Black outs will not make me subscribe to SKY. in fact quite the opposite.

cheers for now Bernie
You've answered it yourself - Sky. They paid through the nose as they always do for things and insist on exclusivity. No other country in Europe has a TV carrier showing games (that I am aware of) insisting on such restrictions so their only option is to watch online.

I used to subscribe to Sky Sports for the playoffs but didn't last year as the blackout on Gamepass was only 1 day and have decided not to this year again. Small token and probably won't make a blind bit of difference to them but they won't get my money (which is the whole point in playoff exclusivity afterall).
