Is this official? The Villa change doesn't seem to be on the Sky website, on our website or on the fixture list as far as I can see.
It's on BBC Sport website fixtures

Do we get extra money for being on the box so much?

We get money for every game that is shown on the telly, so the more we are on the more money we get...if that's what you meant.

 I believe the last time we were in the Championship it was £600k per game, I would imagine with the influx of more television money into the game that could be considerably more now.

This article from June 2017 claims that teams receive £100k per home game and £10K per away game but that is SKY only.

Pleased that Brentford has been moved to the Monday as I was going to have to miss it on the Saturday due to work commitments...finally a game moved for television that suits me!

It's a disgrace they have moved another game and took 2 consecutive Saturday home games off us. Surely there should be a limit on how many times they can show each team in a season

And they wonder why people stop going to games
It's easy to have faith in yourself and have discipline when you're a winner, when you're number one. What you got to have is faith and discipline when you're not a winner.

I actually think we have done worse for games moving about in the Championship rather than the Premiership.  Given my location in Norfolk it is really difficult to get back for Friday night games..gggggrrrr!

Well, let's be honest, what TV company would want to show us under the management of Pulis or Pardew? We're a far more interesting team to watch now and this is an unfortunate side effect.

Sky were supposed to have given the games up to 8 December in the announcement last week and then they pull another one out of the hat. I read on another site that a Dublin baggie had booked a flight for the Brentford game on the strength of the first announcement. Their disregard for fans is appalling. They really aren't that interested in the Championship, which will always be a poor second best to the beloved Premier League, so why can't they just leave us alone.

Yeah, I think we're probably all agreed on that.

Equally (I'd imagine) we're mostly agreed Sky are taking the absolute piss at the mo'.

Very much agreed, make an announcement and stick to it.

If not then reimburse supporters proven advance travel costs, but will that happen? Will it fk.

If asked they'd probably state supporters should have gone to even more expense and stumped up insurance to cover themselves in the event of a change they've effectively suggested won't happen.

It's enough of a pain travelling to the Albion across Brum on public transport of an evening, never mind coming from further afield.

Absolutely w@nk.

I'm assuming you mean a home game as we have plenty of away games at 3pm between those dates....although that could change on Nov 9th when the TV options for fixtures played between 15th December and 15th Jan are released.

The more times you're on the Tv the more money you get, what club is going to turn down money? I think there is a minimum amount a club can be shown but not a maximum (think that was true in the Prem too).

It's a reflection of our relative success and high goals to games ratio that we are being chosen for Tv games.

I would expect our game with Sheff Utd on Dec 15th to be chosen for Tv too, given where we both are in the league., although that would mean that we would be on TV something like 5 games out of 6.

Agree with both of the above, I can see why we are interesting to watch on Sky, but tough when you cannot get to some great matches.

We're just regarded as being in the Prem to make up the numbers, so we'll never get featured much on TV in that division. We're also not regarded as a fashionable club either. I don't think we would have been featured much more if we'd played in a more attacking style.

However, in the Championship we're regarded as being one of the bigger clubs and are going well, so we'll get featured much more often on that basis.
