Now that seems to be a conflict of interests.

Is it? Sky Media already sell ads for a variety of channels which compete with Sky. I no idea how the commercial side works, but the press release mentions a competitive tender process - they'll presumably have promised to deliver a certain amount of revenue, and will have KPIs to ensure that they do.
They're perhaps also hoping that it'll make life easier for advertisers, who can now get more sports viewers through one agency.

In what way? They already have an existing commercial relationship so this is a natural extension of it and Sky Media will be working on behalf of BT as they already do for Viacom and Discovery - Sky Media will be working for the client and repping the client’s interests so unsure what conflict there is?

BT are closing a bit of a loop hole from the end of July. For a couple of years now, users who have a basic subscription (in my case as a Β£5 per month add on with EE) will now have to upgrade their subscription to use the BT Sport App on Windows. The Windows App allows you to view in full screen and to connect to your TV without issue. A shame as it was a cheap and easy way to watch BT Sport.

The four remaining R16 Second Legs of the UEFA CL will be played as originally drawn, and not moved to Portugal as the remainder of the tournament is to be.





The remaining UEFA EL R16 matches that have reached the second leg status will similarly be played as originally drawn. The two fixtures in the R16 which have not yet started will be played as single leg matches in Germany, as will the remainder of the competition.

The draws for the final stages of both competitions will be held tomorrow.

A strange unfamiliar 'studio' being used for Krasnodar - Chelsea tonight, presumably an aside off the main Here East floor. Goals Show on the floor as usual. Man Utd match to come. I thought Here East was capable of handling three broadcasts simultaneously from the 'Main Studio Area'.

Curious scheduling to put a game with no UK interest on BTS1 and Chelsea on BTS3
Write that down in your copybook now.
