Pre media explosion the pre season friendlies would have been arranged with other local teams and the fans would have been able to travel at minimal costs to a game where ticket prices would have been cheaper as competition for them would have been smaller, thanks to a smaller more localised fan base.So where an increase in media has led to the nationally recognised leagues and their top clubs to a larger fan base and games to be televised on satellite channels.Matches were originally filmed using one camera for recording, this led to comic Harry Enfield producing a sketch of England football matches in black and white where the majority of the shots were of people in the crowd with interspersions of game action but always missing the goals. This was then broadcasted via antenna regionally and then progressing to nationally.The introduction or satellite then allowed games to be distributed globally, 24 hours a day.Football games were initially shown on terrestrial TV, free to the masses, providing people paid a small fee in relation to today’s satellite costs, to the BBC for licensing.Rights to broadcast were then bought by key satellite companies such as SKY.
