Broadcasting and streaming sport


Sir, – God be with the days when Sky Sports and terrestrial channels covered all the major sporting events. Over the last three weeks the following changes have occurred. If you wished to watch the US PGA Golf Championships, you had to subscribe to Eleven Sports. If you wish to watch the US Tennis Championships over the next two weeks, you have to subscribe to Amazon Prime. If you wish to watch all Pro 14 rugby matches , you have to subscribe to Premier Sports.

Joining these facilities is not cheap or for the “faint hearted”. Minimal technical skills will not get you connected.

It would appear that, in future, should you wish to watch all major sporting events, you should be well off and have a degree in computer science. – Yours, etc,
