No Premiership on Local TV

It has been confirmed that Premiership will only be broadcasted by Astro, not TV7 nor Lativi. It's the first time that people will have to subscribe to commercial TV cable just to watch soccer match, especially English premiership league. I myself don't subscribe to Astro and it was very pity that no local TV station dare to buy the license to broadcast it, even though they could gain a lot from that (EPL is one of the highest rating TV program, so the rate for advertising will be very high).

Well, probably people will subscribe to Astro, but i doubt that it will be as much as expected. I hope there's another solution about this (probably looking for videos in YouTube or at Football's site?). We will see it when the EPL officially started next week.
