everyone wants up, my demonstrates you in LJ and welcome to another episode of the straight shoot in view of course brought to an association with pits talk you on monday night football and fix previously now your football in fixed. But you know what one thing I did want to discuss quickly is these documentaries that seem to be popping up in the world of football and it's gonna tie into a wider point. So please bear with me. But Manchester City have recently apparently had a £10 million I think it was a documentary they all confirmed well about to be confirmed at this point with amazon. Now that's interesting. But also the news that I figure that day or two before about you venters having their own documentary series with netflix. Now, the reason why I find this interesting and hopefully you do too is purely on the basis that recently there have been rumblings about potentially facebook twitter amazon and netflix getting involved in basically football coverage and it seems to have the big guns such as your Bt sports and especially Sky Sports a little concerned. Now I can understand their concern because if you've had a monopoly like Sky Sports have for the past what, 25 years, this is a serious threat because BT sport obviously is still kind of second banana. But in recent years, obviously with them getting all the Champions League coverage, kind of leaving Sky Sports out in the wilderness in that regard. So they've seen Sky sports have already seen their empire, their football and empire that is getting chipped away at and it started to cost their money recently as well, even though they've had new subscribers is when there was a red, that it is actually starting to cost them in their share price actually fell attached, but amazon and netflix, especially along with facebook and twitter as well entities with deep pockets. Now this could affect, it could affect football as we know it because you look at facebook live, you look at twitter's live capability as well with periscope. It's a case of they can get to places that most of our entities actually corn and social media. I mean social media is very much an invasive technology anyway. And the way people use it from things like this, the straight shoe in view to people just walking down the street and broadcasting something live to us being on Wembley way and somebody during our cup final videos actually shooting us, shooting them la and then broadcasting that live. It's a case of, it's very much an invasive technology And who are you gonna, who you gonna trust to film you a friend of yours with a mobile phone in their hand or Sky Sports with a giant camera as a corporate entity who you gonna trust? I know who I would trust personally
