Sky sports to lose the Scottish cup.tv rights

Recommended Posts

SKY SPORTS are set to pull the plug on their Scottish Cup coverage.

Scottish football’s current TV deal sees Sky and BT Sport pay around £20million every season.

But the SPFL are hopeful that could double in the next deal as a result of English interest in Steven Gerrard’s appointment as Rangers boss.

The current agreement is due to run out in the summer of 2020.

 

And SunSport understands talks about a new deal will not include Sky covering Cup games.

At present, Sky and BT split coverage of league matches.

Until last season the Cup was shared between BBC Scotland and Sky, with both channels televising the final

 

Wonder if they will try go.down the Amazon or.google route with it. Either that or as I've thought for a while BT will cover all Scottish football

Don't agree, before an old firm you get half an hour build up before games. With BT they go so much more into it. Plus BT sports is £3.50 A month, sky is like ten times that amount

Wouldn't actually mind BT, yes half the pundits are idiots but they actually put effort into analysing the game up here and put on extra shows about it, on Sky you get about 15 minutes of build up and thats your whack.

If BT get all of Scottish Football id cancel Sky, I’m not interested in the Premier League, only have it to watch Rangers, hope this happens, saves me a subscription and Sky stops taking Scottish football for granted.

Bt's commentary team and pundits are dreadful, Walker's a tarrier wank but still 10x better than BT. McCoist, Butcher etc. all scared to disagree with Sutton, it's awful

By 2020 it will be back to the normal, Gerrard will be gone, and it will still be a two horse race.

The SPFL will courageously agree a deal through smart and very thorough investigation for the rights to be passed to BT for £10 Million.

I’ve been getting it at that price for a couple of years due to having bt internet. Got notification last week it’s going up to 6 quid a month. Still a decent deal.

It would save me a fortune, only have SKY because of the Scottish games - would gladly bin them in favour of BT.
