Sky announced on their facebook page that they have been outbid for the EPL broadcast right by a private equity company, but have no other details at the moment.

They have speculated that it will be packaged as an online-only offering.

Changes the sky value proposistion a lot for me.
Interesting to see what happens - all I can hope is that Sommet have picked it up :)

I see on their FAQs they are saying that if game is ondemand it is only until next round starts. There goes trying to see a game later if you have been on holiday or just haven't the time that week.

@Starblazer

We should most definitely be comparing to Sky HD though as that was the former maximum quality that was available for not much more than what you pay for a month with PLP.

Anyway for what it's worth I haven't signed up and refuse to until they sort out the judder in the stream, release more applications or ways to watch (I refuse to watch on a browser, or a phone/tablet - why should I have to change my viewing habits to meet a newer inferior method?) and make the bitrate higher.

PLP have done nothing wrong and have delivered what they said they would (bar the apps and the stutter) so no one could complain about false advertising.

Both Sky and Coliseum have been crap in my opinion; Sky simply didn't bid enough and perhaps undervalued the EPL market and Coliseum released an inferior product without its major benefits (apps) with a shoddy stream.

Anyway I look forward to the improvements Coliseum can bring (assuming that NeuLion are interested) including more ways to connect and watch the stream along with greater bitrates.
