SPL and SKY

Dont know if it should go in here or not but i heard a rumour that back in the days when Sky were covering the SPL games that we were given the option to move to an SPLTV deal or extend the current deal with Sky, 8 out of the 10 SPL teams chose to go for the SPLTV deal (everyone excluding the Old Firm). As expected the SPLTV (i think it was called that) deal fell flat on its face and we were forced to accept a much reduced deal of about £2m from Setanta - thus opening the door to an improved deal for the premiership teams from Sky

It was quite a while ago but has anyone got any proof or can they confirm this?

Just thought id post this as i heard that as we get £2m for winning the league - if a team avoids relegation in the EPL they get £30m which is the same as winning the CL - allegedly

Sky were offering £ in the region of £40million to have the rights to show SPL football and but the SPL knocked it back and Setanta came in and if am not mistaken Rangers and Celtic recieve £2million a year from Setanta which is pathetic. Setantas coverage aswell is pathetic Scott Brown couldnt analyse a game of Pro Evolution on the PS2 if he tried he is so bad and when it comes to Rangers games he hits out with most ridiculous things. A hope SKY get the SPL back and get real coverage of football but aslong as they get rid of Provan then they will be fine :D

Now Setanta have 40 premiership games from next season will mean more viewers and more revenue which could be good for us in the years coming up.

As I said above, we had BBC between Sky and Setanta. Setanta weren't operating in UK (not sure about N. Ireland) when the SPL pulled out of the deal for Sky. To begin with I think it was around £6million a season for the entire league from the BBC, then Setanta came in and offered slightly more.
