I'm just not seeing that. Not for Premier Sports on Virgin.
Says Freesport will be available through HD on Virgin upgrading over the Summer, but agree it doesn't say that about Premier Stern Smile

It's quite a bold statement that, if not backed up, really questions the credibility of the proposals:

"For the first-time ever it also allows for every game in the Guinness PRO14 to be broadcast live and in High Definition"

Broadcasting every game live and in HD means they will have to sort out the Virgin element. I know they've had a HD presence on Sky for 5 years or so I have no idea why they've never introduced it on Virgin, but if they're having an all out push on the Pro14 they'll have to introduce a new channel (and not just Freesports) for the UK.

Technically the statement is right though. Every game will be in HD either on skytv or through their app.

They just forgot to mention that you can't get it in HD if your a cable tv customer.

I won't be subscribing.

"Every game available on HD! But not if you're a Virgin customer, you second class peasant"

Sky Sports costs me £15 a month, if I get to see all of our games in HD, I'll cancel that an go Premier Sports for a tenner. But if the quality is akin to watching the 1984 Sarajevo winter Olympics on a black and white portable TV in an underground bunker (i.e. SD) I'm not interested.

From £11m to £30m in 3 years is superb in fairness. It’s still a way off the deals of the French and English but still, it’s over £2m per club now. Makes a huge difference.

Just on that, is it definitely £30million a season and is it split equally (as I read about separate Irelandand SA deals)

Great to have more money coming into the league. But will have quite a variation on kick off times as they state will be able to watch all games live


Q: Which games will be on which channels?
A: All the games in the United Kingdom will be shown live in HD with Premier Sports screening six games per round and FreeSports broadcasting a ‘Showcase’ fixture. The exact scheduling will be confirmed in due course, but it will enable viewers to watch every game live

I've never had Sky, partly because they pull all sort of stunts like splitting the 'good stuff' across several channels and make you pay for each one - which is ridiculously expensive - but mainly because Murdoch is a sort of Bond villain, interfering in politics and manipulating governments to ensure his companies can increase their profits. (I've always assumed that the Elliot Carver character portrayed by Jonathan Pryce in scenery-chewing mode in 'Tomorrow never dies' was meant as a parody of Murdoch!)

Now, if Premier is offering all pro-14 games for £100 a season, that's something I might well sign up for - does anyone know how it will be 'delivered', though? Set-top box? Streaming? I'll decide, once the technical details become clearer.
I share no-one's ideas. I have my own.

Yes but you'd need either a Sky or Virgin box, not available on BT.
Can live stream through their website and it says you can use devices like Chromecast to stream the channel to your TV.

It is £30m a season, i have no idea how it splits though. 

I remember something relating to the S.African TV deal where they kept maybe half the money and the other £3.5m went to the other 12 teams. I'm not sure what happens now with this PremierSport deal if the S.African teams now get some of the split themselves or not.

Via your set top box plus via app or online. Watch both the same time I believe.
