  • Setanta vs. Sky TV - Round One

    <br /> <strong><em>Forget about the Champions League, Wimbledon, or the cricket World Cup. The real sporting battle is about to take place off screen between Sky Sports and Irish pay-TV group Setanta.</em></strong><br /> <br /> The tale of the tape suggests an uneven battle. Sky has been the dominant force in pay-TV ever since people have been prepared to pay for TV sport. Setanta, founded 16 years ago to beam Irish football games to ex-pats living in London, is still barely known outside of Ireland, Scotland, and some sports fans in the US.<br /> <br /> Now Setanta's co-founders, <strong>Michael O'Rourke and Leonard Ryan</strong>, hope to change all that with a marketing blitz next week fronted by the new face of Setanta, Ryder Cup hero Darren Clarke.<br /> <br /> The ads will coincide with the launch of Setanta's dedicated golf channel after poaching the rights to the US PGA golf tour for the next six years from - guess who? - Sky.<br /> <br /> More importantly, Setanta has also broken Sky's stranglehold on exclusive live Premier League football, bagging 46 games a season for £392m a year, beginning at the start of the new season in August.<br /> <br /> Ryan, co-founder and joint chief executive officer of Setanta Sports, was in bullish form at the Clarke's unveiling at a press conference in London today. "We are the challenger brand, the new kids on the block," he said.<br /> <br /> But Ryan played down prospects of Setanta snatching more rights from Sky.<br /> <br /> <blockquote><p><img src="http://www.bigblogmedia.com/images/start_quote_rb.gif" align="texttop" /> "In the next two years we are looking to bed down the rights we have got. Our ambition as a business is to be profitable and return value to our shareholders. We don't believe we have to own everything - there are plenty of rights to go round for everybody." <img src="http://www.bigblogmedia.com/images/end_quote_rb.gif" align="absbottom" /></p></blockquote><br /> <br /> <!–more–><br /> <br /> But are there enough viewers? Setanta's nine channel pay-TV offering, including Setanta Sports 1 and 2, Setanta Golf and Racing UK, as well as Celtic TV and Rangers TV, costs £15 a month.<br /> <br /> Setanta will be looking to build its audience base in a number of ways - football fans who have never subscribed to Sky for whom 46 live Premier League matches a season is plenty; Sky subscribers who love football (and golf) so much that they will subscribe to both; and disillusioned Sky subscribers who want to save some cash but still want more live sport than the terrestrials have to offer.<br /> <br /> Setanta is also looking to hook sports fans with Freeview by launching a "best of Setanta" channel on the digital terrestrial platform later this year, costing a little less than £15 a month.<br /> <br /> But the pay-TV group's problem is that while there are more than 8 million Freeview homes in the UK, not all of them have the capacity to upgrade to pay-TV.<br /> <br /> Sky, meanwhile, will be concentrating all its guns on the pay-TV upstart. Viewers can expect an even more ferocious marketing blitz than usual, letting us know exactly how many exclusive sporting events there are to enjoy on Sky, even if it hasn't got live PGA golf anymore.<br /> <br /> Setanta's director of sport Trevor East knows all about how Sky operates - he used to work there, as right hand man to Sky Sports boss, Vic Wakeling. Don't expect Setanta to bid for the Ashes rights anytime soon, but East will be hoping to put up a better fight than England did. Wakeling, meanwhile, would settle for 5-0.<br /> <br /> Source: <a href="http://blogs.guardian.co.uk/organgrinder/2007/01/setanta_vs_sky_round_one_ding.html" target="_blank"><u><font color="#0000CC">The Guardian Unlimited</font></u></a>
