No I wouldn't as I think it would be a waste of money. I watch live matches on a stream instead at no extra cost and the quality is as good as watching on TV most of the time. Like today for example I watched Everton Vs Liverpool, Man City Vs Arsenal & Newcastle Vs Man United all on streams and it was fine.

I saw a headline that said this new move from TV broadcasters would drive more people to watch illegal streams and it's easy to understand why, especially in the middle of a pandemic when income is harder to come by for many people. Also it was a way to watch 3 PM kick offs on Saturdays that never got shown live on TV.

Same here a lot of my mates say that there less and less streaming sites now as they all go slower and sky must be closing them. I pay for Sky Sports Premier League and Football and usually get to watch a lot of the games especially Super Sunday as it’s a day I sit and relax and watch the footy in peace at home. I don’t see the point in getting bt because I wouldn’t get to watch the champions league as the wife’s home during the week and wouldn’t let me watch it after work.

I used to have BT Sport as part of a broadband package I had with BT a few years ago but cancelled when I switched broadband provider. BT Sport really isn't all that and the commentary there is quite poor but they seem to be getting almost all the major competitions now.

The streams I watch are normally from NBC Sports which is an American channel so Sky might not be able to shut it down. For Champions League matches it's another American channel which has Kate Abdo as the presenter but I don't know what the name of it is which again is mostly in good picture and sound quality. Sometimes Sky Sports appears there as well.

Certainly not as a neutral, and almost certainly not if it was my own club. I doubt I'll pay any at £10 in the Championship where clubs get a decent wedge of iFollow, so almost certainly not at 50% more, I'm not sure what the % split of revenues ends up being?

I always stream stuff, but if the games were £4.95 I might be temped. This current price is extortinate though. I get you'd pay £40-50 for a ticket to watch the match, but it is not the same experience.

No i support a lower league team and have no interest in the premier league. I dont have sky sports and probably never will.
I despise what the premier league has become and what it stands for.

I wouldn't pay anything to watch the Premier League. I watched the free matches on Pick and enjoyed them but it didn't give me any incentive to want to pay for them.

I see Sky have refused to release viewing figures as they are sensitive lol. Also the Burnley West Brom game was a 0-0 bore draw, god help anyone who paid for that

I subscribe to Sky Sports and BT Sport but I certainly wouldn't pay for these box office matches. I'm quite happy it's back to six live TV matches each weekend as I don't have time to watch any more than that.
