Submission + - Broadband company buys football rights. Attempts to duck 'dumb pipe' (bbc.co.uk)

ConfusedVorlon writes: "BT has secured the rights to broadcast live Premier League games for the first time, securing the rights to 38 matches a season from 2013-14 to 2015-16.
Broadband providers really don't want to compete on the basis of providing fast internet at reasonable prices. They'll keep trying to charge content providers to send data, they'll keep trying to find new ways to charge customers, and now they may have hit on a way to compete by providing content that isn't available on other ISPs."
