Setanta Sports stop accepting new subscritions – are they about to fold?

The future looks bleak for the Irish broadcaster


Head to the Sign-up page on Setanta’s official site, and try clicking ‘Subscribe Now’.

The resulting deadlink suggests the ailing broadcaster is about to collapse – an outcome that was feared last week.

New reports today, however, suggest that Setanta could possibly avoid oblivion by changing its focus from targeting retail customers to supplying content for other networks. Such an outcome may save some jobs, but it would also help Sky edge a little closer to holding the kind of monopoly they enjoyed a few years ago.
