    I really do not like BT coverage, wonder if that means more money for the club.

    I think both BT and Sky are sh*te but BT are the lesser of two evils... I think? - I tent to watch games with the sound low these days, commentary has gone massively downhill over the last few years.

    Here's the detail below.........i thought they were not happy with the reach and tinkle poor viewing figures they were getting.....suppose money talks? Not even highlights on ITV anymore.


    BT Sport has extended its TV rights for the Champions League and Europa League until 2021 in a deal worth £1.2bn.

    The company has been broadcasting Europe's elite club competitions since 2015 under the terms of an £897m deal agreed in 2013.

    BT Sport, owned by Britain's biggest broadband and mobile operator BT, is a paid subscription service.

    But it said it would make clips, weekly highlights, and both finals available to watch for free on social media.

    The new deal gives BT Sport exclusivity across all live games and highlights for the first time - meaning there will be no weekly highlights shown on free-to-air broadcaster ITV.

    Europe's top four domestic leagues are to be guaranteed four places each in the group stages of the Champions League from the 2018-19 season.

    Other changes to the competition will see 'double-header' nights in the group stage, with matches kicking off at both 18:00 and 20:00 UK time.

    Market Pool (€507 million) Distribution:
    UEFA has announced €507 million in market pool money for each of the next three champions league seasons. Which will be distributed according proportional value of each TV market (Country/League). So the market pool awarded to each country’s league will be distributed among the teams from that league according to their performance in previous league season and how many matches they will play in the given champions league season.

    English clubs will benefit the most with the new Market Pool distribution system and If an english club were to win the champions league in 2016-17 season they will earn more than €110 million (around €55m from performance based + another €50m/€60m with market pool).

    Better than ITV17 - at least BT shows matches in a resolution from this century.

    The ITV coverage looked like it was filmed on a Nokia 7650.

    FFS....

    I know British clubs don't play their home games at 18:00 in these fixtures but it's still sh*te.

    Not to do with the coverage per se, but not being on terrestrial tv has largely killed off all general/popular interest in European competitions.

    I suppose they think people who previously contented themselves with free-to-air highlights will now subscribe. Good luck with that, if other punters think the way I do.

    It will just cause interest to further wane. Like happened with Cricket, Boxing and Rugby League in the 00s, and F1 in recent years.

    Ffs, their coverage is brick and interest just won't be there, especially for the EL.

    I do think that some of the matches should be on terrestrial tv. I think that by creating a monopoly on the viewing rights harms the exposure to everyday people.

    Personally, I am not a fan of BT and the way they broadcast and much prefer Sky as it feels a bit more professional and smooth but I have access to both so I shall continue to watch I suppose although it is rare for me to watch CL games much throughout the season

    Times have changed (changing)..Terrestrial tv is irrelevant these days to most people under 50. Consuming content via various other channels.

    Viewing figures are down across most of football. BUT a lot of people are watching that cant be counted ;).

    It's a bad situation for the likes of BT, Sky, ITV. They battle it out, inflating the cost of their tender bid just to secure the services of the golden goose when in reality it could be a lame duck. I just dont think the figures add up....but they're petrified to lose out as it's prime content (in their eyes)

    I read somewhere that when we played Chelsea (at home i think) the viewing figure was greater in the US than in the UK (BT game)

    I wonder if we'll ever see UEFA, the Premier League etc just skip these broadcasters and do it themselves. The Premier League already kind of do - they produce the worldwide feed and then sell the rights to local broadcasters. Why not get rid of them and have the fan subscribe directly via an app?

    Of course - I consume as much media on streams/torrents as anyone else (I was there from Napster).

    But I really noticed the water cooler chat stopped on European football the second it disappeared from terrestrial. It's the casuals (and the next generation) that are dropping-off, not the hardcore fans.

    It wouldn't surprise me if its a bit of a double whammy for BT. Casuals cant be bothered to watch as its not on terrestrial and the hardcore are moving to 'alternative methods' to view. Especially as BT Sport becomes 'payable' as the free loss leader period expires.
