How might new TV deal affect football?
- From the section Football
Dan Walker is joined by Mark Lawrenson and Kevin Kilbane for this week's Focus Forum, as they discuss the new Premier League television rights and how it will affect player wages.
It was announced on Tuesday that Sky and BT Sport will pay £5.136bn to share live Premier League TV rights from 2016-2019.
Kilbane believes the increased television deal will fuel a further rise in player wages while Lawrenson does not think clubs will lower ticket prices despite their increased earnings from the deal.
