I suspect they will look into unencypting their Sky channel if there is enough demand/backlash- it would be great to see a game (any game) in HD per match day.

What have the viewing figures been...

Well considering that a new iPhone is out in a month that would seem a fair deal.

The battery looks a little small to me. However for 200 it certainly is keenly priced.

I'm intrigued to see how Sky/Virgin price 4k when it is available- I doubt that they would try to charge much more if at all. 4k could make the HD charge obsolete, especially if the likes of the BBC...

It wouldn't make too much sense to have a tier of sport that is available just to those without sport from a sheer cost point.

It makes you wonder why they acquired The Open rights for such a premium when the coverage sits well on the BBC.

Sky's bidding strategy for sports rights is currently all over the place.

Didn't the Wimbledon committee state a couple of years ago that they wanted the event on terrestrial TV and they could afford to do so easily in the long term?

Probably not in short- ratings are on the decline, the sport is seen as rather dull and I don't know where they'd screen the races. Sky will likely take over the exclusive rights soon as I don't see...

With 4k rolling out I think the HD charge could be on the way out. Interesting to see how Sky counteract this with their own broadband/4k offers.

I think the F1 and the Six Nations are at risk. Beyond that, I doubt Sky or BT would be interested in much of note in the BBC's portfolio.

To be fair to BT the cost of this new channel plus HD could be less than HD on Sky. I'm intrigued by the structure of their 4k rollout and pricing.

Didn't the BBC bid 50 million over five years only to be trumped by Sky's bid of 75 million? To be fair to the BBC that's a very strong bid.

It was a great rope a dope strategy by BT. Has anyone got the viewing figures year on year for the Champions League on Sky? I suspect there isn't much between when they started in 2003 to now.
