Which, you know, Fox Sports should’ve and could’ve done. No idea why FoxSports wouldn’t pushed for a FoxFootball channel. But guess ever since they loss EPL rights, they couldn’t care less.Probably the most interesting part of the deal:
the APL will start producing Paramount+ gameday content, from commentary and camera vision of matchdays all the way to a free-to-air A-League panel show.
It’s actually not that bad in terms of cost and quality. Optus probably have had better coverage then Foxtel ever did. I’m sure Paramount will build their database much like Disney+.People will choose what sports they actually want to watch. Both league and afl will likley always continue to have fta coverage (through the anti-siphoning list). Its probably good to have splintering so there is the oxygen for the sports to grow, Rugby and basketball have all be successful in having that oxygen and care from the business that is supplying the broadcasting service.
I guess that depends on your perspectiveThe numbers seem to beg to differ.
Summer is probably the best option for the comp. Would also coincide with the European game, with limited significant breaks from international duty.Channel Ten and Australian Professional Leagues could be set for a stoush with Football Australia, who control the calendar, over the start date for new A-League season.www.smh.com.au
Winter or Summer? FFA want to align the calendar, broadcasters want clear air...
You forgot to mention the phantom stadium in Western Victoria.Winter you get better quality of football, but venue congestion.
Other than Hindmarsh, no other purpose built stadiums so ground sharing the season with NRL. & Super Rugby. Less regular fixtures and strange time slots.
Plus eyeballs and code choices (watching your AFL team over the A League).
You get a bit of that with the summer season, but it's mostly clear
Not sure how much other sport Adam Peacock does for Fox but would like to see him come over.I wonder if the outcry for Simon Hill will come to fruition, they'd be mad not to.
I reckon they will do something similar to what they did when 10 got the BBL.Honestly, I'd like them to try and find new commentators and freshen things up instead of the same old Fox crap.

The guy whose name I forget who partners up with Archie - gone blank here, help me out.
Would be a great start for media/commentary I reckon.
I'm actually pretty excited about this. For the cost of a coffee a week (or less depending what happens with members) you'll be able to get some decent content and all the games. Foxtel couldn't care less about Football any more (as prevalent by Archie Thompson commentating).
Adam Peacock mentioned on the FOX podcast that he is contract to FOX for a couple more years.Need a combination of fresh faces and ones who are trusted with their knowledge such as Simon Hill and Adam Peacok.
I believe the other 2 are on stan, definitely the French. Not sure they would be willing to buy out the contract for peacock, depends on money and clauses of course.Adam Peacock mentioned on the FOX podcast that he is contract to FOX for a couple more years.
He does the Tennis coverage on FOX too but don't know how much Tennis coverage FOX has left either I know they lost the rights to Wimbledon and the Australian Open not sure on the other two Grand Slams.
