What’s he gonna do, pull Wales out of the six nations if it isn’t on S4C? He can fight for it but there’s not much else he can do. Early signs are that it’s going to Amazon. £11.98 to watch the six nations? Bargain. 

Not compared to £0.00 though - maybe have a word with your accountant!
Don't you pay your TV licence?

Yes - for which I get rather a lot more than just a few games of rugby. Perhaps you didn't spot that?

My point was that if it was going behind a pay wall then Amazon is the cheapest

Fair enough.

You are confident, then, that if it were to happen, the pricing would stay the same? I wish I had inside knowledge of Jeff Bezos's mind, too... how did he get to be the world's richest man, I wonder?

You think it’s gonna double because they’re showing a few rugby games? Even if it did double it’s still a cheaper option than sky or BT.

He's going to be popular with the other nations' rugby chiefs if the sole reason a multi million pound TV deal is scuppered is because he wants the games on S4C.

Sky have pulled out of the race to host the Pro16. They were favourites to win the rights but it looks like it will continue to be hosted by Premier Sports, with more games being on BBC & S4C.

I’m devastated. Premier sports are handed down the worse sports broadcasters I’ve ever seen. 

I’m off to phone sky to offer to chip in....
