Sky Sports News no longer free to view
Posted 23 August 2010 - 07:28 PM
According to Sky, its existing subscribers with either the Sports or News & Events packs will be unaffected by the move. Those who do not have either of these will be able to view Sky Sports News as a bonus channel until February 2011.
Sky has pledged to put more reporters and production trucks on the roads in order to respond quicker to breaking news and revealed it will also be adding new presenters and programmes.
And als a HD version of the channel has been launched today.
So will RL benefit from all this?
Probably not as its football dominated anyway.
Can't see truks on the roads to RL grounds but you never know, plus those without Sky wont have to put up with Offiah on Sundays anymore!

Simon something or other? He once did a piece for Blue Peter on the 2000 RL World Cup. He went and learned to play at Hillsborough Arena. Some great shots of him playing a game with loads of kids, him wearing a Hillsborough Hawks shirt. The Ireland team were meant to turn up and be filmed, but decided to turn up really late when the light was too bad, so Blue Peter couldn't film then.
The Blue Peter producers were furious with the RFL and Ireland RL. No wonder we get shoddy coverage when we can't even take opportunities like this properly. The piece was only saved thanks to the intervention of some Sheffield Eagles players and coaches, plus all the volunteers from Hillsborough.
Sorry, as you were.
