£140K a week 12:50 - Jul 25 with 3988 viewsjojaca

Javier Hernandez for West Ham, the light bulb moment for me. I am due to renew my Sky subscription, but I am not funding Sky or BT anymore. It takes someone on minimum wage 9/10 years labour to earn would these overpaid humans kicking a leather football for a weeks wage. Surely the house of cards has to collapse soon.

Even when you know, you never know?

As long as Sky and BT sell the PL rights there will be no collapse,the real villains of the piece are the PL clubs who pay such crazy inflated wages.

It's hard to know where you break the circle. If I was working for a small company and knew they were bringing in over £120M a year due to me and my colleagues, then I'd expected to earn a big chunk of that money.

In my close friends and families and work colleagues, I don't know anyone with a Sky Sports(Football) subscription and a few of them have BT just because of the broadband. Something has to give if sports subscribers start declining.

On the last 9 months reporting figure Sky made £1.01 Billion down from £1.13 Billion the corresponding 9 months the year before this despite massive increases in the TV contract.

Sky will be around a long time yet and continue increasing the TV deals that's for sure.

The gulf between the Premiership and Championship is getting greater year by year thanks
to sky.

Sky are under pressure from TV deals as well with the likes of Amazon, Netflix and Youtube. The only thing I have watched on Sky the last few months is Game Of Thrones. I am using Youtube and Netflix 90% of the time.

I wonder whether the Premier League could cut out the middleman completely, set up their own brodcasting company and offer global audiences a pay-per-view package over the Internet.

The bubble will burst if illegal live streaming undermines the TV companies profits. The only reason TV money is so big is because TV companies are willing to bid such high amounts.

The TV companies are only willing to bid such high amounts because customers are willing to pay such high amounts for their subscriptions.

IMO the TV companies need to evolve their services to better cater for the modern football fan otherwise illegal streaming will continue and undermine their profit margins.

Selling the rites to stream games is the future IMO. Stopping people hacking into those streams is another matter, however.

You could go down the route and allow the clubs to sell the streams to their own games in the same way that they sell match tickets now.

Cut the TV companies out of the picture altogether.

If I had to make a prediction then id say that in 10 years id be able to watch any game live from by sofa using my VR goggles.

I could be a Swansea City season ticket holder, watch every game home and away and never have visited the ground.
The marketing opportunities in America and Asia would be immense!

You could have a 10,000 seater stadium and have 100,000 season ticket holders!

If that happens the big clubs will each demand their own deal and the likes of Man Untd , Liverpool etc will get a far bigger share of the revenue

While clubs like us will see our share decrease , sky is not ideal but it is probably the best option available at the moment

there will no doubt be a PL Network at some point along the same lines as the WWE Network. Who runs with it is the big question?

This inevitably would be the case. I honestly think VR is the future of entertainment, imagine having 6 different viewing angles similar to what BT sport did for VR. Great for people who haven't got the opportunity to see games at the stadiums. All they need to improve is the video latency/quality however in two years time that's gonna be a thing of the past.

I tried the VR on Playstation 4 and my eyes struggled with it. It was impressive, but at the same time I had an headache after half hour.

Which will just force the TV deals to increase in value at a faster rate.

The Premier league does not mind if the cash comes from Sky,Amazon or whoever and the more in the bidding war the better.

Last year I watched all the EPL games on broadband including recordable for free.
All games are kept for about a week.
Still watched swansea games live for the buzz.
Introdutory offer.
This year the price is 7.50 pounds per month.
Not sure how Sky get away with the high prices.

I picked up a 2nd hand PlayStation VR kit a few weeks ago, had the same issues but over time I seem to have got over them.

Having a play around the other day I ended up on YouTube VR and there's a demo video from an England v Holland friendly, it's only about 10 minutes long, but I sat there and immediately thought that this is how we'll be watching matches in years to come. There were a couple of problems with the video, but still very, very impressive. Not forgetting that the PlayStation kit is the lowest entry point to VR and that this is the first generation of VR kits for the home... Sat in my living room but at the same time I'm sat at Wembley looking up at the arch! Bizarre but brilliant...
