Most sentanta customers I would like to make educated guess have sky sports. Sentanta going bust would release a large amount of sports rights (not just football) that would get picked up by not just Sky but Eurosport, BBC & ITV. Which means that they would better off as they would be seeing the sports still but paying less..
Only situation where would not be beneficial would be for a customer does not have Sky but has Setanta but as said think that would be a very low %.

Option two - Setanta carrys on
ESPN would again I suspect be renamed to espn but then would remain on Setanta and you would need to pay Setanta to access the channel and so access the football. Then as soon as contract up with Setanta then espn would move over to a sky package.
Option 3 - Rent
They rent space on another channel but not sure the legal side of that.

Frankly the Euro anti-monopoly legislation which prevents Sky from obtaining all the packages is loony in this one, stand alone case.
Sky wouldn't put up the monthly subscription for Sports if they got all the packages.
They wouldn't run another season of "Premiership Plus", as the take up was very low.
In this instance it is actually better for the consumer for one company to take the monopoly, and save them £10 for another premium service, of which they'd only watch the football!

ESPN it is then. Hope someone comes in for a decent offer for the Scottish games. We need to money 1000 times more than the english clubs.

They have gone into administration. Check out the message on their site. I still feel sorry for people losing their jobs, even though I agree with comments above that having two companies showing the football actually costs more than if it were just Sky.

When i called setanta to see if i could subscribe for a month they wanted £27 for the first month and then £12.95 or similar for the following months. So it would have cost me £40 for the month to watch 1 game. Setanta didnt have enough good games on and having paid stupid money for sky sports and movies i dont see the point in paying extra for more sport.
