    Daniel Craig is a Liverpool fan and a shit James Bond. I’d go for Timothy Dalton or David Threlfall.

    The other clubs will be all for this, and falling over each other to get their own deals if it’s a success. City leading, others follow as ususal.

    It doesn't have to be a City fan, just someone with a passion for the sport and a good narrative voice. Although now you mention it, did DC narrate the shitty Scouse doco?

    Sky apparently spitting their dummies out about this due to the PL rights package they believe they have.

    Thing is what are they going to do? Not report on City even if we are top of the league? Replay every controversial offside and red card in our favour and ignore the ones that go against us? Focus on Liverpool and the scum as that is where their subscriber base is in the majority? Yeah, bridges burnt already Sky.

    Amazon are by no means perfect but if they a heralding in a new age of sports viewing where I get to pick and choose which games i want, rather than having to have a package whereby I won;t know the games before I sign the contract, may get a handful of my teams games but also a load of tosh that I would never want to watch (nor have the chance), and have recognized the value in MCFC as a brand and supporter base due to the neglect of other broadcasters en mass, then viva la revolution!

    It's quite simple. Sky (& BT) have the rights to match footage. As long as the documentary sticks to behind the scenes coverage (as does Tunnel Cam & Inside City) then Sky have no say in the matter as far as I'm aware. Amazon could also pay Sky to include match footage as well so I wouldn't take the Mail article too seriously.

    I hope someone in City's PR team has called Sky this morning to explain that this could have been them if they just treated us with a bit more respect. You want access to City? You change your City rhetoric.

    I don't really understand why Sky would have a problem with it?

    They have the rights to the match footage, so Amazon would have to pay them to use it?

    City already produce their own in-house content. I think the NY Yankee owned YES network help with that.

    United have their own TV channel with their own content. As do Liverpool and Chelsea. All, I assume, show behind the scenes footage.

    Channel 5 did the documentary on Liverpool. NBC did a one hour program on City a couple of years back.

    So why would Sky be arsed if Amazon did a documentary on City? What's the difference?

    The only thing I can think is that this is a brief from the PL. They've done their usual bargaining tactic when the new rights come up for negotiation - linked a new company with being interested in bidding for the rights.

    In the past they've linked Apple, Disney, Facebook and others with bidding for PL rights, in order to make sure Sky don't get complacent with their bid. This year they've linked Amazon with bidding for the rights.

    On the 'owning' match footage thing, is it as simple as that? City are able to show match footage and highlights on the official site. Do they pay Sky and BT for that? Are web broadcast rules different?
