Football fans could actually be allowed to watch every single Premier League game in the future. A new match option which is going to take place at 3pm on Saturdays could well be on the way.
There are major leagues in Europe and that includes the Premier League, Serie A and even La Liga. They have changed their TV deals in the last few weeks, and this has given fans the chance to watch more games than they ever have done before. It looks like this could be here to stay for the future as well when you look at the amount of streaming deals that are currently taking place. This could potentially put more money into the game.
The World of Football is Changing
Of course, it would seem that streaming isn’t the only thing that has changed in the world of football. Other major changes include betting. In the past when you bet on football, you had to go to your local bookies and you had to place a cash bet. Perhaps the most technological element was calling the bookie’s by phone to place a bet if you had an account.
Now, betting on William Hill and other sites has made it so you don’t even have to leave the house to bet on your favourite teams. The same concept applies to streaming; it just goes to show how far the sports and betting industry has come. At one point, if you wanted to watch a game, the only way for you to do this would be for you to go and see the game in person. Now you can stream it on any site you want, with ease. With all of these positive changes in mind, it wouldn’t be surprising to see how football viewing has changed.
The fact that we now have increased streaming from a huge range of football channels, is remarkable. So far the kick-off times for football have not changed either. It’s more than possible to go back to the normal 3pm kick-off slot for some games at the weekend and this can easily be streamed simultaneously. Fans will be able to choose who they want to watch as well. The main thing here is that some new kick-off slots will certainly appear, but changing the time for every game is unlikely. This includes the kick-offs that happen midweek. This would make it tough for fans to be able to go to the games.
Watch Any Game
It’s important to know that there is a difference in being able to watch any game, and then every game. Most people don’t actually want to watch every single game that is televised, and that is why you don’t need a lot of different kick-off times. The ability to watch any game is different, as the games can start at the same time as one another or they can even overlap as well. People can easily choose which one they would like to watch. The current deals do make up a huge part of this, but when you break everything down, you will soon see that there’s a lot of opportunity to show the remaining games to fans who would like to watch the teams. The benefit of this would see fans of much smaller clubs in the league, being able to watch and support their teams on TV. Normally it is games like this that are not shown, but it looks like all of this could be changing for the better. Who knows what the future holds for football, but right now it is safe to say that it is looking brighter than ever. It’ll be interesting to see what happens from here.
