Right now money money money is the no.1 priority.

The BBC have their own financial problems with it's revenue falling whilst raising salaries.

You would have thought that C4 or 5 would appreciate that sort of audience and be able to sell an advertising package...
I'd love to agree with you, but then we'd both be wrong....

The free-to-air boys would snap it up if given a chance. The issue is either BT blocking it OR PRL lack of foresight/gumption.

I assume the latter. And if Darren Childs (PRL CEO) has a history in TV - no surprise as he's made a total ball5-up of anything rugby related ;) - then this was his chance to shine/impress/be innovative.

PRL/DC truly are a shambles. :roll:

Anyone got any idea about TV viewing option next season? IE will BT have all matches? I just need to decide whether it is worth subscribing still.

BT sport’s contract goes to the end of the season.....whenever that may be.

I’ve bought a Now TV stick and can dip in and out of BTSport on a month by month basis.
I'd love to agree with you, but then we'd both be wrong....

I think they are doing a monthly rolling contract now so shouldn't be any need to commit.

BT Sport is a tenner a month if you have your broadband and tv package with them. You also get very cheap mobile plans.
