I don't think anyone is calling for him to be a play by play but for the rest I don't think there is any better in Aus soccer. He isn't an ex-player so sure that counts against him for most.Adam as a host, yes. There is none better. As a commentator? I have stated many times before that I'll give that a hard pass.

Simon Hill is the best by an absolute mile, not sure anyone disagrees with that. Unsure why Fox dumped him (must have been financial).
Is this post his sacking? Not sure what the issue would be. SBS have given up football so would even like Lucy Zelic in on things but she may pronounce foreign players names correctly which could trigger people.There is hatred between Hill and fox, especially from hill
May have been the result of alot of factors with his time as an employee, the direction of soccer coverage and/or the contact negotiations (if there were any negotiations that occurred), but he has tweeted previously about his distain for fox (obviously would have been after his contract/employment ended, and he didn't elaborate)Is this post his sacking?

All Socceroos Friendly Internationals H&AIt's all "Network Ten and Paramount+". What is just the Network Ten side of things? Is there a list without the Paramount+ offerings?
9 a month for paramount.Does anyone remember how the uptake of Optus was when the EPL moved? I think that's a bit of an issue with the new streaming service, is pub take up - I don't see it being enormous for an A-League streaming service apart from your dedicated sports bars and football bars. And they're going to rely on that kind of exposure to grow interest in the game, cos people aren't attending in person at the moment for, I think, COVID reasons at the moment.
I can see ViacomCBS getting a really rude shock when the number of streamers who sign up in September/October is only in the 20-30k range. There'd be some merit to them giving it away to pubs for the first season, cos I don't see many of the pubs in my area taking it up. Even the ones you can usually get a tv at for A-league now (and I'm in the inner north, which is obviously traditionally an area with a lot of first, second and third generation Europeans.)
15 for Kayo + 99 a year for Optus + whatever Paramount costs + whatever ends up happening with the UCL - it's starting to add up. And I can see an Amazon or Stan Sport being a pain in the arse buying Bundesliga or La Liga or the EFL depending on the length of their BeIN deals.
