    More money to clubs. You are under no obligation to subscribe to Sky or whoever.

      Of course I'm not. I don't subscribe to Sky Sports. But everyone who does will be required to foot the bill. Sky aren't going to pay it out of their shareholders' pockets you know.

      Amazon could blow BT and Sky out of the water if they wanted. Not sure any of the other tech giants like Google, Facebook and Apple have any strategic reason to bid.
      Indeed, if Amazon were taking an interest then I would expect Netflix to keep an eye on proceedings as well!

      Poor old Sky. Anyone else up for doing a whip round so Sky can pay these ridiculous broadcasting rights?

      I think you'll find Sky subscribers are already doing that.

      The EPL have seven domestic TV packages, Sky have five and BT two.

      The next deal could result in the packages being split between more participants.

      The one thing driving Sky is that they need football, the tech companies don't, as the UK is an irrelevance in their global footprint.

      If you look at the size of the players, the US companies could easily blow our domestic players out of the market in the bidding, but what would be their motivation?

      Apple is worth £625 billion
      Amazon £357 billion
      Google £490 billion
      Netflix £57 billion
      Sky £16 billion
      BT £29 billion

      And where does that leave the home t v supporter? Does he have to subscribe to three or four t v providers in order to watch his team's games?

      It is the fan who pays ......as usual.
      I am still miffed that today's game is on BT and not Sky.

      And rightly expose their exploitation of the global tax system? Seems fair enough to me and I'm not even a Corbyn tree hugging leftie

      I'd love to hear the rationale behind that comment.
      Half measures availed us nothing.
