There goes my Sky Sports sub....
Yeah, I know quite a few people who have binned their Sky Sports package.
Poor old Adam Smith.
No more rubbing shoulders with his "boxing friends", no more slobbering at ringside over "Kayteeee".
I won't miss this bias moron while watching boxing, I can only apologise to the darts fans in the UK, because Adam Smith is all yours now.
If he brings the darts over too at some point Sky are in big trouble
I guess the price of the Dazn brick just gone up, or will be going up.
No AJ or Whyte included in the deal interestingly. I'm guessing AJs promotional company will go to the highest bidder for his fights.
Good, hopefully premium sports channels dissappear and get replaced by streaming services. 30 quid a month to watch drone racing or netball? No thanks.
Unless you're into golf or cricket (I'm not), football is all they have left.
Still 1.99 for UK subscribers and will remain so until at least end August I'd guess. Worth jumping in - less than the price of a coffee.
Also, Matchroom completely responsible for production, included commentary and analysis teams, and they will also produce pre and post fight content.
Poor old Adam Smith.. Johnny Nelson, Matt Macklin, Anna Woolhouse.
Bellew is s far up Eddies browneye Hearn will get him some wrk on DAZN.
He might still get the chance to sniff Dillians jockstrap since Whyte is not part of the deal.
They're talking about a world-class Hall of Famer broadcast team. I mean...Roy is free isn't he? If they don't get Roy there they've failed. Barry Jones is good too, Andy Lee as well (though he could be tied to BT). Paulie would be nice.
Likely, but unfortunate scenario: ATG HOF Johnny Nelson
Also..no premier League rights = automatic failure. Forget a few hundred million, DAZN will need 10bn or so to make this platform work in the long-term.
If they aren't true to their word and instead give you matchroom shills, you will get Bellew, Froch and Darren Barker.
If they are true to their word, you might get someone like Paulie, Barry Jones and Richie Woodhall if available.
I binned Sky completely. I only subscribe to BT Sports (£5 month) and DAZN (£1.99 month) now
I got the Sky package just to watch the F1 only to realise I could find HD streams for free online. So i cancelled it ASAP
I wonder if Sky are now ruing their decision to give Matchroom exclusive control over their boxing events? I said at the time a monopoly doesn't really suit am established broadcast company.
