Football is being used to compete with the convergent offers but beyond its attractive pricing we’ve seen from 6 euros, indeed each operator requires hiring different services that makes that your final price and conditions are very different. For this reason, we are going to compare options to see football in Spain and thus better understand their differences after the changes made today by Vodafone.
Movistar, Vodafone, Orange and Telecable they are the main pay TV platforms that issue the football this season, finding in the content and coverage the main differences that will limit us when it comes to being able to choose alternatives.
Movistar, with full coverage
The have been made with the rights of the League by 600 million euros although it was forced to open part of its contents to other platforms, had to assume some advantage for Movistar which is not other than the power issue exclusively the Liga Adelante and other international leagues through Canal + Liga 2 and Canal + Fútbol. Against, not beIN Sports so it has It does not emit the Champions League or the Europa League.
But the great advantage of Movistar is the possibility reach all households through satellite there where not possible due to lack of access to Movistar + (formerly Movistar TV) in areas with poorer quality ADSL.
The price of the full package of soccer in Movistar is 25 euros per month those who will have that Add the convergent offer that includes other 80 TV channels of the obligatory family pack and unlimited calls on the phone with 2 GB from 65 euros with fiber 30 or ADSL and 77 euros with fiber to 300 megs. What makes a minimum to watch the football with Movistar from 90 euros per month.
Although the operator will continue allowing service satellite no need for Fusion, the cost of high will that not it worthwhile and will be more profitable to hire the entire package Fusion +.
Vodafone limited to areas with fiber
To see the football in Vodafone, it is necessary to hire Vodafone TV with the main limitation that at the moment it is only available in areas where it has fiber coverage (some 9 million households) works to offer soon also direct ADSL customers. Requirement that we would also have put MoviStar to the hiring of television is mandatory even without football.
Vodafone TV includes forty channels for the whole family and has a cost that varies the convergent offer Vodafone One from 59 euro with 200 minutes and 1.5 GB on the mobile. What makes a minimum payment of 69 euros per month League and Cup or 79 euros with package of football full which includes beIN Sports with the broadcast of the Champions League and Europa League.
Orange offers cheapest soccer, time
Orange is the second operator with more soccer coverage since that is available both with ADSL coverage of fiber in about 5 million homes with direct coverage. It would only be away from the more remote and small populations.
But Orange has an advantage against its rivals. It is not necessary to hire the basic TV package so with convergent offering is enough, what makes that the final price will be reduced significantly if you don’t get rid of Orange TV package.
Its price part, in the same way that Vodafone, the 10 euros to see the League and the Cup, proving the price minimum of 53.90 euros per month with Kangaroo savings rate that includes 150 minutes and 1.5 GB. And if you want to add the Champions League and Europa League, we will have to add 5 euros in a promotional manner throughout the season if you hire him before the end of the year while it will have a cost of 15 euros for procurement in 2016.
Telecable, since the TV only in Asturias
The Millicom Asturian has kept the marketing model of football which were used up to now and offering the League, Cup and Champions package without the need of hiring fiber or mobile operator. Its price is therefore priori much more attractive than the rivals.
Telecable offers all football for 25 euros per month to see it from the TV and online but the service is only available in Asturias in fiber coverage area even though it offers a form only online for tablets, smartphones and computers in all Spain that it is possible to hire for 20 euros. And if you want to further adjust the prices, you can hire only the League and Cup Champions and Europa League to save 5 euros per month.
If we compare on equal terms with Movistar, Vodafone and Orange, you should add one of convergent offerings available from 70 euros with TV, fiber 100 megas and mobile with 200 minutes and 1 GB, which would make a total of 100 euros.
