Mein Gott !!! Der Kiwis are vaking up to challenge der Sky Fuehrer's dictatorship as zee Englanders haf already.!!!!

Consumers have even more choice in the UK now that it's legal for them to buy satellite (or internet) access to EPL games from any EU country.

A case in Britain last year resulted in a European Union ruling  established the right of all EU citizens to buy satellite packages from any EU country.

A pub landlady in Portsmouth was prosecuted by the Premier League for buying a Greek satellite package to screen EPL games in her pub and appealed to the European Union who ruled last year in her favour.

Sky TV's monopoly in Britain is now KAPUT !!!!

"The UK's so called "Premier League" football cartel loses a court case where they wanted to enforce their cartel restricting people to view football games ONLY through the Sky TV packages. This is ILLEGAL as it restricts free trade in the European Union. Even the Premier Leagues pathetic statement in this report refuses to acknowledge their cartel is OVER! Big media sore losers while the public for once win."

BeIN Sports have snatched away the UEFA Champions League rights for Oceania from ESPN.

BeIN Sports is carried by Foxtel in Australia.

I suggest that fans contact Sky TV and suggest that they add BeIN Sports to their roster.

BeIN Sports broadcasts heaps of football. 

BeIN Sports Australia website for info on what they show: http://www.beinsports.com.au/

Contact Sky here:

Sky Sport Facebook - post a message:

Sky TV Facebook

https://www.facebook.com/SKYnewzealand

This is what I sent to them and posted on their Facebook:

"With the UK & European soccer seasons starting, what I want to know is, now that you have lost the UEFA Champions League (ESPN no longer have the rights), on top of you losing the English Premier League rights a couple of years ago, what are you going to do about it? I suggest that you ditch ESPN and add BeIN Sports which now has the Champions League rights for NZ & Oz (It's carried by Fox in Australia). Plus BeIN Sports has heaps of other top football as well as rugby (Six Nations etc.)
I terminated Sky TV recently because of your lack of soccer coverage and won't subscribe again until it improves."

[I used the word "soccer" so they don't get confused]

if sky wree going to show football on their channels my own preference would be for the lower leagues as I believe these teams do have a lot more support than people realise, not everyone wants to watch the EPL

How are you going to watch the mighty A League?

I pretty much only have it for A League and NRL.

So I went with Fox Soccer 2 Go (http://www.foxsoccer2go.com/), lucky I signed up to everything before the NZ dollar dropped.

But I have UnoTelly (https://www2.unotelly.com/) and use a VPN so that I'm in the States, then I signed up for a year. Has a lot of football and hoping it will have the A-league again this year. (Bonus it has the NRL as well). It also comes with apps, so set yourself in the US app store and I have it on my phone and iPad.

Depending on the game, sometimes you don't have to even turn the VPN back on to watch the game through the app.

Big Pete 65 suggest the following instead of UnoTelly, but I haven't used them so can't swear by them. Have used UnoTelly for two years with Netflix and had no problems. https://dns4me.net/

Wow thanks Yakcall.

How much is foxsoccer2go? Probably still half the price of sky but just checking.

Unotelly is the dodgy free one right?

Oh yes, prices might be a good idea. I had UnoTelly already but again that was because I was using it for Netflix, it offered DNS and VPNs. There maybe cheaper out there. Its not the dodgy free VPN Hola that was just busted. You can try them for free, to check it out. Costs about $60 USD a year.

Next to sign up to Fox Soccer 2 go, you need to have a VPN and it set to the states or the website will come up Geo Blocked. It costs either $19.99USD a month or $$169.99 USD for the year.

Once signed up, make sure you download the apps too, found the phone one really good.

So yeah, that is why I am happy I signed up a few months ago when the NZ dollar was much higher than it is now. As at the moment it is 1 USD to 1.53 NZD.

UnoTelly would be $91 NZD, Fox Soccer 2 Go is $260.00

Yeah, so when I signed up. One I already had UnoTelly and Soccer 2 go only cost $180NZD as the dollar was strong. Its not as good now.

I've watched the Women's World Cup on it, the Gold Cup and will watch Bundesliga and Champions League too

Apparently I'm apathetic, but I couldn't care less.
