Publicans 'may feel under pressure' as Sky takes 100s of cases against pubs illegally showing matches

STREAMING SPORTS CHANNELS is becoming the method of choice for the small number of pubs that illegally show sporting events, as publicans may feel ”under pressure” to due to high cost of subscription services.

In May, a court in Ennis heard that Sky currently has over 200 active cases against pubs around the country over the unauthorised showing of its sports channels.

Broadcasting paid-for sports channels in pubs isn’t like purchasing a package for your home. As a commercial enterprise, pubs are charged far more for Sky with even the smallest pubs paying over €600 to show the sports from these channels a month.

The head of the Vintners Federation of Ireland (VFI), which represents 4,000 members, told TheJournal.ie that, while he doesn’t endorse the illegal showing of matches, the high cost of the sports packages may put individuals under pressure to turn to alternative, cheaper providers.
