i like this idea, super league could add a lot of value to eurosport i think, but without subscription fees, there would have to be significant advertising struck by Eurosport to subsidise the cost of rights.
Sky can pay so much for Superleague as they have a captive audience. If you want live super league , you have to pay sky. It gets them subscriptions much higher than the cost of what they pay SLE, plus the advertising space that goes with it. Decent viewing figures mean decent advertising returns for Sky.
WHere SLE goes wrong is that, unlike the RFU, they dont realise this potential. The BT deal in Union is huge because they understand that people will switch from SKy to the BT platform. BT use this as a launch pad to their services and so will pay over the odds for a well known competition.
Going back on topic, if something like this happened, there would have to be big commrcials sold to increase or match income, something im not sure Eurosport alone could deliver.
