And so it begins - Football on Box Office.


Recommended Posts

I’d never pay to watch 2 teams play football on a TV when you can so ridiculously easily get a good stream for free.

 

I wouldn’t even pay to watch Wednesday (unless a huge game)

 

Foook em, it’s just not worth it

The fancied games. The entertaining games. The games that are picked for Sky Sports....have transferred over to Box Office.

 

So the "good games" have been taken away from the neutral 

 

No.  I don't think any of those games are particularly headline grabbing.  

 

It's impossible to judge if a game is going to be good or not before hand though.  Some of the best games this season have been one's you'd never have picked.  Some of the worst over the years have bene the games between the top teams.

Are you trying to convince us to enjoy watching Burnley, WBA, Palace, Southampton etc...

 

It's sickening what they're doing.

Signed up to a 12 month contract with sky, 2 weeks ago.

 

Just makes business sense for them, they're never going to pick Burnley vs Palace for £15 PPV

Just had a peek at the fixtures this weekend:


Newcastle United vs. Manchester United - SKY BOX OFFICE.

Leicester City vs. Aston Villa - SKY BOX OFFICE.

 

Following weekend;


Liverpool vs Sheffield United - SKY BOX OFFICE.

Arsenal vs. Leicester - SKY BOX OFFICE.

 

 

No doubt all entertaining games, taken away from the neutral. All these offers to get you to buy into Sky Sports, then they do this.

If there is a trend to put beter games on box office my sky subscription gets cancelled as soon as evidence of this. 

I am not sure if you can just watch Championship football without PL but will try and do this.

Coverage on Championship is substantial now they lost Spanish football but Champiosnship clubs did not get reward they deserved for this. Unfortunately the standard of presenters and and analysts has sjlipped to a new low in the current season.

The reason why Sky has been so successful is because millions of people have voted with their wallets for them.

 

If you don't like what Sky are doing, stop giving money to Sky.

No they haven't. Live on Sky today, Man City v Arsenal. Live on Sky next Saturday, Man Utd v Chelsea.

 

Every one of the games where 2 of the big 6 play each other will be live as normal on either Sky or BT. And if anybody moans when Sky games involve Brighton, Burnley, WBA etc. - they're contractually obliged to show a minimum number of live games for every club.

Do you not think greed will take over....when they see this PPV service doing well.

 

It won't flop because of the size of the fan base for these premier league clubs.

This, on top of the 'big picture' is all that is wrong with football.

 

Bury are the first in a long line of Clubs that will be cast aside as the PL and EFL ruin our national game. 

 

Welcome to the future.

Who knows what may happen in the future, as far as I'm aware this, like Ifollow being available to all fans, is a temporary measure whilst fans arent allowed to go to games.

 

But you've stated that all the biggest games are being "transferred" to Sky Box Office, which clearly isn't the case at all. They've just given fans the additional option to pay to watch their teams in what would have been non-televised games, just like the EFL clubs have.

Yeah I agree.  Presumably you'll be happy going back to a 1970's wage too?

If we can have 1970s prices, why not, I mean how can a pint of bitter  be anywhere near £3?  34p a pint

Are the normal games on sky my guess is yes and this is an addition to those games for those wishing to view them especially not being able to go into the ground 

 

I see no problem with this I currently pay £10 a game to watch a team bottom of the championship

 

the neutral like me in other games watches what’s on tv / sky like I have done for last 20 years

Stop watching Premier League games then. 
 

You support Sheffield Wednesday.  Why are you watching random other teams, financially supporting other clubs and paying into a league that would be happy to see us go bust. 
 

Stop it.
