  1. So their boast that having gained a monopoly on European top flight football, subscribers will skyrocket isn’t panning out.

    Not interested anymore. I’ve switched to following some teams that I’ve followed in the past, Leeds, Sheffield Wed. and Hibs on Bein. The way my teams is going they will be playing in the 2nd Division next season anyway.

    i think this makes sense for Optus. the casual fan doesnt want to pay. Its a bit of a shame SBS has effectively lost all top flight football now.
