£22.40 is the super off peak day return fare from Victoria. The £30.40 sounds like the day return fare for the HS1 route from St Pancras.

With a Network Card discount I was able to get a Super off peak day return for £9.45 from Victoria last month but it was only available from the automatic machines on the Southeastern Trains concourse, Platforms 1-8 (Margate trains usually depart from Platform 1 or 2), not from the machines on the Southern Trains concourse, Platforms 9-17. (Ticket office queues at Victoria on Saturday mornings are ridiculous, you'll be lucky to get served within 20 minutes.)

Regarding Football Exclusives: they film all matches for Dulwich, Lewes, Hampton and Staines; if you support one of those clubs and want access to coverage of all matches then £5 a month equates to each match for no more than the price of a decent daily newspaper. They're running a small business with overheads, they're not a charity. (Obviously if you just want to see your team play one of those sides a couple of tmes a season it's not really worth it.)
