Premiership coverage

I've full pack sky wiv multiroom and hd to the tune of 160euro a month
So I sat down to watch Everton vs Manu in full hd 1080i on my 52" full hd 3d tv with Dolby digital 5.1 surround sound and I'm greeted with some gob on sky sports 1 holding a microphone commentating the game!!!!

Are they having a laugh!!!! Flick thru and none of the games are on bt sport either, not on itv, bbc rte,tv3???
Who has bought the rights??? Are they selfishly keeping them to themselves???

it is a bit of a joke. you want to watch your teams games throughout the season, yet they're not all broadcast. its crazy, cant understand it myself. clubs will have to sell their own rights.

edit....watched the liverpool match on an illegal stream. had no other option.

Swansea v Newcastle was on BT Sport tonight

The problem here is the Premier League and they pathetic rights package that they offer for Ireland and the UK. All games were shown elsewhere around Europe.

Thats just about impossible. Can you give a breakdown as to how you're paying €160 per month?

The OP just said he had mutiroom and as this is the satellite forum I don't think broadband and phone come into the equation as he was taking about a Sky television package.

wiz was it a feed on 15west and what was the frequency? all live games are as shown on livesat and it did indicate that only swansea was on uk. I think 5 games were on 10east.

160 euro should equate to a motorised dish and more ingenuity to get ALL games.

I could have watched it there!!!

What network in europe is carrying the majority of the sport?

Is Al Jazeera sport, ADMC or Canal digitaal the best subscribtion service to go for in terms of sport?

I noticed the "red button" was inactive during the games and then reopened at 10pm to show highlights - where the streams active during the games - inother words if I used my card in a specialised reciever - could one have accessed the red button streams during the games?

While I have a motorized system - I couldn't be bothered to stroll through hundreds of feeds to access the content I'm looking for - Im paying Sky 160euro a month to do that for me!!!

Once Sky no longer offered ESPN ... yet still charged the same price this season - that was enough for me!! And yes they STILL want €15 extra to watch your premium sub in HD. Taking the P*ss comes to mind.

After paying Sky a sports sub for years ... I decided to look down the illegal route ... you would be surprised how good it is these days.

I prefer legal services (love Netflix and Spotify for intstance ... brilliant value for €8 and €10 a month) -

€100 a month to watch selected games in HD = ridiculous, no matter what your financial situation is.


Sky/BT/Premier League .... the bubble is finally going to burst!
