Seen in the paper today Sky plan to put fifteen matches on paid for view for £14.95 each, there was a vote on this and Leicester City was the only club to vote against, are fans being taken for cash cows?

Always have been and always will be by the likes of Sky and Bt unfortunately.

Going forward, am I being a bit cynical thinking games that will be on the standard sky channels will be the Burnley, Brighton, Palace etc type games, whereas the real interesting fixtures like local Derbies and the top teams vs each other will be on PPV.  Surely they’ll want Liverpool and Manchester Utd fans paying the extra given there’s probs over a million of them out there. 

I was thinking the exact same earlier, take the next game week for example would the games be swapped if given a chance 

 

Saturday 17 October

Everton v Liverpool - BT Sport (12:30 BST)

Chelsea v Southampton - PPV on BT Sport Box Office (15:00 BST)

Manchester City v Arsenal - Sky Sports (17:30 BST)

Newcastle v Manchester United - PPV on Sky Sports Box Office (20:00 BST)

Discussions between the Premier League Fans Groups are currently underway to decide the next steps, an initial statement was issued by the Football Supporters Association and a couple of individual Trusts have already published their reaction, we are currently working on a statement


Reactive instead of proactive yet again I see, some things never change.

Genuinely curious as to what steps you'd have had them take prior to this to be proactive?


Honestly?

 

You’ve got a vote about putting football games behind a pay wall, you are the trust of a well established club, and you don’t think to air your opinion before it instead of complain about it after?

Didn't realise they actually had a vote on all this, maybe they were unable to air an opinion before hand? I'm unsure, just playing devil's advocate there.

 

But for sure with this being released over a day ago, you'd have expected a response by now, even some pre-prepared.

 

Only reason I ask was having seen people/posters in the past complain about issues, without actually having an improvement in mind.

They don’t have a vote, they, and the rest of the fans organisations with any sort a clout as all, should of released a statement before the vote to try have some influence over it. Instead we will get the usual after time complaining that well more than likely serve no purpose at all. Like most of their actions.

Yes but fans continue to pay into these systems so they will continue to do it. If people stopped moaning and actually acted then maybe we'd see a change.

I honestly can’t see there being a u-turn on this. 
 

I don’t think much of the Premier League hierarchy but even they must have known what the response would be to this. 
 

I know we were the one to take a stand but the more they continue to shoot themselves in the foot the more I’m losing interest in the game at this level. 
 

It’s like we always knew they didn’t care about the fans now they’re just admitting it. Continue as it is, with the empty grounds and soulless fake noise, just as long as they get the £15 each week. 
 

I won’t be paying it, I won’t be going to the effort of finding a dodgy stream, I’ve got tickets to Coalville’s next two home games and I’m going to stick with that.

Don’t think you are far wrong. I’ve read today that EPL are charging £10 a game. 


They aren’t getting huge numbers but it doesn’t bother them

If you've 'paid' per view then that is money already gone.

 

With regard to the new 'pay' per view initiative, my advice FWIW is don't pay it. :ph34r:

Bit of a dangerous game they’re playing as it could end up everyone cancelling sky sports and picking the half dozen big games per season

Can someone clarify this for me.

 

PPV games. Do you need to be subscribing to Sky Sports PLUS you have to pay £15

 

Or do you just have to have Sky/Virgin and then pay £15 for any particular game on PPV?

 

I usually use NOW TV to watch City's games recently... would these games not be available on them?

Don't need existing subscription. Think of the ads /promo you see for PPV boxing. Will work like that. 

 

I don't know if the 'box office' channels are on Now TV though so not sure if it's on there!

I very much doubt they've picked our next two games to get back at the club via the fans.

I don’t think it’s really about whether they’ve done it on purpose or not, more that those two facts correlated to piss me off 😂

I'd imagine the games on the regular sky sports channel you'll watch as part of your now TV pass or sky subscription but to get the 'box office' sky games you'll need to pay the £15 on top of that.

Maybe.... however... This is the first steps towards a Netflix style subscription. It'll probably earn the PL more pennies in the long run too

Reading an article today which suggested the opposite. Sky and BT have agreed to facilitate the ppv but want to keep the prime games on their subscription channels. They're the matches they sell to a world audience. Or they don't believe they'll be a great uptake in ppv either...

Every match is sold world wide, this won't change anything abroad. 

 

I can see why Sky would want to keep the top matches though, it just depends what their cut of the ppv is.
