Sky commits to cutting betting ads

first_imgBingo Regions: UK & Ireland Sky commits to cutting betting ads New limit to be introduced in August before subscribers are able to block all gambling ads Topics: Casino & games Marketing & affiliates Sports betting Bingo Poker Subscribe to the iGaming newsletter Tags: Card Rooms and Poker Mobile Online Gambling Email Address UK pay-TV broadcaster Sky has pledged to limit the number of gambling adverts across its channels to a maximum of one per commercial break and will allow subscribers to block all betting and gaming advertising from their packages from 2020.Current rules allow for up to four gambling ads per commercial break and include a high percentage of ‘in-play’ ads based around placing bets on sports events that are shown by Sky channels.However, Sky has pledged to show no more than one advert per break from the start of the 2019-20 Premier League football season, which will kick off next August.According to the Telegraph newspaper, the revamped restrictions will apply to all channels for which Sky sells adverting slots, including commercial broadcaster Channel 5. The rules will cover all forms of gaming such as sports betting, bingo and online poker.From 2020, Sky customers will have the option to exclude gambling entirely from their commercial breaks, with Sky and cable-TV operator Virgin Media featuring new technology in their set-top boxes that will give customers the ability to block all forms of gaming ads.Steven van Rooyen, chief executive of Sky in the UK, said: “Our customers are worried about gambling ads on TV – and we understand their concerns. That’s why we’ve committed to limiting the amount of gambling ads on Sky and better protecting those vulnerable to problem gambling.”In addition, Van Rooyen called for internet giants such as Google and Facebook to follow suit, saying that while regulation had made television a “safe space”, dangers remain in online gambling advertising.He said: “There is still a real danger online – and there will be until online platforms are regulated as tightly as TV.”Marc Etches, chief executive of the GambleAware charity, has praised the move saying broadcasters, as well as clubs and advertisers, “have a role to play in helping to make people aware of the risks of gambling”.Etches told “For some time GambleAware has been raising concerns about the relationship between football and gambling. Specifically, we are concerned that the amount of gambling-related marketing on television and online serves to normalise gambling for children, and we have commissioned research into its impact that will be published in 2019.“In the meantime, broadcasters, clubs and advertisers all have a role to play in helping to make people aware of the risks of gambling and where to find help and support if it is needed including the National Gambling Helpline via”The UK Gambling Commission in August set out its new rules over advertising, pledging to take “tougher action” against operators that breach regulations.In the wake of this announcement, a number of major bookmakers have come out in support of cutting back on televised betting ads.Last month, GVC Holdings set out plans to lower the amount of gambling ads it shows on UK television and declared its support for a ban on ads before the 9pm watershed. The official announcement came after CEO Kenny Alexander called for change, saying televised betting ads had got “out of hand”.Responding to Sky’s pledge, rival pay-television broadcaster BT Sport said that it already has certain limits in place regarding betting ads, but it will look to review its approach.BT Sport said in a statement: “While we already limit the number of gambling adverts shown on our channels, we will continue to review our approach to bookmakers advertising and work closely with the ASA and other appropriate stakeholders.“In addition to this we are supporting GambleAware’s initiative to highlight responsible gambling via a campaign that will run on BT Sport and other broadcasters.”Image: Max Pixel 5th November 2018 | By contenteditor AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitterlast_img read more

Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, 2020 has been a good year for buying cheap shares — but only if bought at the right time. Unfortunately, buying before March was largely a bad idea. The FTSE 100 index hit its 2020 closing high of 7,674.6 points on 17 January and then plunged as Covid-19 went global.By 23 March, the index had crashed by almost 35% to close at 4,993.9. This was one of the deepest and steepest market meltdowns in the index’s 36-year life. After November’s boom, the Footsie bounced back to nearly 6,500 points by early June, roughly where it stands today. But are there any lessons for investors from comparing Covid-19 to the 1918 flu epidemic?5G is here – and shares of this ‘sleeping giant’ could be a great way for you to potentially profit!According to one leading industry firm, the 5G boom could create a global industry worth US$12.3 TRILLION out of thin air…And if you click here we’ll show you something that could be key to unlocking 5G’s full potential…Could this be another Roaring Twenties?Covid-19 is far from the first global pandemic — it’s simply the worst in over a century. Humanity was regularly plagued by rampant disease, notably smallpox outbreaks before Edward Jenner pioneered vaccination in 1796. Smallpox routinely killed three in 10 sufferers and its eradication contributed hugely to the world population climbing eightfold in 200 years. More recently, the deadly Spanish flu epidemic of 1918–19 killed up to 50 million. But then came the Roaring Twenties, when stock prices soared for eight years as investors grabbed cheap shares.Although cheap shares have surged worldwide since Halloween, stock prices never rise in a straight line. Hence, investors might learn something from looking back 100 years. When the flu epidemic eased off in 1919, pent-up demand for goods and services surged. Thus, the 1920s was a golden age for investors, especially in the US, which had become the world’s leading economic superpower. A robust, broad-based recovery created huge global prosperity, which is what we hope for from mass vaccinations in 2020. However, rapid rises in stock prices often sew the seeds of the next crash.Cheap shares soared in the 1920sWhen this public-health emergency subsides, consumers (especially the wealthy) will resume shopping and spending, boosting global growth. This happened in style in the 1920s, sending the Dow Jones Industrial Index soaring to new heights. After some steep falls, the Dow Jones closed on 24 August 1921 at 63.9 (versus over 30,000 today). It then soared like a firework, hitting a high of 381.17 on 3 September 1929. That’s a near-fivefold (497%) rise in eight years. Great news for buyers of cheap shares, right?Then came two catastrophic economic events: the Wall Street Crash of October 1929, followed by the Great Depression of the 1930s. As the global economy collapsed, the Dow Jones crashed to close at 40.56 on 8 July 1932. This wipe-out of nearly 90% in under three years erased an entire decade of gains. Indeed, the index didn’t exceed its 1929 peak until 23 November 1954, more than a quarter-century later.What lessons would I draw from this? The first is simple: buying high-priced stocks during a long bull market often works out badly. Therefore, I’m convinced that many US mega-cap tech stocks are very overpriced today, especially Elon Musk’s Tesla. Also, I see the S&P 500 index as having come too far, too soon since its March lows. 2021 will not be a perfect year and there will be many bumps along the way. Then again, despite the prospect of a no-deal Brexit, I still see value lurking in the FTSE 100. That’s why I’d buy cheap UK shares today for better returns in the 2020s!center_img Enter Your Email Address Cliffdarcy has no position in any of the shares mentioned.

The squad that represents the future of France

first_imgLATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS Leading from the front: Louis Picamoles was France’s one world class player during RWC There’s no finishing school in French rugby quite as challenging as Toulon, and the 23-year-old Escande is thriving under the tuition of Matt Giteau with Jonny Wilkinson also fine-tuning his goal-kicking.Emerging talent: Eric Escande is holding his own in a star-studded Toulon side8. Louis PicamolesNoves struggled to get the best out of Picamoles at Toulouse so it’s imperative the veteran coach handles the big No8 well because in 2015 he was France’s one world-class player.7. Wenceslas LauretStill just 26, Lauret has won just seven caps since making his debut in 2010. As he showed in Racing’s rout of Northampton, he remains on his day the most complete flanker in France.6. Camille GérondeauThe move from Racing to Clermont was a wise on for the 27-year-old, who’s stood out in a pack that has struggled for much of the season. Finally looks like fulfilling his potential.5. Yoann MaestriThe Toulouse lock played in all but two of the 44 Tests during PSA’s disastrous reign, yet he’s still only 27 and if his body holds together will provide the front five with much needed experience.Experience: Yoann Maestri will bring much-needed continuity in the French engine room4. Paul JedrasiakRomain Taofifénua and Thibault Lassalle are all in the mix to pack down with Maestri, but the 22-year Clermont lock has a raw talent that gets him the nod. Still some rough edges to be smoothed down.3. Rabah SlimaniThe 26-year-old came of age last season, ousting the veteran Nicolas Mas from the tighthead berth and anchoring the Stade scrum to Top 14 glory. A confidence player who’ll need Noves’ support.2. Guilhem GuiradoThe French press have the Toulon hooker nailed on as the man to replace Dusautoir as captain. Big boots to fill for the 29-year-old, who combines a combative presence in the loose with a strong set-piece. Leader: There are suggestions Guilhem Guirado will captain the new Les Bleus1. Eddy Ben ArousAlways a force in the loose, where his work at the breakdown gives France a third flanker, Ben Arous’ scrummaging has improved greatly in the last year and he’s now at the top of his game. Guy Noves unveils his first France squad on December 29 and the last few weeks can’t have been easy viewing for the new coach who, when he took up his post, promised the fans “spectacular rugby”. There’s been a distinct lack of quality to the Top 14 since the end of the World Cup, and last weekend’s European results produced a sorry return for French clubs. Though the two Parisian clubs won – with Racing’s 33-3 destruction of Northampton producing the display of the weekend – Toulouse, Clermont and Oyonnax all lost, and even Toulon looked a little off colour in breaking down Leinster. It was even worse in the Challenge Cup, with Brive losing in Russia, Pau going down 20-0 away to the Dragons and Montpellier and Agen also losing.Then there are the injuries. Remi Grosso is out for the Six Nations with a hernia; Francois Trinh-Duc won’t be fit until late January after suffering a lower leg injury, Teddy Thomas is also sidelined for a lengthy period, a thigh injury has laid low Wesley Fofana at Clermont and the knee injury suffered by Yoann Huget in France’s World Cup opener rules him out of the Six Nations.Over to you: Thierry Dusautoir has hung up his boots and will leave it to the youngstersWith several players also suffering from a post World Cup dip in form, notably Noa Nakaitaci, Damien Chouly and Sébastien Tillous-Borde, not forgetting the international retirements of Nicolas Mas, Frederic Michalak, Pascal Papé, Dimitri Szarzewski and Thierry Dusautoir, the squad unveiled by Noves in a fortnight’s time is going to be radically different to what we saw under his predecessor, PSASo who might make the starting XV for France’s 2016 Six Nations opener against Italy on February 6? As Christmas is nearly upon us, a time for presents, mince pies and predictions, we’ve come up with 15 players who represent the future of France.15. Brice DulinOne of the few France players to look sharp since the World Cup, Dulin was mistrusted by PSA on account of his 5ft 7in frame. Small, maybe, but lightning quick, with a brain and a step to match.In form: Brice Dulin has been shining for Racing 9214. Hugo BonnevalBack looking sharp for Stade Francais after a year out with a knee injury, the 25-year-old Bonneval beats off competition from his 20-year-old brother, Arthur, currently developing well at Toulouse.13. Gaël FickouGuy Noves knows all about Fickou’s gifts, having nurtured him at Toulouse, and it’s his job to get the 21-year-old centre adding consistency to his undoubted quality.12. Wesley FofanaThe most gifted threequarter in France, Wesley Fofana has only shown glimpses of his brilliance in the last few seasons. Might come under pressure from Jonathan Danty if the strapping 23-year-old centre rediscovers his form for StadeHot-stepper: Wesley Fofana is a classy option in the midfield11. Marvin O’ConnorThe half-Aussie O’Connor has shown his pace out wide this season for Montpellier, having moved to the Med from Bayonne in the summer, and has a footballing brain to go with his speed.10. Pierre BernardMany thought Bernard should have been included in the World Cup squad after another quietly impressive season with Bordeaux. He’s scored over 530 points in the last two seasons and the 25-year-old deserves a shot at France’s perennial problem position.9. Eric Escande Guy Noves will unveil his first France squad on December 29, so after a demoralising World Cup, who are the men who should drive Les Bleus towards a bright future TAGS: Highlight last_img read more
