    It would be a shame if this new service had to be abandoned as it would be available on a number of different services, ensuring that people were not tied to one provider in order to access the service.

  • Problem is streamers like tubi wanted to do sports before and were blocked from doing so, so they're not happy and are challenging this move.

  • The thing is, this will benefit the customer. If the cost is shared between the companies, the price to the consumer should come down. And as I said, they will not be forced to access their favourite sports via just one streamer.

    I agree though that this is likely to be voted down, which is a shame.
