BT Vision Moves in on Sky Sports Price Increase – EXCLUSIVE

As I’ve covered some football linked news as well as price increases I thought you might be interested in this bit of news that’s just come in.

Sky Sports customers are looking at a subscription increase from Sept 1st (tomorrow) of £3 per month – Sky Sports and Sky Movies customers being hit with a £2.50 increase.

The increased charges mean Sky customers will pay around £240m more for all TV services over the next year – that’s based on 9.78m Sky Subscribers in the UK and RoI

What could you buy with a £240m windfall?

Well, you could slam down the cash for Tottenham Hotspur (£241m) or Manchester City (£166m), according to valuations by Forbes.

How about three Christiano Ronaldo’s (£80m), four Kaka’s (£56m) or seven Robinho’s (£32m)?

If you wanted to be generous and remembered for a good deed you could always buy the entire population of Manchester (400,000) season tickets to watch their choice of Premier League team. Nice.

Alternatively, BT Vision customers can watch premier league games from about 75p a game based on the next three months fixtures on BT Vision’s Sky Sports 1, Sky Sports 2 and ESPN, paying £11.99 a month.
