    @redabbey , any updates on the amount of matches Sky and BT can show this season? And at different days/times? I know the total has increased from 29 to 30. Thanks in advance as always :)

    Edit: I found on RAWK that it's 32 times for BT at 12.30 on Saturday's.
    To be greedy, I'd also love to know the amount of times each club can be shown on/at a certain day/time.

    It has got much harder to predict games. I hope Arsenal will not be a Monday night game, of course BT might use a first pick on this match. I'd love to read sometime from a career insider how the whole picking process works but nothing like that has ever come out.

    BT are paying a much higher price per match in this cycle of television rights compared with the season that has just ended.

    Saturday night games going to be a nightmare travel wise.

    Looking at the fixtures in December if that farce of a club championship goes ahead, not the worst fixtures to come back to.

    Looking at the above am i right in reading that as there is 8 Saturday evening games and a max a club can be picked is 5? And also between Friday and Monday we can be picked 5times in total over them two nights? So basically potentially the max out of the next 37 games is 9 over Friday, Saturday and Monday nights?

    With the profile of the club, I think Friday night would be popular for tv companies and with potential CL games the following week, it might suit the team too. LFC have been on it quite a bit. Last two seasons Chelsea, Arsenal, Wolves, Huddersfield and Southampton of the top of my head

    Thanks again for your help. You are a mind of information and knowledge.

    To check; Package A is BT, Package B, C, D and E are Sky, Package F and G are Amazon Prime?

    Do my best by googling. While there is a huge increase in the number of matches being televised in the UK, the net result of simultaneous transmission of games in this contract does not mean that there will be a massive reduction in the (already few) Saturday 3pm matches involving Liverpool.

    Package G is also BT sport.

    It will be interesting to see how Premier Sport broadcast the rights they have won for the ROI.

    The days of booking well in advance are slowly dying off.
    Nightmare booking flights and accommodation and time off work for the games

    I would not be so sure that the Eir channel has a longterm future.

    Is it worth it really?
    I think we only had 2 3pm games shown on this for the season gone by.
    And how many games did we play at 3pm on a Saturday? Not many . Id say bout 4
