Mister Peejay: What does that have to do with the EFL?


NSFW for lyrics, inflatables, and any other thing that pops into the minds of thousands of drunken English football fans

The more notable part of the deal besides the exclusive contract is the new laws about online broadcasting - from when this contract kicks in any game outside 2:30-5:15 on Saturdays which isn't carried by Sky will be broadcast live either by the League's service itself (iFollow) or a club's equivalent, including League Cup fixtures.

Midweek drinking, sure, but mostly at home as people may not want to make the Blackpool-Plymouth schlep for too much longer, based on last night's results. As loathe as I am to mention this, I can see why blackout rules are a thing over the other side of the Atlantic.

n.b. all 2.30-5-15 Sat games will be live to people outside the UK already.
