So Eurosport India's reach and viwership has increased very much from last few weeks as Tokyo 2020 Summer Paralympics has worked well for them along with AEW And Moto GP

Don't worry it will be Star who will make the actual growth in numbers. They will go from 10 people watching ages old highlights for months to 100 million watching the live match in peak season. That's an unmatchable growth Audience who left for months because of lack of fresh sports is coming back for IPL and T20 World Cup. Will happily leave again after that.

This is a joke. Right? They rather have additional channels than air fresh live content on existing channels over ages old highlights.

Star Sports First will not air Premier League reason being it costs less, at Max Star Sports 2 might air alongwith Star Sports 3. Thru service channels PL matches can b aired and channel earns subscription fee of Star Sports Select channels.... There is delicate balance they need to maintain while giving niche sports coverage on channels and OTT so that revenue model remains viable

Right now IPL is overlapping. What happens to the channels for the rest of the year when IPL isn't on? They still don't use the channels airing highlights like Star Sports 1 HD and Star Sports 2 HD priced around ₹19 air live matches on weekends.

Buddy i have discussed in detail about this number of times before... Having IPL, India Cricket onboard means a diff strategy is needed to recover investment as well less room to invest in other sports and even if they do like star sports does then a financially workable strategy needs to b adopted which they r again doing. Please do not compare sony sports with star sports....both have poles apart investments and properties hence have separate scheduling for them

Still in India we r getting niche sports at very low price, investments r high on it and returns r less. The day it becomes mass sport or people r ready to as PPV for it then channels will air it but at present broadcasters can either bet on niche sports or india cricket.... Easy for us to criticise but extremely tough for them to get a workable solution.
