    I'm surprised the tv companies didn't try and get the price down

    Because there is a chance they might be outbid. Dazn just beat sky italia for rights to serie a. Netfix etc... might want to throw a bid in.

    This isn't fully complete, there is a couple of weeks for someone to challenge the governments decision. Show that they can do a better deal.

    I have never liked 1 Disney movie. Less money is going down the ladder, they also did not want to put the bid out to public tender because it would likely resulted in even less.

    Viewing figures for sky and BT are not great anyway I guess they thought some guaranteed money is better then none rather then a bidding war in these covid times. What will be interesting is if viewing figures in normal times if they continue to decrease. What the price will be for that deal.

    They are paying for 20 games a season they just have to show the other ones. We are basically subsidising the peasant clubs. What a time to be alive eh?

    Sky and bt were not in it for the viewing figures as such. Both sports channels make a loss. It was the broadband that got them the money. People wanting to watch football would usually get the broadband package as well.

    So what he's saying is that we can't watch our team on TV because other clubs can't produce a product that people want.
