Premier League UK TV Rights announcement expected soon…

The Premier League is expected to announce soon which TV companies have won which UK TV rights packages for the three seasons from 2019/20.

Sky and BT are expected to continue the “duopoly” for UK TV rights, but there has been speculation of at least one other bidder, maybe from an interent based company like Amazon may bid for one or two of the packages, especially the all matches of a round” pacakges. Amazon recently won the UK TV rights to the ATP Tennis Tour.

Some have speculated that the delay in announcing the deals is down to either the bids not reaching the minimum prices the Premier League want, or some of the packages are indeed having a bidding war. Some have even speculated that Sky and BT may submit similar bids to last time, with only a slight increase in cost.

What UK TV Packages can broadcasters bid for? (all times GMT/BST)

Package A: 32 matches on Saturdays at 12:30 – BT Sports
Package B: 32 matches on Saturdays at 17:30 – Sky
Package C: 24 matches on Sundays at 14:00 and eight matches on Saturdays at 19:45 – Sky
Package D: 32 matches on Sundays at 16:30 – Sky
Package E: 24 matches on Mondays at 20:00 or Fridays at 19:30/20:00 and eight matches on Sundays at 14:00 – Sky

Package F: 20 matches from one Bank Holiday and one midweek fixture programme – To be announced
Package G: 20 matches from two midweek fixture programmes – To be announced

The value realised at this stage of the process is £4.464billion, with two live packages still to be sold with interest from multiple bidders.

Freesat Programme Guide problems

It is being reported that some users with “first generation” Freesat recorders have been experiencing issues with the Programme Guide and recording of programmes.

Problems started during the afternoon of Saturday 10th February, where the Programme Guide simply stopped working and not displaying the correct programme information.

This has also cause many programmes that were scheduled to be recorded to have failed.

It appears that not all Freesat recorders have been affected by the issue.

It seems to be a problem at first generation Humax boxes.

These boxes are “non freetime” boxes, and include the original Freesat recording box, the Humax Foxsat box.

It appears that you will simply have to wait and hope the Freesat and / or Humax can sort the problem out soon.

It appears that later second generation Freetime boxes from Humax and Manhattan Freesat recording boxes are not affected by this issue.
