It's quite funny reading soccer fans jumping through hoops about how wonderful the Paramount deal is, afterall, streaming is the future!Hard to see what's changed other than the product now is more inaccessible than it's ever been. At least on Fox it was being marketed to millions of sports fans. Now it's just the Channel 10 audience, most of which don't give a sh*t about sports. With most games exclusive to Paramount it's just preaching to the converted.
It makes audience numbers a bit hazy though. Other than 10 ratings the rest will just be unverified press releases.
But as you say, Fox was (maybe still is) in about 30% of all homes, and Paramount? Also it's worth a lot less cash, but apparently, they are in there for the long haul.
Well, who knows.
To me, their offering looks like the usual crap you can watch anywhere.
A small number will subscribe just for the A-League.
