I'm not arguing as I've got BT Sports, but how are they able to show 10 fixtures live over 3 days, bit out of the ordinary isn't it?

Very annoyed at Everton failing to extend Palace's losing run.
They are just one point behind us again and a winnable home game next up.

We're going to need a top performance on Wednesday to keep them below us.

the PL rights are sold in 4/5 blocks (to try and maximise revenue) . although they rolled over the contract last time with the value of the contract being flat for another 3 years (nearly £5bn)

They are mostly Friday nights, Saturday lunchtime, Saturday evening, Sunday and Monday with the occasional midweek games especially at Christmas.
its to give some broadcasters the chance to just buy up the rights to a few games or one block (so as to encourage new entrants like the streamers - thus Amazon in 2018)
Some of these blocks - only several a season are all 10 games on a PL matchday or week - eg: Amazon Prime have several of these (20 games a season i think) , they had one a couple of weeks ago and i think they have the post Xmas midweek slot (eg: when Brighton are away to Chelsea) . BT have one - this week.

Sky have the biggest chunk or blocks - 128 games mostly on Saturday night and Sunday. BT have a few - 52 which are mostly on Saturday lunchtime and (this block).
Amazon have just a couple of those all ten games slots and BBC just have the highlights - MOTD on BBC ONE and iPlayer . Sky have the Youtube highlights.

Last year - as grounds were shut - it was carved out so all of the partners (Sky, BT, Amazon and the BBC all had some live games as there was a need to make all the games available - even 3pm kick offs)

I just don't understand Norwich. How can a side that have now twice been promoted as Champions, with points to spare, suddenly turn shitehouse the moment they get into the Premier League. :shrug:
