Slightly OT, but I've just spent a couple of months in the UK and the way the sport is spread across different providers is both expensive and very annoying. Even for one sport like football, the competitions are divided up and you need subscriptions to Sky, BT Sports, Premier Sports and Amazon to catch it all.
DStv might be a monopoly and that rubs people up the wrong way, but it sure is convenient.
Good point - maybe the solution is to allow all providers access to all content, at the appropriate licencing fee, based on their viewership. I mean, my ISP doesn't have exclusive rights on which websites I can consume. Yet.
