MANCHESTER UNITED ROLLS OUT STREAMING SERVICE FOR 24/7 CLUB NETWORK; NO SATELLITE SUBSCRIPTIONS REQUIRED FOR ACCESS
Manchester United’s (MANU) 24/7 club television network; MUTV, is now available for streaming within the UK and Ireland via mutv.com. The network, which will not require a satellite subscription, is charging roughly $6.40/month for subscriber access on desktop, mobile and tablets. If you are already a subscriber to Sky (SKYAY) or Virgin TV (LILA) or to the Sky digital television platform, there is no additional charge for access. The digital version of MUTV will include Legends matches, under 23 and Academy games, first team highlights, live audio of all first team matches, exclusive interviews, behind the scenes access and film presentations.
Howie Long-Short: Real fans in the UK already have Sky (SKYAY), but this might be good for my MANU fans Stateside with a VPN!
Fan Marino: The ROI here is poor. $6.40/mo. for access to highlights and interviews? At least for ESPN’s $7.21/mo. (carriage fee per subscriber within bundle) you get live NFL and NBA game broadcasts.
