  • I thought it might be useful to have a thread devoted to sport on TV, which can include discussion on upcoming and recent sports events and also the method of delivery via TV channels, streamers, etc.


    For starters, the BBC and ITV broadcasters have agreed on the sharing of the 2022 World Cup coverage.

    So, it seems that the first streamer to offer a substantial chunk of the Premier League matches will be Discovery Warner, who will ‘aggressively’ go after more sports rights worldwide.

Presumably, the sport element will be offered as an add-on fee to the scripted and documentary content part of the subscription.


    It sounds to me that Sky may have a real challenge at the next round of bidding for the majority of the Premier league rights.

    There was already this thread:



    Where we've spoken about all the sports rights gradually moving to the streamers, but this thread is more broad brushed, so happy to keep all sport stuff here now. :thumbup:


    But as said before in the other thread, Amazon, Apple et all, are 1/2 trillion dollar companies and now that they've shown their hands (they are serious about sports) how can Warner, or Sky or anyone else compete against them?
