    ludicrous that they aren't showing any of the english teams. cold.



    Why would they? BT are only contracted to show one game from each round for free. If you want the full line-up you need to pay for it!

    Agree, valid complaint.

    Still worth a watch though if bored.
    The aim of BT is to keep viewing figures low for this channel.

    The blockade on UK teams is part of the razzamataz.
    All matches are free to watch.

    Just stream them

    Because this is to attract people to get bt. A showcase is to showcase the best they have, not just some random European games that get low ratings

    i've got all the sports channels. so this doesn't affect me.

    but that doesn't change the fact that it's moronic not to show a single one of the home nation teams play. especially when you consider HALF of the matches to be played this round have english teams in them. though i understand not wanting to give away the clashes between big teams (chelsea/barca & spurs/juve) to not even show something like man city vs basel is daft.

    let's face it they're not exactly going to draw people in by offering a match most of england couldn't give a smurf about. yeah not every fan supports city or utd but most brits would be more invested in hoping they win or lose.

    as someone else pointed out it's not hard to illegally stream matches. chelsea/barca is on the same time as bayern play, the number of people illegally streaming the chelsea match in the uk will far out weigh the number watching the free bayern match legitimately. you aren't going to bring in new customers if they don't want your free sample.

    And I'm fairly sure they got shot of their one free match for each of the British teams in the two competitions obligation in the earlier stages, so any British teams you see on their Showcase channel will now either be a bonus or because they can't avoid not showing the British team due to the one game from each round requirement.
    The ironic thing is the free streams will be of better picture quality than that of the bt showcase channel. It's abysmal.

    BT use the Showcase to remind you they have the Champions League and Europa League rights and meet their commitments on free to air as per the contract.

    Maybe in the early days they wanted to showcase the best they have, but at this point giving away a decent UK team game free to air when they don't have to would be unlikely to attract new paying customers (hence why we get the likes of Ludogorets v AC Milan - I confess that I didn't even know the former existed until I read this deal thread, so I'm not expecting a classic!).

    i like watching football when i'm emotionally invested. there's NOTHING riding on that match for me, & it's more than likely to be a one sided result in bayern's favour so it's even less interesting. honestly If i didn't have access to all the channels, I'd much rather go through the hassle of finding a stream of chelsea/barca at low quality than easily watch that bayern match in stable hd.

    If Besiktas kept Cenk Tosun the Champions League match with Bayern could have had a slim chance of a shock win for Besiktas, unfortunately he left for a big money benchwarming contract at Everton, so the match will likely be a goalfest in favour of Bayern. It's unsurprising that BT Sport would offer the likes of Chelsea vs Barcelona, Juventus vs Tottenham or Real Madrid vs PSG for free on the Showcase. Also mentioned above about the 'British obligatory showings', afaik BT Sport have not yet shown a Tottenham Champions League match for free on the Showcase.

    well said Boba. In my opinion BT advertises itself as the the BBC of internet providers. The bastion of the nation and then offers hand outs to the so called self marginalised (us) that would not be worth the argument to get the channel switched over from Emmerdale Farm.

    Nope because BT only have to make the european games available free to air they did freeview to stop sky customers viewing it as they are rivals. It will be gone end of the season, the only free euro games next season will be 12 Europa games on German 19.2e via satellite and even German champs league has gone too. Oh yes and the 2 finals on YouTube. Satellite is dying.... Everyone pirate streams nowadays anyway don't they ?!?
