It sounds like Sky have lost Monday Night Football.

I know Sky got the 4PM sunday matches. and they are show 92 games a season.



If Setanta got 2 packages, dose that mean Prem Plus didn't get any?

So, I'm currently giving Sky ?36/month......



How much more is this wonderful system the EU have forced upon us going to cost for a similar package?

imho we pay Sky enough via their sports package to watch all their broadcast football, whether on their sports channels or Setanta.

It's bad enough being locked into 12 months' contracts.

If I have to pay on top of a subscription to watch eg Arsenal vs Barcelona, I would want to cancel.

Don't think it's right that one broadcaster has all the rights to the most popular sport in the world.

The only channels that should be add-on pay channels are for the sad people who want to watch Man Utd TV etc all day
