BT Sport launched in the UK yesterday with a one day Freeview event to give potential new customers a taste of what they can expect with a full subscription. The day peaked with a 1.21% share (some 207k viewers) for the Bayern Munich versus Manchester City European Football (Soccer) match, according to BroadcastNow.co.uk According to a BBC Business article, BT has spent over £700 million in the last few years for upcoming Premier League Football matches, compared to Sky's £2billion+ for the majority of match rights. ITV, Setanta and ESPN have tried taking on the Sky giant when it comes to exclusive live sport coverage and have been found lacking, and it seems BT has already failed to put its best foot forward.

Boston Official Wants Ban on Anyone Under 18 Attending UFC Matches
On August 14, Boston will have an “Ultimate Fighting Champion Homecoming,” and celebrate the return of the sport to the city. But a team of parents, doctors, and city officials are trying to put the chokehold on the “extremely violent form of entertainment” by banning minors from baring witness to the martial-arts matches. The “UFC Homecoming” event, which will be held at the Barrio Cantina on Boylston Street and hosted by UFC President Dana White, is scheduled to take place just weeks after City Council President Stephen Murphy filed a resolution asking to put an end to anyone under the age of 18—even with a parent or guardian—from attending the fights. “Cage fighters at the amateur and professional levels have competed in public stadiums and on television bearing Neo-Nazi messages in their tattoos or on their clothing,” Murphy said in his filing during a City Council meeting on Wednesday, “and extensive research has associated exposure to media violence with a variety of physical and mental health problems for children and adolescents, including aggressive and violent behavior, bullying, desensitization to violence, fear, and depression.”
