    Liverpool top the list, us down in 13th on £114m overtaken by clubs Newcastle and Crystal Palace. We only received the minimum facility fee for 10 games, whereas massive clubs Newcastle and Palace got 16 and 12 respectively

    Top half all season, pretty much, and got to a cup final yet appear on tv less than Cardiff and Brighton!

    WillisWasTheWorst Its making less grammar mistake's thats important

    Can anyone remember how many of our 10 live games were not against 'Big 6' clubs?

    The Cup run would ease us back up the table.

    It's been noted that new teams in the Premier League get a lot of games on TV early doors as the buzz of being in The Best League in the World™ kicks in. Not been in the UK for most of this year but I guess they'd have been on TV a fair bit as the season wore on, given they had crucial relegation scraps every week? Compare that with us, although we definitely had something to play for, ultimately the prospect of Europa League isn't what attracts punters to games between 7th and 8th. Them's the breaks, even though I'd still say the country was robbed of watching us in full swing before our end of season slump!

    And Brighton? Second season and terrible to watch

    Here's the full breakdown:


    Last year was £106m, year before that £102m.

    As we rope in a relatively small audience we're always going to be low in the TV pecking order. They have to pay us for 10 whatever happens so are always likely to try to fill that quota with games against the top 6 mainly. The only one I was a bit surprised didn't get picked for TV was us at home to Wolves in April.

    If I was guessing what influenced that choice - modern stadium, top media facilities, great spread put on for the crews and a day by the seaside afterwards.

    Plus they were in a relegation battle, granted they were quite a way clear before being sucked in during the second half of the season, but I guess those 16th vs 17th would be more of interest to people than 7th vs 8th even if latter is far more entertaining

    Pretty mental that 76% of Liverpool's games were on TV.

    There was me thinking that the media team actually helped raise our profile overseas!

    I'm happy we only appeared on TV 10 times as it means more 3pm games.

    Article in Telegraph today

    -up to date every club earns £43.2m from international tv whether they finish top or bottom-so with merit money for places on top and TV appearances meant Citeh got £151m and Huddersfield £96m
    - going forward the ratio between the lowest earning club and the highest will have a cap of 1.8x. Estimated to be worth another £90m for the champions over three years
    -overseas rights are growing in value v UK domestic rights-PL seek to exploit the Indian and Chinese markets ahead of next round of TV deals (2022-2025)
    -unsurprisingly these overseas markets wont want to see BHA v WFC as much as any game involving the big 6

    Summary (my paraphrasing)

    England fortunate to have big 6 rather than 1 or 2 as Juve win in Italy for 8th year in a row, Bayern Munich 7 in a row, PSG 6 in last 7 and Barca 4 in last 5 but the change in the way money is distributed in PL now is a sign that the 6 here (even without their huge wealthy backers) are moving away from the rest.

    This might stop the breakaway "super league" in Europe for the time being but the wealth of the 6 in PL will inhibit the chances of anything unplanned by the other 14 happening

    Not really news but puts into perspective perhaps what we have to spend this transfer window relative to others be they the other 13 or the 6 given how the future revenue might pan out

    From a selfish perspective I'd have liked us to have more 12:45 KOs this year but now that I'm coming back home from Asia I'm happy for us to have 38 3pms!

    Agreed 100%. I had to miss three home matches this season because they were moved for TV. If the TV companies have so much money sloshing around they should compensate, via the clubs, season ticket holders who cannot get to home games they have moved.

    The team are looking to extend it to 46 games the following season (up to 49 including potential playoff matches).
