    Default This morning as I was taking the cab..

    Heard a news that made me sat up.

    Starhub won the rights to broadcast EPL for the next 3 seasons. And with the soccer commercialisation at such a crazy rate, I'm kinda expecting that those who'd subscribed sports channel will get hit on their pockets.

    Starhub must have won with the highest bid and obviously they are going to pass the cost to the viewers. Damn with the monopoly of the cable TV.

    If only they split soccer into a single channel and other sports into another channel.

    Let those who see soccer pay the cost! Don't let other non-soccer watchers share the cost as well! Argh~~~~~

    Actually, if the other 2 had won the rights, Starhub would have to pay the winner to show EPL on cable TV, and would have to pay even more, and thus would have to increase the subscription much higher.

    and of course willing buyers for the service. That's when people will start buying high gain antennas and UHF/VHF boosters to get signals from indonesia..

    How exciting! 2 sports channels at a crazy price (super sports is a useless channel - the colour quality is zilch compared to espn & star sports.)
