The cost in the UK is beyond the pale. When I hear people paying 100 quid a month for Sky packages, I despair!


We take our live sport on FTA laws for granted when you compare what we get to other major nations.

How do you find Optus? I'm currently with Telstra but way overdue for a new phone and Optus Sport sounds like a nice little incentive. I'm currently using a friends log in.


Optus coverage is good in urban areas, not so hot when you are out in rural areas. If you are mainly a city person, then I'd go with Optus. The free Optus Sport package is a great incentive ;)

I think it’s important that everybody avoids paying for this service as SKY and BT will make every decent fixture a PPV there should be loads of streams available as well.

I have made up my mind not to cough up for PPV. It would take some extraordinary circumstance for me to pay and then only if Leeds were playing.

There’s a poll on WACCOE & surprisingly 18% will be paying the £14:95. 409 voted.

Yeah, sadly it's one of those where a boycott is clearly in the best interests of the fans, but some people are just too engrossed in the ease of watching their team to even think, or care, about the potential implications, so they'll pay it anyway.

All I keep thinking is that I can remember watching championship boxing bouts on Sky Sports, all part of the subscription fee, when I was a youngster in the mid 90s. When PPV started to creep in, it was only for the big, big matches. Yet here we are, not even 30 years on, and there's barely a boxing match of note that's not on PPV these days. It might be hyperbole on my part, but that's the risk we run if we show Sky etc that there's an appetite for such a model.

That’s actually about right.

I saw a big poll on Twitter, where all football fans were voting and the total who would pay was around 12%. If you factor in our bigger fan base than most other clubs, you’d expect it to be slightly higher than the 12%, which it obviously is.

That is exactly my thoughts on this, you are bang on the button with the comparison with boxing.
