      Sky Sports to broadcast live 3pm Premier League games in Ireland

      Sky Sports to broadcast live 3pm Premier League games in Ireland
      Setanta Sports have bought to rights to the 5.30 Saturday evening kick-offs

      Sky Sports will broadcast live coverage of 3pm Premier League kick-offs on Saturdays from next season exclusively to Irish customers.

      The move is a significant one for Sky as blackout laws in the UK mean that no live football can be shown between 2.45 and 5.15 on Saturday afternoons. However, those laws do not apply to Ireland.

      A total of 33 Saturday matches will be covered live by the satellite broadcaster, bringing their to 159 Premier League games in all. Sky will now also broadcast matches live on Friday nights.

      This is kind of old, but this could lead to a big black market in Republic of Ireland viewing cards being used in the UK.
      Sky will have exclusive coverage of ALL English Premiership games (including Saturday 3pm kickoffs) from this summer in Ireland.

      Anyone got friends/family in Ireland?

      With more and more Sky+ HD STBs being connected to the Internet now, I might suggest that these black marketeers may have a little bit of a problem.

      More and more content is being made available on-line. More features (i.e. search) benefit from being on-line. Even booking Sky Box Office Events is easier when the box is connected to the Internet.

      Sky Fibre Unlimited Pro: Connected at 80,000 kbps / 20,000 kbps

      The on demand content isn't the same in ROI and there isn't even a Family pack option there. They still only have the "old" HD mix option.
