    Sean, just cancelled my subscription with a month’s notice. Our game re Sheff United has been moved to Box Office – would have been a great treat for a Saturday night but for these changes. More Greed unfortunately.

    My understanding based on everything I’ve read is that the only games on this new pay per view service are games that were previoysly unscheduled for coverage the out cry is against the cost of viewing those games at £14:95 per game.

    Going forwards on games yet to be scheduled if for instance Manchester United v Liverpool was scheduled to appear on pay per view when it would have originally been part of the Sky/ BT Sport packages that would be a major problem.

    I suspect given the outrage at the cost especially given the current circumstances in the country there might be a possible revisting that price.

    But fans can’t have it both ways they can’t clamour for new signings as they have in the Summer transfer window and at the same time with no money coming through the turnstiles for the Club’s criticise the Club’s for trying to generate some new revenue streams when they are also under pressure to provide significant support to the Championship.

    However despite the outrage at the cost of pay per view on top of the Sky and BT Sport’s package costs for football Project Big Picture is probably a much bigger subject.

    If it was 15 quid for a weekend pass which allowed you to watch the 5/6 games that weren’t already scheduled for broadcast on bt or sky I think that would be OK. All the PL will achieve with this is cancelled subscriptions and increased piracy. At least when you could see all the games via subscription the advertisers were assured of audience levels, can’t quantify those watching illegally and can’t earn from it as consequence.

    You’re too kind Sean.

    I may well end up capitulating and pay for the Chelsea games too.😊

    The Broadcasting Networks or the Premier League need to come up with a Value for money Scheme. Now Tv is sort of getting there in recent times, but that too can be pricey.

    Need a One For All type of pass with incentives and money-back schemes.

    £15 for a 0-0 draw?

    If there are 2 box office matches for example on the same day, you end up paying £30.

    One match was total dross according to reports. Not really the player’s fault as such, but why not offer this as a day pass or significantly reduce to £5 or even £2:50?

    You’ll reel in more ‘subscribers’! 😛

    It’s robbery. John Henry has recently taken a lot of stick (even from Sky, which is comical) for trying to exploit the coronavirus situation, yet here Sky are doing the same and although there is definitely some outrage amongst fans, it seems to be a lot more socially acceptable for Sky to be doing it. This “your helping the PL” thing sounds like it came out of the marketing dept.

    I already thought sports packages were way too expensive and had been refusing to pay those prices, so you can guess that I am scoffing heavily at this latest trend, which they will 100% try to keep going after the virus is under control.

    Everyone decides what is acceptable to them and what doesnt offend their means etc but cheers Nil for saying that enough is enough. Unfortunately,. I think far more will be buying into it than opting out of their services but they will notice the people who are voting with their pockets too.

    Pay per View is a PL Clubs iniative not a Broadcasters iniative with PL Clubs voting 19 to 1 in favour of Pay per view with only Leicester voting against it. The Broadcasters as I understand it are only getting paid the cost they incur in covering the games.

    £14:95 is too much though I think fans will only be interested in paying for their own games and the pick up will be low imo at £14:95.

    The suggestion is that the pick up over the weekend was low so there’s every chance if that continues that the costs will come down. Hopefully!🤞

    Fans could unfortunately be priced out even through Television. There are different sets of Broadcasters and that leads to multiple channels and individual subscription fees.

    There isn’t a ‘one size fits all’ designed so far that’s ultimately value for money for the Customer.

    The boxes and streams from elsewhere maybe an option, but never foolproof.

    The Top of The Tree are catered for as always and they’re the ones supplemented that come first from this from what I see. It’s understandable thinking about sources of income and player’s salaries.

    We can’t use the point all the time of “wanting the best players”. Something needs to give because it’s the Poor that are ultimately hit.
