We don't watch football - we are not interested, but we would watch Cricket if it was availble.

I don't know if others feel the same, but we are not interested in football and don't watch it. So we don't want the upgrade to BT Sports or ESPN, unless of course BT Sports will be showing Cricket. So if it is just increased football that is offered - forget it.

Totally agree with you! Penalised again because of the obscene money Sky have paid for Premiership TV rights(see my post on this).

Apart from blaming the wrong organisation for the latest price rise (it's BT not Sky) consider this. Do you honestly think that BT or Sky would offer such tremendous and ever increasing sums for football rights if the punters weren't out there to pay for it all, drive the business forward, and still leave a tidy profit?

Of course, they are and they outnumber by far those who wonder about it all.

This is the result of a free market in TV. Be careful what you wish for.

I do not work for VM. The advice I give is based on my best understanding of VM policy and practice. You rely on it at your own risk.
