Poll: Would Exclusive BT Sport Coverage of SPFL Be a Good Thing?

Poll: Would Exclusive BT Sport Coverage of SPFL Be a Good Thing?

BT Sport are reportedly set to buy exclusive rights to coverage of the SPFL.

But is that a good or bad thing for Scottish football?

The TV station has muscled in on the game in Scotland over recent years, providing financial backing, but also an alternative to what Sky Sports and BBC Scotland offered.

Their coverage has allowed several new pundits to become part of the mainstream Scottish football discussion – particularly Chris Sutton and his sometimes controversial views.

Michael Stewart, Stephen Craigan and Kris Boyd have also benefitted from the exposure afforded to them by BT.

Now it looks like we could be set to get more of them, with dailymail.co.uk reporting that BT are willing to spend more than the record £31million per year deal that Setanta once had.

The question is – do fans want a monopoly on the Scottish football coverage? And if so do they want BT Sport at the helm of that?

We asked our Twitter followers if it was a good or bad idea – you can vote here:

What’s your view – would you welcome BT Sport as exclusive rights holders?
