I know 15m sounds low compared to some of the figures we hear for sports rights but the thing is it is only 3 days - one of which is a weekday.

For comparison, ITV currently pays about 3m per CL...

Back to the familiar pattern - when Aviva rugby has the PL lead-in it rates substantially higher than when it doesn't.

Just out of interest, is the above stat referring to CL games only?

The total number of games shown isn't a very meaningful stat given that in the...

In the past, hasn't the Wed 2nd pick been presented on site when an English team at home? Not 100% certain but that's how I recall it.

Jones was in the studio tonight.

Eastern European countries can play at 5pm on weekdays for weather reasons.

But at weekends anyone can play in the early slot - I think most England Sat / Sun home games will be at 5pm.

The Aviva rugby on BT rates quite a bit better when there is a PL game before it to provide a lead-in.

Some analysis of this was posted on here towards the end of last season.

At the very same second the graphic comes up:

Shots on Target:
