BT have severely overpaid for that. 300 million a year is a lot of money when you can only watch 2 games a week.

Maybe, but it's about more than getting the rights, it's about killing sky.

Will Michael Owen be commentating on it with Mark Halsey by his side? If so I think I'll stick to Sky.

Only BT will air CL and EL games, but some games will be free to air.

Yes it is, but they will kill themselves if they keep overbidding for stuff. See Setanta for example.

Setanta didn't sell broadband. You get BT Sport just by taking one of their broadband packages. Most people have broadband these days so it's just a case of going through the admin of switching.
