    Very unlikely only air in HD there has to be SD version same with all Sky channels
    as for availability in UK nope unless via C/S ...the Laws in UK forbid EPL 3pm football to be shown Live on UK TV and still stands unless it has changed in past few weeks without any public announcements ?? ..this Rule/Law does not exist in ROI which is the likely loophole that is going to be exploited soon ,
    Setanta were bought by Eir [ Eircom telephone provider ] and will likely show the usual handfull of 3pm games as per last season .

    Cheers Barney - I've always been a little confused with Setanta, as I'd thought they'd gone bust years ago, but realise that they did continue in ROI of course!

    Setanta/Eir have lost the 3pm rights for the next 3 seasons to Sky Sports Ireland.

    Nobody knows as of yet if a new channel will be set up specifically for Ireland but there is channels already aimed at Ireland for advertising reasons - so maybe one of them will get the 3pm but there is 0 chance a UK card will open this.

    That HD only 3pm could be true but only rumours as of yet.

    HD only as we all know means no CS

    thats what i thought alot easier to restrict epl 3pm in ireland to hd only then stops uk viewing which of course is why sky have purchased the rights .

    What a flipping pain eh, all suggesting that if Sky cant show 3pm footie in UK, then in their view why should WE - poor viewers watch it either???
    How petty can they be?

    Setanta only went bust in England, they still operate in Ireland.

    At the end of last season when Sty bought the rights to share the EPL coverage in Ireland, I suspected it was a backdoor opening to show EPL in the UK, the HD only seems feasible as they have now upgraded their HD encryption.

    Better on foreign.

    And as usual its their main subscribers (Sky I mean) who continue to suffer, being in the UK despite paying Sky's exorbitant fees - and for what?

    PS: See Sky not showing US Open Tennis this year, due to ongoing rising costs - mainly of course brought on by themselves and their unethical activities over the years!! lol!!

    Is there going to be an SD as well as an HD version of this ?

    Basically, Is Sky Sports 5 Ireland SD going to show the 3pm kick offs ?

    Thanks

    Nothing concrete on that but if I was to put money on it, I'd say so yes.

    I have sly uk and used the "add channels" option and sly sports5 clears in SD but not HD, yet on my brothers box neither clears even though we both have sports but only I have the HD option.

    This has nothing to do with Sky, there are laws in place in the UK to not allow games between 3 & 5.15 be shown Live.

    As we are nothing to do with the UK we get a 3pm.

    It's a British Ruling - nothing to do with EU

    I believe it is a Sly Ruling, when they got the Rights to the Premier League, I think they stipulated that there would be No 3pm Kick Offs on Saturdays, and it was the Euopeans who started showing the 3pm kick offs, and of course Ruppie tried and sucessfully stopped some of them, including the Clubs and Pubs in the UK.
