Just a few years ago, it would have seemed unbelievable that the UK’s leading telephone communications company and its paid-for TV provider would be engaged in a bitter, costly rivalry.
But the latest battle between the two giants – fought over Premiership football TV rights from 2016-18 – marks another ratcheting up of a land grab that at the moment appears to have few limits. And it isn’t just confined to football either: BT and Sky are affecting how people in Britain communicate, are entertained and go online.
The reason that the two previously distant companies have become so interested in each other’s affairs is the lucrative practise of cross selling communication, television and broadband services. This has led to a new trend amongst businesses: the ‘quad play’ package, consisting of home phone, mobile, broadband and subscription television.
At the moment, quad play packages are still fairly unpopular in Britain. Several companies see them as having huge potential, though, and Virgin Media has already made significant headway upgrading its customers to quad play packages. The benefits of such deals to providers are clear, saving millions on customer acquisition by making more out of every customer and discouraging switching.
At the beginning of the year, two deals emerged within short succession of each other. First of all, Sky announced an agreement with Telefonica to enter the UK mobile market. Then, BT announced a takeover of EE, adding one of the country’s biggest mobile networks into its roster of services. The difference between the two deals – Sky is renting space from an existing network, BT has bought one – may well prove pivotal in the coming years.
After Sky spent seven years eating into BT’s broadband dominance, BT had begun to fight back. And that fight was escalated to new levels when BT made a surprise entry into the world of sports broadcasting two years ago with a £738 million purchase of 38 games per season. BT has offered its sports coverage free to broadband subscribers so far, but few expect that to continue too far into 2015. So far, the strategy has worked: broadband and TV revenue and subscriber numbers are on the right path.
Amongst those who buy shares online, there was little to separate BT and Sky last year. Both ended the year worth around 6% more than at the beginning. The recent negotiations over football rights, though, have sent the two companies on very different paths.
BT came away with just a few more games than it can show in its current deal, increasing its roster from 38 to 42. Sky, on the other hand, grabbed 10 extra games to increase its total to a dominant 126 matches per season. It kept the key Sunday and Monday night slots, and the new 10 match Friday evening package.
However, in order to maintain its dominance, Sky increased the amount it pays per game by some 67% to £11 million. BT is paying just £7.6 million, up 17%.
Both companies were quick to champion the good business they had done. But the markets appeared to believe that Sky had been forced to overpay by BT, and Sky’s share price plummeted some £50 off of the back of the deal. BT popped £15 at the same time.
So far, then, BT has been playing an impressive counterattack against its burgeoning rival. But with the potential for risk and reward higher than ever before, few can predict where BT, Sky and the Premiership might be headed by the time the next TV rights come up for auction.
