    Post Crowds to return for opening round of Super Rugby Aotearoa



    It means Super Rugby Aotearoa will become the first professional rugby competition in the world to have fans return live and en masse. "We're incredibly proud, and grateful, to be the first professional sports competition in the world to be in a position to have our teams play in front of their fans again," says New Zealand Rugby chief executive Mark Robinson.

    At the moment, in the UK and Ireland unless you have forked out over £400 a year to Sky, I don’t think so.
    You could listen in on the radio.

    There may well be ways around this. You could buy a VPN for example, perhaps you’ll find it being live streamed on some websites in NZ. But legally, your only option is to get ripped off by SKY.

    In your opinion, of course.

    Others might think that the costs of paying for Sky are more than offset against the amount of quality sports coverage alongside extensive other programming and an excellent user interface.

    What is a waste of money to one is money well spent to another.

    I prefer to let my local pay for SKY and watch my matches there on the big screen.
    Personally beyond Rugby I don’t watch other sports, apart from Sumo which I discovered at the RWC in Japan.

    Sky have over 11 million subscribers in the UK. How do you figure out if £400 is value for money, or not?
    You need to work out first how much it costs them to bring those images to your screen.

    Im guessing that is a per household cost for a year for sky sports (that's on top of a basic sky sub maybe? I wouldn't know?)

    On that basis that's £7.70 a week for the sport, which if you watched a game a week may seem "good value" depending on what your alternatives are. Youd maybe struggle to get a pint per half in a Sky pub for that possibly ... depending on what you drink, where in tyhe country you are etc.

    But you'd have to factor in the basic sky sub if there is one as well if that is the case.

    For those that wish to weatch several football matches plus some internatioonal cricket a bit of league and some union every week its probably a "bargain". For somebody that may only watch one match of <sport X> a week it may not appear so.

    That's then also on top of a TV licence of course to watch live sport on sky even if you dont watch any other TV programs ever, even if its on a device and not a TV [ some caveat sthere about the device being plugged in to the mains and that's where it all falls apart and illustrates how ridulous the TV lcience rules have become! ]

    Surely that is an individual's value judgement dependent on their personal circumstances? Why does the supplier's cost affect the value that you gain? Business is all about delivering goods at a price that people wish to pay above the fixed and variable costs.
    Be reasonable - do it my way.

    Not, generally, how value for money works.

    I’m no economist, but value for money is directly related to overall cost.

    A couple of years ago, Samsung had a change of management. The new team started reducing the quality of production in all areas, yet continued to push up the prices. One projector was selling for €545, while it cost around 55€ overall. The MD said if customers are dumb enough to pay over the odds, why should he turn up the chance to increase profits. It seems courts of law didn’t agree with that approach. The two French engineers who denounced those practices lost their jobs.
    Seven years ago a widescreen TV could have set you back $10k
    Since then the cost of production has been drastically reduced, to the point where it was down to $3500 in 2017 and $2500 in 2018. Manufacturers, in that industry have sacrificed on quality to remain competitive, but some failed to pass on those savings to the customer. Shareholders may happy with bigger dividends in that case.
    However value for money is very much related to cost price. Whether we are talking about value for money for the tax payer on construction costs of nuclear power stations, or to the shopper for any other commodity.

    Source: Example


    An individual can continue to fork out $10k for a wide screen telly, that doesn’t mean he’s getting value for money. It simple means he has more money than sense. Sky’s tarif may well represent value for money. But how can you decide, if you haven’t a foggiest, whether or not they are cutting corners, while continuing to increase the subscription prices.
