This seems a terrible idea from both leagues unless these games actually end up on TV somehow (which I've read is possible through sub-letting). Hardly anyone is going to subscribe to subscription service just for these leagues, so the end result is they get far less people watching their games which in the long run is bad for their product.

Watched the last two hours of USPGA and it was fine. Also watched Italian Serie C playoffs at the end of last season through Elevensports. That was just 9.99 euros for all the games. I only watched three or four of them but the picture quality was good and I can't remember any buffering problems. They're talking about a choice of Serie A and La Liga games each weekend and the price seems good to me.

Did get a decent reduction from BT Sports of £12 per month but tied in for 18 months. Keeping it on for the Champions League.

At least 70 seconds behind live for all sports. At what point do you stop calling it live? Not good for liquidity on here. I wonder will the bookies pressure them to speed up the pics, as they will want to advertise with them? They need to get their channel onto tv as a lot of esp older people won't be ársed watching on computers, that might speed things up and boost ad revenue from bookies.

I'm sure they do but I'm talking about the mug punter who likes to bet while watching the match, there's a reason why the ads during live footy are full of bookie ads. Bookies might lose a lot of revenue from those mugs and might do something about it, hopefully.

I haven't seen any of their streams but I heard that they were almost 2 mins behind in the golf. That is way slower than Sky. They were 70 secs behind live for the Barca v Boca friendly the other night. Sky are more like 10 secs behind for footy.

Does anyone know what they have paid for the UK rights they own ?

I'm guessing £33M pa.

So at £6 a month they will need near 500k subscriptions to make anything back.

I'd guess a clasico would get about 500k viewers in UK. A regular Barca or Real game maybe 200k and too small to register for other games.

But that would be Sky/Virgin subscribers. Many of those will simply not have bothered with this.

I cannot see anything other than a big loss. Perhaps they make enough profit in other countries to cover it and just see this as a 'loss leader' type venture to get brand recognition in the UK.
Report n88uk August 28, 2018 10:28 PM BST
Sky were paying £18m a year for La Liga rights but offered less this time, so if you assume Eleven Sports offered that much, they are likely paying quite a bit more than 33mv for everything I'd think. UFC I doubt is absolute cheap as chips.

I think Clasico did more numbers than that, rest about right.

Agree with sentiment, I said it when this all was coming out that there has to be a long term plan here, as La Liga might be interesting to quite a few but it's hardly going to be a big subscription driver, it's gravy to go with other stuff. Atm they have gravy with nothing to go with it. I imagine UFC will drive a few subscriptions, but even that McGregor could be finished by end of the year which will hurt UFC numbers (they don't pick up rights until 2019). Atm I can't imagine there's a chance they're anywhere near even 100k UK subscriptions, I would honestly guess like 10k atm, tiny numbers.
Report tobermory August 28, 2018 11:07 PM BST
Yes, I forgot they had UFC. That is probably their shrewdest investment as there is a sizeable number of fanatics here that are mostly under 35 and so less likely to moan about streaming .


Though as you say it probably wasn't cheap to buy those rights. Also though virtually every top fight is on at like 5am and I guess a lot fans sky+ the thing now.

I agree that take up must be low.

n88 - I'm not so sure - look at the money Amazon are spending and does anybody seriously think somebody is going to pay for Prime just to watch sport? I'm a prime member and get ok value for money as i use a mix of the services just about enough to make it worthwhile. I'm prepared to be proved wrong but i think the whole business model of streaming bits and pieces of sport (esp if not 'live') is a loser as most are casual viewers. It has to give something that watching on Tv doesn't and i can't think what that can be.
We were on Sky, decided to get rid as the sport was as you say depleting and had enough when they put the prices up a few months back, Virgin recently cabled the area and got a v good deal for the vip (saved £70 from bt/sky) so rang Sky to cancel and they were beyond desperate to keep me and offered me the deal i was on (no Movies) for under £30 and would have offered me a very good deal for an upgrade. Point being that if any one thinks they are paying Sky too much then you prob are and think of a low number that are willing to pay and they will prob match it

Once their Premier League football deal kicks in they're bound to get people to subscribe just for the football.

I'm a big tennis fan and am aware of a lot of people through Twitter who have signed up for the US Open they currently have too, but of course this is a minuscule number in reality in the bigger picture as tennis is quite a small game in the bigger picture of subscribers. I also reckon a lot are just using the 30 day free trial is it they give you.

The real thing to me is football will also put more spotlight on the shortcomings of it and they are numerous atm. There has been a lot of backlash from tennis fans over their coverage, a lot of teething problems, the delay is a big problem, so much so that they have stopped people leaving review for "US Open on Amazon Prime" as the reviews were so bad (like 1.5 star average I think). This will become even more of a factor for football and the likes where spoiling goals will make people seethe.

There is all sorts of other aspects to it too. Eg. I've seen people complain of poor picture quality/buffering on the tennis, this isn't something I've experienced, in fact the picture quality is probably the only good thing I could really say about it to give it 2/5 stars, but it's likely linked to people's internet connections, not everyone will have a good internet connection for streaming services, especially in rural areas.

For all that the epl likes to laud itself and the outgoing chief exec scudamore you only have to look over to the states to see the way ahead for broadcast rights.
To watch any sunday nfl game you can pay direct.tv about 300 USD for a season ticket.
NBC show a live match every sunday night and espn, available with most broadband subscriptions show the monday night game.
This has been going on for the best part of this decade as i understand it.

Charlie Sale of the mail, i think it was he, wrote about this a year ago. A stand alone epl tv channel charging 200 USD per season for any game could earn the epl 20bn USD if it attracted 100million subsribers worldwide.
The epl under the scudamore model rakes in about half that.
And we sad deluded punters have to pay the best part of a grand per year for sky's product. Most of which we do not want.

The uk market has been sucked dry by sky and scudamore. The appetite for football is said to be on the decline as itv no longer show liv and utd champions league games any more. The younger fans are being neglected on terrestial tv. Only england matches have any value.
The yanks have it sorted with live nfl games on local stations and sunday/monday nights.
Ideally the epl ought to follow suit.
Its own channel plus a game on sunday afternoon live on itv at a nominal price to keep the fanbase going.

Scudamore of course has gone. He could see the way its going and didnt want to be around when the inevitable sh1t-fest with sky was going to have to come to an end.
Some people think he has been a visionary.
Lets not forget that under his watch the epl lost thierry henry, cristiano, suarez, bale and modric all to la liga.
Perhaps with a more combative chief exec the epl would be the nfl of soccer, as our cousins would have it.

i remember good old sunday afternoons watching division one football on the beeb, those were the days, i would only subscribe if it was free and theres little chance of that, who in their right mind is gonna pay £6 a month to watch streamed games on the net, i think sky and 11 are in talks to show on skys platform as well but no thanks pay enough for virgin/sky anyway without having to fork out another wad to watch my team

People who like to watch football?

£6?

You can't buy two pints for that. I watch a minimum of 20 games a month on it, that's 30p a match.

Does anyone know what they have paid for the UK rights they own ?I'm guessing £33M pa.So at £6 a month they will need near 500k subscriptions to make anything back.I'd guess a clasico would get about 500k viewers in UK. A regular Barca or Real game maybe 200k and too small to register for other games.But that would be Sky/Virgin subscribers. Many of those will simply not have bothered with this.I cannot see anything other than a big loss. Perhaps they make enough profit in other countries to cover it and just see this as a 'loss leader' type venture to get brand recognition in the UK.


Turns out they got 50k subscriptions so about 10% of what they needed to make a profit Cry

Premier Sports have now taken the Serie A matches.  Hopefully they will get La Liga within the next few weeks.  Eleven Sports are almost history!
