    I'm just hoping UEFA see sense when the next rights are due and give us something similar to how the European games where before some on terrestrial and some on pay this latest agreement has been a disaster for the fan.

    I totally agree with that comment.

    I'd personally like to see games for the pay tv broadcasters to bid on with others made available for the terrestrial broadcasters to bid on.

    I'm not 100% how the last deal worked but obviously Sky and ITV won the rights to games hence my comment I'd like a similar scenario.

    The likes of Sky and BT could bid and the terrestrial channels the likes of ITV , C4 , BBC could bid for the other matches.

    I think last time SKY and ITV put in a joint bid that had been worked out between them. This is really the only way you could do something like this (BBC and BT have done the same for the FA cup). The problem is it is a major headache to arrange, the big money is always in the 'exclusive' tag so if you lose that the payback becomes a lot less obvious.

    I agree in principal that having some on FTA (a major PSB rather than a side channel) and some on Pay is a good way for the public but it becomes worth a lot less to the Pay operators that way and of course they are the ones splashing the big money.

    BT strikes YouTube deal

    UK telco BT has unveiled what it describes as “ambitious” plans to bring its BT Sport channels to millions of additional sports fans through a range of digital channels. These include social media, mobile and digital TV.

    The plans will see the company stream its Freeview BT Sport Showcase channel on YouTube for both the UEFA Champions League and UEFA Europa League finals. By doing so, it will bring the matches within reach of millions of additional fans who do not yet subscribe to BT Sport.

    “We’ve always said we wanted to give top quality sport back to the people and making the UEFA Champions League and Europa League finals free to everyone in the UK does this in a big way,” declared John Petter, chief executive of BT Consumer. “We’re also bringing BT Sport to a new generation of younger sports fans who view their entertainment online, through social media and on their mobile devices.  We plan to make these finals the most social sports broadcast ever, with lots of exciting content in the build-up and on the night across YouTube, Snapchat, Facebook, Instagram, Twitter and Vine.”

    "Both BT and UEFA are delighted with what we have achieved in our first year as the broadcaster of the UEFA Champions League and UEFA Europa League. The Manchester City semi-final second leg against Real Madrid had an audience peak of 1.7 million and we were privileged to show what most people regard as one of the truly outstanding European matches when Liverpool came back to beat Borussia Dortmund 4-3 in the Europa League quarter finals. That game had an audience high of 1.6 million, which is fantastic.”

    “Now we want to make sure that millions more sports fans can join in from next season, accessing content digitally, whether that’s through social media, mobile devices or digital TV. BT Sport has pioneered the way when it comes to new technologies and digital platforms, whether that’s live Ultra HD, our immersive BT Sport App or red button functionality on YouView. Today’s announcements will take this further, and there’s plenty more that we’re looking at, whether that’s more programming in live Ultra HD, new App developments or our recent Virtual Reality trials at the FA Cup semi-finals and NBA.”

    And such joint deals mean less money for the provider, in this case UEFA. But to answer Davids query, the way it works is a Terrestrial broadcaster and pay TV platform work out a deal between themselves (usually distribution/money) and put in a joint bid to UEFA. In the case of Sky, its usually Sky/ITV. If it were BT, it would be BT and the BBC as they have developed close relationships, both on Talent and on the technical side of things, with the latter, Sony and Humax YouView being heavily involved with BTs 4K development and deployment.

    Scott, that quote you were looking for above. Is it this?
    BT’s general manager of product for BT Sport David Kelly told us that the great majority - roughly 80 per cent - of customers who can order a BT Infinity service today will be able to get BT Sport Ultra HD from launch.

    Thanks visionman, there were a couple of quotes. I did have one that used the ofcom infrastructure report to prove over 70% could get speeds high enough for UHD also. Yours is much clearer quote but I am sure with it being a BT employee and without absolute proof it will be dismissed on here. Thanks for the effort of finding it.

    David it still depends on speed. UHD needs 30Mbps and infinity can do 52Mbps so still plenty free but if you get slower then yes it can hit it hard (they won't sell you it unless you get 44Mbps min). SKY will also use a lot of on demand for its UHD so it will still hit your speed but I assume live sports will be over sat.

    BT strikes YouTube deal

    UK telco BT has unveiled what it describes as “ambitious” plans to bring its BT Sport channels to millions of additional sports fans through a range of digital channels. These include social media, mobile and digital TV.

    The plans will see the company stream its Freeview BT Sport Showcase channel on YouTube for both the UEFA Champions League and UEFA Europa League finals. By doing so, it will bring the matches within reach of millions of additional fans who do not yet subscribe to BT Sport.

    “We’ve always said we wanted to give top quality sport back to the people and making the UEFA Champions League and Europa League finals free to everyone in the UK does this in a big way,” declared John Petter, chief executive of BT Consumer. “We’re also bringing BT Sport to a new generation of younger sports fans who view their entertainment online, through social media and on their mobile devices.  We plan to make these finals the most social sports broadcast ever, with lots of exciting content in the build-up and on the night across YouTube, Snapchat, Facebook, Instagram, Twitter and Vine.”

    "Both BT and UEFA are delighted with what we have achieved in our first year as the broadcaster of the UEFA Champions League and UEFA Europa League. The Manchester City semi-final second leg against Real Madrid had an audience peak of 1.7 million and we were privileged to show what most people regard as one of the truly outstanding European matches when Liverpool came back to beat Borussia Dortmund 4-3 in the Europa League quarter finals. That game had an audience high of 1.6 million, which is fantastic.”

    “Now we want to make sure that millions more sports fans can join in from next season, accessing content digitally, whether that’s through social media, mobile devices or digital TV. BT Sport has pioneered the way when it comes to new technologies and digital platforms, whether that’s live Ultra HD, our immersive BT Sport App or red button functionality on YouView. Today’s announcements will take this further, and there’s plenty more that we’re looking at, whether that’s more programming in live Ultra HD, new App developments or our recent Virtual Reality trials at the FA Cup semi-finals and NBA.”

    Cheers for the feedback, Scott.

    With more coming... 
    David, BT Sport is regarded by both the UK and EU broadcasting industry as cutting edge, as indeed is YouView. They are both unique and as yet unparalleled.
