And with the Dutch and Chinese rights to Eleven Sports..
.. Another two departing from Sky Sports.

Unless they are overreaching themselves, and they nosedive head first into crash and burn land - hoovering up all these rights with seemingly ease, is going to worry Sky and BT in three years time when the prem rights come around again.

How are the rights making it to air, is it a streaming platform ?

From their FAQs:
Quote:
Once we have launched our streaming platform in August, you will be able to watch ELEVEN SPORTS on:


Our website via ELEVENโ€™s streaming platform
Our iOS mobile & tablet apps (available from the Apple Store)
Our Android mobile & tablet apps (available from the Google Play Store)
We are working hard to ensure distribution everywhere and that means that we are also in discussions with all major platforms (including Sky, BT & Virgin) in the UK and Ireland to offer you the widest possible access to our content. To find out if ELEVEN is carried or to request ELEVEN SPORTS on your platform, let their customer service know via social media or via the appropriate feedback channels. They are always responsive to customer demand and take note of requests.


According to this article, they'll be launching two linear channels, with additional streams as required.

Platforms may 'take note of requests' , but there are a number of reasons why they might not act on them..

FFS. Its like Eurosport's scrap with Sky all over again..

No, Eleven Sports. YOU brought the rights. YOU want the maximum number of eyeballs watching your channels. YOU talk to the platform providers over carriage.

Don't get the viewers to invest their own time and money contacting Sky, BT and Virgin Media to ask to carry channels they care little about, showing leagues (unless you are from those countries) you care little about.

A similar dog is used on the Taiwanese version of ElevenSports that I have seen. It fact its actually bigger on Eleven Sport TW with text added to it down the side of the screen.

US PGA Golf rights Confirmation this morning ....




Though seemingly by โ€œfreeโ€, they mean โ€œif you sign up for a seven day trialโ€, rather than actually free to air.
