Not read the article but I highly doubt they're going to offer Sky Sports in HD because there's no requirement for Sky to give them access to the HD feeds.

Can't see Sky playing ball at a time that...

Sky's commentary teams are used by pretty much all international broadcasters - e.g. Fox in the U.S. use the Sky audio, Supersport in the whole sub-Saharan Africa region use the Sky audio, beIN...

As usual, I think there's a lot of over thinking going on in this thread. IMO, they will do something along the lines of a 'bolt on' for all of their customers to add to their existing package.

This is similar to what they do in Spain. Canal+ own the rights and have a dedicated stand-alone channel - Canal+ Liga de Campeones - that shows all CL games on a match choice basis as well as the...

I really don't see the fuss here. Provided the English teams are covered by BT's main channels - with one on a FTA basis - and in HD, I really don't see the problem. Do Sky currently offer their red...

Why would you be VERY surprised? They've got to try and shift their own platform at some point. Sky have exclusives (Atlantic?) so why can't BT? It's not as if they're holding back any of the live...

Indeed, and you could also say that the current arrangement was also designed with Sky/ESPN after ESPN publicly stated how a 38-match offering would be more appealing than the then 23 matches they...

Precisely what's thought when I first read it too. It leaves you thinking that the next tender will be a straight forward process in which Sky maintain their 116 games while the Premier League add...

The poster isn't deluded at all. I think he's got a valid point.

Well that's the thing - as far as I'm aware, there is no UEFA feed as such - they seem to send out the Sky comms around the world so effectively the Sky audio is the 'world feed'. You'll get the odd...

They didn't schedule main games on SS1 & 2 though? Champions League coverage was on SS2 & SS4 - with occasional games also being shown on Sky1 - that's 2 channels not available on the BT TV service,...

I'm aware of the requirements re important/high profile events but they could easily have got around that by sticking a game on SS2 as they did up to last season and they'd likely avoid any backlash...

It's such a bizarre situation. They've let them (randomly!) have SS5 on the Vision box but they're still not letting them have any SS channels on the YouView box. Why on earth give them access to SS5...

Mistakes happen. The full minutes silence was later replayed in full with no interruptions.

How do you know they've got it wrong? US coverage begins 11am ET so for all we know, Sky could be increasing this years coverage with having it all on SS4.

It's only a new tournament - not a full on tennis revolution a la the Premier League and Football League! It's got modern 'icon' players as well as past champions and 'legends' taking part.
