Premier League to introduce pay-per-view fixtures on Sky and BT Sport

All matches to be shown live until end of October
Five games per matchday will cost £14.95 each


ouch, especially as a while ago, they were making more matches free for anyone to watch. Considering it's a known fact that some pubs use illegal streams to show all matches for their team, and a lot of people at home do, do they really expect this to be popular at such a high price?

I guess they would normally argue, that like a bib boxing match ppv you could have some mates round and make a night of it, but I don't think you can currently argue that point?

Still no decision on what happens to season ticket holders.

You pay a lot more than that for Sky and you get maybe one or two games for your favourite team a month?

yeh, but if you wanted to watch the other match, you'd have to pay £15 on top.

I don't get Sky Sports, last season and before I used to go next door to watch Saints, but he watches every premiership, championship, lower league match he can. He's funny, he'll say, oh I got bored watching top teams in Premiership, I watched that league 2 match, much more exciting :)

to him it's v good value for money, I get what you're saying, someone liek me, who just wants to watch Saints, Sky and BT sports isn't worth getting, but £15 still seems bloody steep, I mean what's a film to "rent" £5? at least you can read a review of that so can get an indication if it will good or not in advance ;)

There's ppl there saying they pay £60pm, they get a lot more than 4 match pm, you get 4 on a Saturday don't you?

Paying more for a monthly sub isn't a like for like comparison?
£15 in these times is way beyond disgusting.
What is the split on this fee between the poor Premier League clubs and TV companies?

We will pay the price but we will not count the cost..

£15 for a match is too much.
If you want to watch your team legally you now have to lay out for Sky, BT and Amazon which even then doesn't guarantee you every match. 
They plan to add £15.00 per match to that now for Premier league games left out.
Is it any wonder people seek alternative arrangements. 

I've argued for ages for a digital season ticket.
Unlikely I know but slightly less unlikely in these plague ridden times than before.

I agree it's way too much, I was just saying it's no more expensive as every other legal way right now. :/

I would also like a digital season ticket, I only want to watch Arsenal, and sometimes I don't even want to watch Arsenal. 😂 £15 a game is still a lot cheaper than a season ticket, I know it's not the same though.

Premier League I believe.
Sky and BT are just the means of delivering it.
