The online reaction to the initial offer of non-broadcast Premier League games for 15 "pounds" per match seems to be almost unanimously negative. Mostly what I'm seeing is in regard to the price, but some seem opposed to showing so many matches in general, I guess because it would continuine the staggered start times for nearly every match over the course of a match weekend.
So over here they show all the games that aren't being telecast on NBC Sports, on a new streaming service called Peacock. It shows those matches live and also holds them for on-demand viewing. There's other programming on it as well, sports and otherwise. The cost for the service is 5 U.S. dollars per month. I know this price will go up, but I'm wondering if a comparable rate, I think it's about 3 "Pounds" and 80 pence to equal 5 U.S. dollars, would be more acceptable to fans in UK, if not for an entire month of service, at least for an individual match of their preferred club?
I understand about the price being too high, but is there some price point where fans would be willing to pay to view non-televised matches while stadiums remain off limits to supporters? I want the bans to end soon but each newscast I watch makes me think we're looking at 2021 at the earliest, and very likely not until 11=12 months from now depending on progress with a vaccine and case statistics.
Are people going to stay away in total, or only if the price is too dear?
