    It ain’t much, I know. But if you’ve got a fire stick anyway, Wtf? Might as well use it.

    This is just the start imo. I think we’ll see more of the likes of Amazon and Netflix challenging the long existing hegemony.

    The more they spread it out the more it costs, I'd rather it go to the clubs so that I can just watch every Liverpool game.

    It’ll go to the highest bidder(s) mate. You know that as well as I do.

    I assume the VOD aspect will IMHO be more valuable to
    them than live broadcast. A lot of people worldwide will be
    able to watch those games not long after the event at
    a time of their own convenience, without having to subscribe
    to a local broadcast provider.

    I believe it it’s for live broadcast.

    Give it 10-15 years and all TV content will be received over the internet. Not much need for dishes/antennae any more.

    Yeah that makes sense, no more boxes just online content.

    These guys are truly global ( Netflix especially) if they see money in this they’ll be all over it

    And I don’t think that necessarily means higher prices. Competition is always good, and because of their far larger global audience, Netflix can afford to cut their margins far finer than Sky or BT.

    Going that way now with Sky Q, which soon will be internet only. No dish.

    Sky are already getting their act together and are ditching satellite dishes.
    https://inews.co.uk/news/technology/sky-pushes-ahead-with-plan-to-ditch-satellite-dishes/

    Hopefully it will bring down prices as they're ridiculous and I'm sure this is in part to their huge installation/maintenance costs.

    Sky is a huge rip. I had the full package here - BT everything. BT used to be pretty much free if you were a BT broadband subscriber. Then slowly, up goes the price.

    In the end I was paying like £100 pm. Don’t get me wrong, I can easily afford it, but I thought, ‘nah, **** you mate, you’re taking the piss’.

    So out they went! :wink:

    Might take a bit longer than that to get everywhere up to speed internet wise.

    It’s all the little rips that piss me off, mate. Like. When I looked, they were offering Sky entertainment + Sky Sports £40. And next to free installation on the basic box.

    I thought, that ain’t bad, so I looked a bit more. Want Sky sports HD? That’ll be £5. Want entertainment HD? Another £5.

    Same old piss taking ****s. If Murdoch gets it back it’ll probably get worse.

    Not if the companies sort it out at their end, Netflix for example will run on dial up without buffering because it's loaded from their servers. My broadband is a **** speed but no problems at all.

    Use Mobdro, or if you have an old dodgy laptop or PC that you aint too bothered about if it gets Computer AIDS, there is a site called Premier League Lives, which streams EVERY game.
    Its riddled with pop-ups, trojans and other **** tho.
    My Anti Virus software used to throw a paddy when i went on there :)
