    Yes the obscene sums will eventually result in deep shyte when people unsubscribe in larger numbers due to high subscription increases.

    Already happening on a large scale mate and I would be surprised if the EPL deal gets renewed at 90% of the current price.

    We as consumers are certainly paying MORE for much less sport and people are beginning to wake up.

    Would love this to be boycotted by the masses. Will never happen though. It’s a joke. It was still 16 about 3/4 years ago. It’ll be 30 in a couple more years. Robbing *******s!

    They were included in your sky package early 90s, when they introduced it after that that's when I got rid of sky, still haven't missed a PPV yet though.

    True, but even if you were to take that into account, PPV is still far more expensive.

    What defines an illegal stream though, if something is being shown in the public domain aren't we all allowed a choice whether we watch it or not, or are we supposed to flick through channels and if by some reason it comes on do we tell ourselves to turn it over because we are not allowed to watch it!!!

    Every time I see something I want , which costs more than I want to pay, I conclude it’s not worth it so I don’t pay it.

    The end.

    I've not been in the uk for a while but sky and sky sports in particular were ludicrously overpriced last time I was there. When you think most people are paying god knows what a month to basically only watch their team play 5 games.

    Last time I lived at home I just had the basic package and was a PPV Mugth from time to time.

    In Australia where I am now you don't even need sky as anyone can be a PPV Mugth through sky arena without even having sky.

    Didn’t support anyone - now hopes he gets destroyed. Entire reason? Five quid.

    Me. Genuinely think he’s cashing his out and they ain’t convinced he’s gonna win. They went to Saudi for the money, no need for the price increase.

    It wasn't long ago that Eddie Hearn was talking extremely confidently of continuing to build the Anthony Joshua brand and of AJ dominating the sport for the next 10 years ...... now it seems he and SKY are not at all confident of that scenario playing out even as far as 2020.
    Which is understandable. And fair enough.
    But the pure cynical desperate GREED of the price hike on top of the Saudi money ...... it's the ultimate cash-out precaution.
    Like as if they all haven't made enough money already.
