Sky Sports is one of the main reasons why the 'plastic Premiership' has got so rich. Surprised you'd want to support them by watching their programmes to be honest.
Not sure that would be supporting Sky? The pub has already paid a subscription. Sky doesn’t get any more money just because we rock up and see a game. How about supporting a local business and buying a few pints? It’s the same argument that those folk who boycott buying F&B at the “stadium” use, when in fact the money does not go to FK at all, but instead to a local business.

I was with you there until you mentioned F&Bs. All those establishments in the so called Ozone are directly giving our proceeds to that @@@@@@@@

Plastic premiershit which I hope dies along with its member clubs!

But as states the pub has already got it and I will only be in buying a few pints. Which sounds good to me.

I suppose the counter argument is that if the pub gets more customers by showing Sky games, then it's more likely to renew its Sky subscription. Hence, if anyone wants to take an anti-Sky stance, then not watching footy in a Sky pub is a valid way of doing that.

How much do drinking establishments have to pay for the rights to broadcast Sky/BT? Any ideas?

Bloody ‘ell. Although based on their extortionate subscription prices, I shouldn’t be surprised. Greedy gits.

I have to admit even felt a bit dirty paying £2.20 for a NowTV code on eBay. I think it came from collecting Pringle codes. Haha.
