Default TV Money - How do Sky make a profit?

with the new tv deal between sky & bt, apparently they've paid an average of 9.3 million for each game they show

they can't possibly recoup that money in advertising and subscriptions, so how do they make their money?

Anyone watching todays game (legally) around the world, is watching it via Sky.
Their local TV station will be paying Sky for it.

23m subscribers in the UK and Ireland brings in a few shillings every month I'd imagine.

yeah, i know they sell the rights on around the world, but watching supposedly the best club game in world football, as i am now on freesports for free, i just wondered how they could possibly recoup their money.

for sky sports? really?

"According to data from Enders Analysis, Sky has drawn an average of 819,000 viewers per match for the 2017/18 season, which is an eight per cent rise from this time last year"
