Hope it’s bt that go it alone they seem to be only one that give a dam about the game.  Would hope we get right good deal. Everyone seems to be saying £40 million a year is a deal that could be tabled. Can’t see that but would be a fantastic deal if so

Can't really see a bidding war breaking out, I'd prefer to see it going to one broadcaster rather than two.

BT don't give a f**k. They give that impression because it's in their own interests to do so, but let's not pretend that they care.

Alright, they pretend to give a f**k. Unlike Sky Sports, who don't even pretend that they care.

Well aye. But I don't think BT would be willing to stump up what we're getting just now on their own, or even come close. I'd be delighted if I'm wrong about it, but I don't see it.

Doesn't matter who gets it it'll end up Bigot Brothers TV soon enough.

What do you mean here? Surely any media outlet will care only as much as the broadcasts are commercially viable?

There seems to be this misconception on here that BT genuinely care about Scottish football.

I'd quite like Eleven to win them, as I hate indirectly funding the shite that is English football with my subscriptions to those services. I'd cancel Sky and BT immediately.

It's the marketing of our game that is letting us down when it comes to the TV deals. We should be selling ourselves as the impoverished, fetid sister-league of England to be roundly mocked at every opportunity. Schedule our games to compete with You've Been Framed on a Sunday afternoon and we could be on to something.

I'd be happy for Eleven Sports to get it, or at least be serious about bidding for it to help drive the price up. I'd also be happy for BT to get exclusivity, but definitely not Sky, and Facebook & Amazon can get tae feck aswell.

Whatever happens, I hope we see an end to the habit of only showing the Old Firm when they're away. Shite for fans of everyone else who actually want to go to these games at 3pm on a Saturday, and kinda pish that Old Firm fans never get their home games moved except when they play each other

Giving it to Eleven Sports would be a dreadful idea - they're a bunch of cowboys who have already shown a complete lack of regard for football associations in this country. Apart from that, it would be a hugely risky move given that they have absolutely no track record in broadcasting and therefore have a much higher chance of going down the pan . On top of that, they don't even have a TV channel, which would alienate a large number of the people who currently watch our game.

Sounds like it ticks all the right boxes then.

I would be shocked if the new deal moved away from showing all of the (don't call it the) Old Firm's away games.
BT's coverage is of a higher standard, but I'm a pessimist so I'll say they won't want to spend dolla on us.
BT having the Betfred Cup and Premiership with BT and the BBC sharing the Scottish Cup, would be wonderful.
I'm sure I recently read something saying that BT went overboard on the Champions League, so I'm a bit worried that we'll have another Setanta situation.

So the bids are in but no details of who has bidder what yet. Who would everyone like it to be that’s gets it?


Was told today that the sun will announce the deal had been accepted by clubs - SPFL will reject that
