Sky losing its grip?

Wow. This could be huge. BT are taking cricket very seriously. If they win all series then I can get rid of sky.

Sky still have all England home matches and all England away matches bar the 2017-2018 Ashes and the rest of Aus home matches.

Sky still hold live rights to all other international cricket including both World Cup's and Champions Trophy.

Never mind all the domestic stuff and the IPL etc.

What do BT have? CPL and Aus home matches. They have still got an incredibly long way to go and if they have paid 70 million a year for the Aus home matches they have overspent massively.

However, if BT can get some more cricket on it's channels then it will become a lot more interesting.

No they don't - I think they have West Indies, South Africa test and maybe ODI cricket and some series involving India, New Zealand. No one in the UK seems to show the Pakistan or Sri Lanka matches and those involving India are dependent on the prevailing mood at the BCCI.

BT are a telephone company. They have obviously been massively overcharging me on my phone bill. I thought as much. I shall cancel immediately.

I've just upgraded to BT Sport so this is a nice little bonus. Any more cricket would be good too. The next TV bidding process over here will be interesting.

"Upgrading" sounds quite good until one uses it to describe changing to Windows 10.

Kept it for about four hours before "downgrading".
