As a pundit on talkSPORT, former Crystal Palace chairman Simon Jordan often gives a businessman’s view on football, rather than from that of an ex-pro or supporter.
Earlier this week he made an intriguing proposition over the current situation of the broadcasting rights in this country, saying that the Premier League should follow the likes of Netflix and the NFL in the way which football is televised.
Jordan suggested a streaming service be made available to supporters, where fans are able to watch games all from one service and subscribe solely to that, rather than the current state of play which sees it shared across broadcasters.
Sky Sports and BT Sport are the two broadcasters that show Premier League football this season, while Amazon Prime also won rights to show live games at the most recent bid, adding a third subscription fee for supporters to pay.
Currently, supporters spend hundreds of pounds per month to watch live matches, which is set to rise up as high as £1,000 per season to watch games across Sky Sports, BT Sport and Amazon Prime.
Jordan has suggested a more affordable option for the everyday football fan, which he also believes would increase profits tremendously for the rest of the Premier League clubs.
