The concept of pay-per-view football at 15 quid a pop has been about as welcome as a flat phone battery.
However, the Premier League seems determined not to let a little thing like overwhelming public condemnation stop them, so the experiment continues with Crystal Palace’s trip to Wolves.
At least fans forking out their hard-earned cash should get a good game, as an easy on the eye Wolves sides take on a Palace outfit who show no fear on the road.

Our Top Odds Pick – Draw – 11/5 at William Hill
All that separates Wolves & Crystal Palace in the Premier League is one goal, and both sides have won two, lost two, and drawn one of their opening six games.
Crystal Palace have won two of their three away matches, losing heavily at Chelsea in the third, while Wolves have won one, lost one and drawn one at Molyneux.
So with so little to separate the two sides, we reckon a draw is on the cards in the Black Country.
Over 1.5 Wolves Goals – 5/4 at bet365
Wolves have scored just one goal in their last three games, and are one of the lowest scorers in the league, but that only tells half the story.
In the last three games, they have averaged over 14 shots per match, and they are top ten among all teams when it comes to their number of attempts, which proves they are having no trouble getting into the final third.
And against a Palace side who have kept just one clean sheet this season, you have to think that a Wolves outfit with this much quality, can get their goalscoring groove back.
Our Long Shot – Daniel Podence to Score the First Goal – 7/1 at 888sport
If bookies offered a “Portuguese guy to score for Wolves” bet, we’d all be millionaires by Christmas.
One such Portugeezer is the twinkle-toed Daniel Podence, and he’s been in decent form this campaign, with two assists from five appearances.
He hasn’t opened his goalscoring account yet, but after netting in this fixture last season, we reckon he’s a great bet to get off the mark and open the scoring on Friday night.
