Doesn't compare too badly with various reasonably well known channels - eg Eurosport...

Yes - looking at the figures as a whole for BBC and Sky:

1) No Tiger is definitely a factor. I read that CBS figures were also well down - though can't remember by how much.

2) Low key finish...

Yes, absolutely.

With Sky's existing portfolio (ie including CL) they had no need for FA Cup so they obviously didn't think it was worth spending 25m+ per year on it.

But (and as I posted at the...

1st 40%
2nd 30%
3rd 15%
4th 15%

So the difference between 2nd and 3rd is worth a few million in CL prize...

No formal announcement but from memory reports suggested Sky paid in the region of 10m to 12m per year last time.

It obviously depends on how important the English club game is to you.
