If you subscribe for the streaming version, is that with another company (UStream?). If so I've heard that it's difficult / impossible to cancel your subscription with them.

*I also enjoy Superleague a lot - it is actually possible to like both.


NEVER!! You must only like one whilst deriding the other!

fantastic, now if only they could get a super league deal as well sky would be well gone off my telly.

What does it mean
This tearjerking scene
Beamed into my home
That it moves me so much
Why all the fuss
It's only two humans being.

Urgh, I want this! But I can't afford it at the mo. I need to find room in the budget before the season starts! When does it kick off?

I'm still on that £40 for a year deal from last year.

No I don't care if you're if you're into different bands

No cause for so much hatred, I'm just a different man

Pull off that cover, I will too, and learn to understand

With music deep inside we'll make world unity our plan

Next question, and possibly a clincher. Is it 1 subscription per box or per household?


Yeah you only get it on one box

Like others finding time to watch them all is the main issue.

But at a tenner a month if I miss a few it ain't a problem.
Just because you think everyone hates you doesn't mean they don't.

Great news! It really lifted my mood during a reet rubbish day at work.

However seeing as this is an RL forum I feel the need to finish with a moan...So now I guess I'm going to have to spend some time next week clearing space on my sky box.

Ps. Now if only them pesky Aussies decide on an 11th hour rethink on the shoulder charge so we can see more of the same from Sam B, Kasiano....well I can dream.

The main problem with Premier Sports is that they are not (yet) a HD channel, which means they have standard quality picture and no 5.1 surround sound. In the modern era with ever more increasing resolution TVs, bog standard quality broadcasts look blocky on new big TVs. Does anyone know if they plan to bring in a HD channel? I'm presuming most of their material is filmed in HD

If that's the main problem then it's no problem whatsoever.

All 8 games every week and you're complaining about it not being in HD.

Get over it!

Neither can I tbh. Think I got it around May-ish? It was from a link on here anyway.

the picture quality is a very real issue if you've got a big tv. Premier Sports is unwatchable on mine. I'll be watching from the small tv in the bedroom but would love to see NRL in 50inch HD glory. I'm hoping that they get around to turning the Premier Sports Extra channel into HD but I'm not holding my breath

I was happy enough watching replays on the NRLs website for free, a little miffed I then had to subscribe to Aussie sports, or whetever it was, and now actually pretty ###### off they'v seen fit to sell the rights to this Premier Sports mob, whoever they may be. Almost certainly under captitalized and probably destined to go the way of Setanta is what.
For shame NRL! Surely in the interests of TGG you could have taken a financial hit, foregone the live rights for the UK and, if necessary, given away the replay rights to a free to air outlet. ITV4, C4 or C5 anyone?
Given the time difference issue most viewers won't miss not getting live games anyway. Especially as in the UK it isn't that hard remaining ignorant of the rugby league results! :)

That's all well and good, but ITV et al have to be interested in the product in the first place. The fact that Premier took these rights up three years ago because nobody else could be bothered showing the comp shows that interest in the NRL is pretty low across the UK broadcasters

Give it away for free and have them broadcast it at bad hours and no promotion or sell it to the channel tjhat already does a good job with the Champs and will promote it.

Tough choice.
