The Sky Sports and BT Sport PPV decision that Arsenal, Chelsea and Tottenham fans will love. The decision was made during the recent international break to make matches originally unselected for broadcast by the two companies available via pay-per-view at a cost of £14.95 per match. However, the Mirror reports that neither broadcaster is making money from the amount being charged and are concerned about the hit their reputations are taking, with many accusations of being greedy. Along with behind-closed-doors games that will be shown on free-to-air terrestrial TV, Premier League football will once again be split across three broadcasters: Sky Sports, BT Sport and Amazon Prime.

Column: Google’s power can be reined in if the people insist

GOOG GOOGL

The significance of the U.S. federal antitrust lawsuit filed against Google on Tuesday cannot be captured by any narrow debate about legal doctrine or what the case will mean for the company. The complaint marks the return of the U.S. government to a role that many of us long feared it had abandoned: disciplining the country’s most powerful monopolies. As in the days of monopoly-busting Theodore Roosevelt at the dawn of the 20th century, the power of today’s biggest private companies rivals that of the government, and they arguably have more influence over how we live. The Anglo-American tradition, however, seeks to reduce or limit private monopoly power, either through breaking a large company into smaller units or otherwise ensuring that the company remains vulnerable to competition. Google is a classic monopoly, says the complaint, and has used wrongful means to protect itself from competition: specifically, striking exclusive deals with major partners like Apple that ensure its search engine is everyone’s default option.

Tesla Claims China Caused Unnecessary Recall

TSLA

Earlier Friday morning, it was reported that Tesla Inc (NASDAQ:TSLA) would be recalling 30,000 Model S and X vehicles in China. The letter is from Elizabeth H. Mykytiuk, Tesla’s managing counsel for regulatory affairs, shows Tesla didn't think the recall was necessary, but it was the easier choice when compared with battling through China's regulatory body that asked for the recall. “Due to the opinion of SAMR/DPAC that the topic required a recall in the China market, Tesla was left with the choice of either voluntarily recalling the subject vehicles or carrying a heavy burden through the Chinese administrative process," the letter reportedly reads. "While Tesla disagrees with the opinion of SAMR/DPAC, the Company has decided not to dispute a recall for the China market only.”. Tesla said that the failure pointed out by Chinese regulators happened in less than 0.05% of vehicles outside of China vs about 0.1% of vehicles in China.

Bill Gates on COVID-19: 'Fall 2021 won't be completely back to normal'

MSFT

Gates has sounded the alarm on pandemics for years, and in April he told PBS that Americans would not be “completely safe” from COVID-19 until the fall of 2021. But the tech founder and philanthropist has a bleaker prediction these days, citing a sluggish global response to a pandemic that has killed over 1 million people around the world. “The slowness on the global response means that, you know, fall 2021 won’t be completely back to normal,” Gates told Yahoo Finance Editor-in-Chief Andy Serwer on Oct. 15, in an interview that will be aired as part of the All Markets Summit on Monday, Oct. 26. While he’s best known for co-founding Microsoft, Gates has become an outspoken public health advocate and even gave a TED talk in 2014 presciently called, “The next outbreak? In particular, Gates has criticized a decision by the Trump administration to withdraw from the World Health Organization (WHO) by July 2021, tweeting that the move was “as dangerous as it sounds.” The U.S. has already said it will redirect $62 million it owes to WHO for dues this year. As the U.S. signals a reluctance to cooperate on a global level, experts say the country is already experiencing a third wave of the virus amid cooling temperatures and a desire to gather with friends and family members. “A lot of the service jobs can be back in place, and certainly school can be back in place, but we’ll have risk of it coming back into the country during that time period,” Gates said. While Gates acknowledged there’s a chance that vaccines won’t be effective by the fall of 2021, he said the said the likelihood of that is now “very, very low.”.

The Week Ahead: ECB rate decision; Apple, Facebook, BP results

RBS CHFJPY +9 more RBS CHFJPY BP BOJ AUDJPY FB USDJPY HSBA HSBC LLOY 0005

Investor reaction since new CEO Bernard Looney outlined these new plans has been less than enthusiastic, with the share price continuing to fall to levels last seen in 1995. While this is disappointing, turning around a company of BPs size and mindset was always going to be akin to turning around a supertanker. Tuesday: When HSBC reported its first-half numbers in August, it’s shares hit an 11-year low in London trade, after reporting that it could see up to $13bn in loan losses over the course of the rest of the year. Since then, the shares have continued to slip back, as signs of a second wave and further central bank stimulus have weighed on the sector. All but 39 of its hotels in the UK remaining closed, with the assumption that they would have fairly low occupancy until September. While the summer months have seen numbers pick up, the slowdown in bookings and the upcoming end of furlough saw company management warn that 6,000 jobs could go last month.
