La Liga TV Rights for 2019/20

Recommended Posts

I know ITV had some for the short term but with the issue where rights were lost…any rumours who will be showing the games next season?

Think it's still to be decided and contract is still out for tender.

who knows many BT get it but doubt it

Wouldn't mind if they did. 

I have BT and not Sky (only SkyGo) so that would be my choice. If it stayed on free-to-air, even 1 game a week on ITV, that'd do as well.

I pay for both sky and BT which is about £112 a month so I want to make the most when i'm paying so much.

I hope BeIN keeps it here in the States. We get all the matches, some second division matches, and I have it.

The US rights to La Liga aren't up for sale mate. There's still four years running on that one and you'll be alright as far as I know.

No English channel wants or gives a shit about it, it seems. 

That's why it ended up on some absolutely terrible channel that you can only watch via a pc last season.

It's to do with the price they're selling it at by the sounds of it. I really do feel sorry for all those thatvhave followed La Liga for so long in the UK.

The problem with the likes of sky also is that they are fighting so hard to keep the Premier League that they have given up on everything else.

It would be ideal if BT got the rights to be honest as they also have the Champions League and Europa league, which already makes them an attractable channel.

And BT really need to bring back the European Football Show. Can't believe they got rid of it. Thought it was really popular.

It was just a chance to watch some weird shit for free before it was easy to watch on a PC xD 

 

The other (sporting) programme I remember, on Channel 4 if I remember correctly, was TransWorldSport. Think it was on at like 7am in the morning.

Yep... TransWorldSport I also remember. They never used to have a proper schedule so you really didn't know what they were going to show that particular day. They would have goals from around Europe after showing odd fringe sports... But like I said, sometimes they wouldn't have football at all and you'd be left rather pissed. xD

Yep! It'd be some random ski-jumping highlights (I used to love watching that sport tbf) or some random hockey mishap.

Literally anything and everything sport-related could make the cut.

A bit off the track but I remember when Satellite tv hit these shores and my dad was one of the first in the family's group of friends to have this. There used to be a sports channel called ScreenSport and they were bloody brilliant? FTV with Argentinian, German, Spanish and Dutch football live (I especially loved the Argentinian stuff)... Then came EuroSport a couple of years later and ScreenSport died with the advent of football rights going up for auction. I also remember watching some really weird sports on Europsports like in Scandinavia with their love of trucks trying to get up vertical mountains and always failing but it was all about who'd managed to get up the furthest. O.oxD

It's only because I read a report in May that ESPN had tried to pay the penalty involved in bEIn Sports having their rights ripped off them before the contract ending and bEIn threatened court action which would've dragged on and end up expensive. From what I understand ESPN will eventually end up with the rights in the US.

Good. ESPN is cheaper, and does an excellent job with Serie A

You guys have Jorge Valdano as a pundit on bEIn in the US don't you?

He is the best football pundit ever.

Yes - and he is the best by far, but BeIn is hard to get here.

It must be on their Spanish language channel then. I don't know who the English guy is but Valdano has been praised for his punditry on bEIn.

Why is it hard to get? Isn't it on the US PPV network nationwide?

Well, its not carried by ATT Uverse and DirectTV which are two if the most popular cable providers. It used to not be on Xfinity, but I'm not sure anymore.

I get it from SlingTV which is a streaming service. It used to be like $40 a month, but now they have a service for just sports that is $10 a month.

The system is quite complexed in the US. There should be a nationwide platform accessible to all via one singular modum  of service and from there each individual selects their preference.

Yes, but it's not that way. So while there are maybe 10 cable providers, I am only allowed to select 1 or 2 in my neighborhood. Neither if those have BeIn.

Does the accessibility work via States or is it just a provincial situation?
