Football fans will have to pay £283 to watch every Premier League game this month after new PPV Box Office games
FOOTBALL fans will have to fork out £283 if they want to watch every Premier League game this month.
Top-flight bosses have given the go-ahead for every fixture in October to be televised – but it comes at a hefty price.
A total of 15 extra games will be shown on Sky Sports and BT Sport on a pay-per-view basis.
But to watch each game that was not set to be televised will cost a whopping £14.95.
New customers will also have to spend £46 a month to subscribe to Sky.
Plus they will have to pay an extra £13 a month for the BT Sport channels.
This brings the grand total to £238 for fans that do not want to miss a minute of the action.
Furious supporters have described the cost of the pay-per-view games as 'scandalous'.
And Manchester United legend Gary Neville was among those to criticise the new idea.
The Sky Sports commentator and pundit tweeted: "This is a really bad move by the @premierleague to charge £14.95 for single matches that have been shown free for six months!"
