I don't really think these right will impact on other channels/sports - even with 6 live games at the same time there are still 6 other channels left and (with my limited soccer knowledge) - a lot of these games would even potentially be played midweek when not much else is happening live.

Just on a side-note though (bit off-topic - sorry), we are actually LOOSING one SuperSport channel - not gaining anything - just fewer repeats hopefully.

Currently we have Blitz, SS1 to SS9, Select, SS12 & 2 x event channels for overflow - 14 channels in total. When the changes take place we will have Blitz, SS1 to S10 and then SS11 & SS12 as overflow channels - so 13 channels in total. We are in effect loosing SS7 with SS12 content moving to SS7. Will will have SS8 & SS9 in HD though and we are also getting GINX (although not a SS Channel) so I recon better off in general.
