Doubtful then the Premier League will compete against Sky.
They don't have to. Just run current contracts down and move it all in-house.

Full subscription, individual team subscription and on-demand games. Three tier charging model to cover most consumer types and they are made. It's a no-brainer, the current model (competitive market with multiple subs) working for the public hence such a massive rise in piracy.

Netflix/Spotify model has tackled piracy in music and TV shows and made those markets viable again. Time to do it for football before the market collapses.

That's a very good point

It's looking like the PL will be forced into this, whether they like it or not

This all may seem simple here but contracts, broadcasting rights across leagues, countries and continents etc are never that easy. Netflix UK catalogue has 3000 titles the US 9000 why because of broadcasting rights across the world. Netflix has no HBO, Soon to lose all its Disney, Sky has both. This is a long long way from becoming a reality. If i was predicting I would expect even more breakup, more competing subs and higher prices vs the consumers desire of cheaper prices and consolidation.

I have both Spotify and Apple Music why? Cos they have different catalogues. £25 combined per month.

I have both Amazon and Netflix.

I thought about adding NFL and NBA sub on Apple TV that would set you back £250-300 combined thats 20-25 a month. I didn't bother. I just subbed BT Sport because its at a place where its worth the £10 as its available on Apple TV, Xbox etc

Nothing suggests to me any consolidation of the market just further competing services, and more break up.

Right at this moment the Sky model is working because its consistent, it delivers and has the largest amount of choice.
