TV Rights, best avoided


#1544

Pity bt’s coverage was good.


#1545

Terrible news for our domestic league.


#1546

The worst thing about it will be the loss of Sutty for SPL coverage.


#1547

Looks like Eleven Sports may be going under.


#1548

that’s Leeds United fucked


#1549

Saw that. 50,000 subscriptions so far. Even if they paid the £6 a month from inception to now that’s only about £1.5m. I don’t know what the rights cost them but I’d venture UFC alone cost multiples of that.
Sky were paying £18m for the la liga rights though it’s possible they got them for a little less. But still a long long way from break even.

UFC pulling the plug on them now, and IMG talking about taking the rights back off them for la liga & serie a as well

They needed a TV channel to make any inroads. If you’re internet only lads can just get streams that are as good quality for most games anyway and also your internet needs to be good enough to keep up with the live game anyway

Can I have my apology? @The_Selfish_Giant


#1553

Lot of apologies owing by the looks of it.


#1554

Why is there no Irish ground football games on the list?


#1555

Was there some special Room to Improve episode aired last year?


#1556

Because they weren’t on free to air TV I’d imagine


#1557

And the highest share of the market all year… Galway roasters v limerick roasters :facepunch:


#1558

Daniel O Donnell.


#1559

Great viewing figures for the Ireland Argentina in the rugby


#1560

If we doubted it at all, Liverpool are Ireland’s club.


#1561

We all watched it in Supermacs
A win win


#1562

When used tony o donoghue be annoying MON then?

I thought RTE had the rights but open to correction


#1563

20k watched the hurling final on big screen at the GG . So More watched than Room to Improve & the soccer ball between England & Croatia.

I would have thought RM v Liverpool would have been bigger .
