sdav: I'm only assuming regular (non sports fans) subsidise the sports channels.


Yep, its like anything you buy in bulk, its cheaper. 
  So really, non-sports subscribers should be getting upset at sports fans for keeping their content artificially high :-)


No. If subscribers pay for Basic, sport is the standard price. If non subscriber wants sport you pay more. Put it down to Sport + non subscriber premium. Its pay as you go and not a monthly sub. Like most things if you buy one its more costly per unit than buying bulk. Basic and Sport is about $70 every month, or you just pay $56 for some months. Sky gets funds, you get a saving, win-win
  Are you saying Sky don't see the potential in Fan Pass being a subscription model (but then they offer a recurring payment)?. I was comparing a potential Fan Pass customer to an existing non-sport Sky subscriber regardless of how delivered. For what it's worth, I'm neither - but more likely to jump on Fan Pass than Sky Basic + Sport.

Why is the price different because one person doesn't have Sky at all? Is it because Basic across all subscribers subsidises the sport or because it is more expensive to deliver on demand content to a smaller cliental or a bit of both?


The average person watches 1 hour of Sky sport per week (only Sky Sport 1-4 details are given by Nielsen) or the average Sky household watches 2.7 hours of sport per week.
If you apportion the cost of HD across movies and sport channels on a watched proportion basis and the cost of the box across movies, sport and all-other Sky channels in a watched proportion basis then the total cost of "sport only" with no subsidy from Basic it works out about $38/month ($28+$7+$3 respectively).  The cost per viewing hour of sport on this measure is ~$3.20 per viewer.  

[Incidentally the cost per viewing hour of movies is ~$5 and the remaining channels (ie all othe Sky channels) is $0.62.]

Hope the tennis pop-up channels will be added given it's sky broadcasting their own content!

 

 

Also the 8 hour account timeout needs to be bumped to 10 hours.

 

Was watching the Aussie vs WI test te other day and the stream cut out cause the 8 hour account timeout kicked in.

 

Had to sign in again and get the chromecast streaming again.

Anyone managed to get Fan Pass working on an Amazon Fire TV? I tried sideloading the android version 5.1016 apk but the image was stretched and the menu buttons impossible to navigate using the remote.

Looks fine, just can't see any options anymore.

Killerkiwi2005: Heres a working kodi addon (based on the NHL gamecenter addon ), it basiclly just uses the ipad stream

Requires a valid fanpass account

I havn't used fanpass again but some one might find it useful should work on all platforms ie raspberry pi etc


Seems to work well.
Anyway to default the video stream quality to save a click?

Would also be cool to be able to change channel in a quicker fashion...

Thanks

@Finch, just received email about $14.99 Courtside Pass (16 days of access to SS1-4).  Code TENNISFAN, enter code before 11pm, 25th Jan

EDIT - Interestingly the base Courtside Pass "Must be purchased before 21/01/15" so I wouldn't leave this code too long :)
