I find it disgusting. I hope it flops big time.

What’s shocking to me is their failure to realise that people don’t illegally stream because we want to be criminals, but because there is no choice, and that if they offered something of value for our money we’d take it in a heartbeat. Anyone can continue watching shit on putlocker and 123movies etc., sure, it’s free, but why when Netflix and Amazon Prime offer a good selection for a decent price, without the lagging and pop ups for ‘horny singles in your area’ every 10 minutes.

IPTV for me. When I lived in Canada I subscribed to DAZN and could watch every premier league and champions league game for around £13 per month, it also includes PPV boxing.

I cancelled my Sky subscription as it is daylight robbery frankly.

Surely this is the tipping point and they have to start bringing prices back down? Pretty much everyone I know has IPTV now and it seems like the majority in this thread do too.

I'm interested in the IPTV route but I don't know where to start with there being so many different ones out there. I don't know what is a quality service and what's not.

If someone were to PM me their advice on some IPTV services I would be most ungrateful. Angry and confused even.

This is so true. Everyone I know pirated music at one point, never paid for it. We've all got Apple Music or Spotify now. It's value for money and easier. The PL should catch up with the music industry.

This. The same example came to mind. £20 per month for all footy including foreign leagues and everyone will pay.

To be honest I probably would have if we were good. Had a good transfer window. Etc. But I’m not paying £15 to suck the life out of my Saturday night.

I think if we could go to the match we would as it’s still the start of the season. In previous seasons, if it was late November/ December we’d be giving our tickets away.

Funnily enough, just listening to Radcliffe and Maconie as I read this and they had an item about many musicians being ripped off or paid a pittance for steaming of their music. An enquiry is in the offing. It's always about the money, we live in a rip off world.

Oh my lordy lord. Both Manchester teams on Pay per view tomorrow. Don't fans pay enough? I have watched matches through Amazon, Sky and BT this season and have all bu if I want to watch those two matches tomorrow I pay again twice!

This does not impress me at all. No way!
I pay for everything like a mug. But I’m not renewing next season because of this. I’m moving everything to IPTV.

Spotify kills artists. Kills them. Supporting Spotify is, whatever the evils of the record industry, making it impossible for your favourite artists to enjoy the fruits of their labour.

I paid for this dodgy sky package that has all the foreign channels, so should probably be able to find it

I assume the US channels are still showing it?

This is the perfect chance to hit the glazers where they hate it most. Money. I implore anyone who is being forced to pay for it to not do that.

It's terrible for the artists, fully aware. But that's not really my point, I'm purely looking at it from a consumer perspective.

No way, main reason being some of it goes to those parasitic wankers who have destroyed this club. Dodgy rivers all the way for me

I wont be praying for the Newcastle game. It's not that bad yet.

Edit: Oh, paying. Not doing that either.

Luckily for me I live in the US. I get to see every premier league game through either the peacock app or over the air channels. It comes out to 5 bucks a month.

Dig up stupid!
I've no idea of the costs involved but it looks like they've massively mis-judged the price here.

Were this a fiver I've no doubt at all that they'd easily triple their sales, just reading this thread pretty much confirms that

I thought the new price gouge was only for the normally non-televised games, not the prime time (im assuming as its an 8pm kickoff) games?

Repeat - say it again - hit them where it hurts - imagine the PigJowl over here cozying up to Pool owners and trying to take over the leagues

I am not buying out of principle. It is just the usual theme of the rich asking the common man and woman to pay. We are meant to be in this covid situation all together. Yes the club are losing money due to no fans, but why make people pay when the players and directors are not taking a pay cut? Jesus if i was on 100k per week and my business was suffering, and other workers who were on 10 pounds per hour were being laid off i would bloody reduce my salary.
If players etc were reducing salaries and clubs were looking after the normal workers then i would happily pay for all the games.

I’m surprised they haven’t followed suit it’s such an easy way to combat piracy

Could you explain more about this. Don’t artists still get a huge chunk of the money from streaming apps such as Spotify and Apple music?
