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 :)

id prolly hold till they release further details. they could just resell their channel to sky?
tdgeek: I find this a little ironic. If Sky had won the bid, there would be the usual anti Sky, monopoly comments. True??
I'd say the winning bidder will stream it for a fee? Maybe pop it to Quickflix as PPV? This is the interesting part as clearly the bidder will sell it in NZ, how is of interest.
langers1972: Hope they unbundle ESPN now as that was swallowed up by SkySports when they got Champions league

think we get the same ESPN feed as Australia dont know how they would be able to do that. its just under 2 months till new season starts.
It used to be a separate channel that didn't require subscription to SkySports but that soon changed when ESPN got the CL, this is karma
