“ Premplus broadcasts 50 live matches per season. PremPlus or Premiership Plus is Sky Sports' first and only pay per view channel, which is dedicated to airing live and interactive Premiership football from the Premier League. „
PremPlus is pay per view channel run by Sky Sports. The channel came into existence in 2001, each season over 50 games from English Premier League are shown live. In the first season only 40 games were shown.
The games are mostly broadcast live on Saturdays. Starting time for these games are either before 1pm or after 5pm.
PremPlus will cease transmission at the end of the season because Sky has lost rights to broadcast this particular package from next season.
To justify extra cost of this channel Sky Sports offers more to the viewer. The transmission starts early, viewers can watch the match from various angels, and after the match there is comprehensive review of the game.
This year was the first time I got Premplus channel because of a special deal. Sky is currently running a discount package. Instead of usual £80, now you only pay £30. Half the season is gone though.
I recommend Premplus because it only costs £30, that equals to about £1 a game. Also these games are not shown on other channels
I have listed the matches that will be shown on Premplus in next two months.
