    Setanta lose premier league rights

    I will be cancelling my subscription with them shortly as with no prem games next season and not much boxing they are defo not worth 12.99 month, That is of course they dont now go bust as I guess most people will cancel.

    What do you think and will you be canceling.

    YES!!! about time too, hope sky get the monday night football back!

    Reckon Virgin will buy the rights

    I get Setanta free with Virgin, but i thing for sure is i it was no longer free i wouldnt pay for it now there is no football on there.

    ESPN were rumoured to be intrested, also sky are free to bid for one of the packages of 23 games

    I'm glad it will be mostly back to Sky, but you know what will happen, they will bring back Prem Plus on a pay-per-view basis, which sucks.

    I thought sky couldn't bid for setanta's rights, as they would be infringing the monopolys and mergers commisions policy of having too much of a lion share.

    they cant own all premier league rights which makes them free to bid for one of setantas packages of 23 games as 1 package will still be provided for another provider

    Didnt mind the offer when you purchased 50 games for £50 before the start of the season when sky had prem plus season ticket

    Be interesting to see what happens with the rights, SKY?, ESPN?

    Thought so:thumbsup:
    Am a costumer as well, just wondering about cancelling. But still have UFC on:oops:

    Is it just my box (cable) or has Setanta stopped broadcasting on all its channels?
    I can get every channel inc Sky apart from Setanta and the Racing channel :thinking:

    It must just be your box because setanta is still available on my box

    Wonder if one of the terrestrial broadcasters may pick up the rights..

    Don't care. I haz satellitez.! :w00t:

    Great news - This is all down to the European Competition Commission sticking their nose in where it doesn't belong. Hopefully the company goes down & we get our England Internationals & Friendlies back, along with FA Cup games.
