    An interesting side issue to consider- pretty sure it is quite common for holiday homes mainly used by brits and for expats in Spain etc to have UK Sky. Wonder how many of them (especially the expats) have Sky Sports subs? Even beyond that, licensing for non-sports content will be on a per-country basis. If Ms. Murphy loses the case, will there be legal fallout for these Sky customers?

    It seems to be that FAPL have sought to maximise revenues by fragmenting the EU market and practicing price discrimination. This is a clear violation of the principles of the Single European Market which, writing “tomorrow”, the Advocate General has just confirmed. If upheld by the judges, I would guess this will affect principally the type of rights contracts FAPL offer for sale in the future. Sky, with its presence in several EU countries, is probably as well placed as any broadcaster to benefit from that so long as it does not, in turn, abuse its market power.

    The biggest earners and most powerful people Ie sky and the fapl have had it too good too long charging mega money to feed our greedy overrated prima donnas who do everything in there power to avoid paying tax (image rights). pubs and clubs are struggling more than the conference league so it’s about time the big boys got real and allowed freedom of choice,is that to much to ask???
