BSkyB lose exclusivity, but how does that benefit us???


can't spell :D
My Satellite Setup
Sky+ Pace v3, and before that analouge 80cm dish with Prima by Pace box pointed at 19.2e (not very imaginative then!)
My Location
Colchester, Essex

Lets think about it though, hows that gonna benefit us, Sky will surely get 5 packages, and though the BBC report suggests either BBC or ITV will get the other, whos to say Setanta Sports wont get it???

And calling 20-odd games a 'meaningful amount' is joke, I very much doubt Sky will let (and yes, I have no doubt it'll be up to Sky) the other broadcaster have any of the BIG games between Man U, Chelsea, Arsenal, and Liverpool. The most it'll get is a derby.

And most importantly, this WILL NOT FORCE SKY TO LOWER THEIR PRICES, which I thought was the main aim of the EU involvement all along.
