It makes you laugh doesn't it. A massive weekend of RL and they televise one game and its not even a champ game ridiculous.

I wouldn't mind matt but its probably the biggest weekend of the year for RL and they cover one game and its not even the champ. No wonder we can't get outsiders interested in our game.(although I doubt many people subscribe to premier unless they are rugby fans anyway) but you know what I mean.

The Town v Haven match was scheduled for Good Friday but Premier Sports wanted a 5 .15pm kick off but the Police objected because on GoodFriday, Easter Tuesday and the following Saturday they have what is known as "Uppies and Downies". This is one of those ancient games where anything goes andno rules apply and those games always start at 6pm just a few hundred yards from the Town ground. The PS couldn't fit in at any other time and cancelled thematch from their schedule.

I remember when .............................

"It is impossible not to feel a twinge of sympathy for Workington Town, the fall guys this season for the Super League's determination to retain it's European dimension, in the shape of Paris. While the French have had every assistance to survive, the importance of having a flagship in a heartland area like West Cumbria has been conveniently forgotten." - Dave Hadfield - Independent 25th August 1996.

That's a shame Keith as I would of liked to watch that game. It's arguably the tie of the weekend.

I would just love them to give you prior warning that your subscription is about to lapse, instead of letting you find out with a message on your TV screen telling you so, and no match recorded.

Been on £3. Something since they tried to put the price up last year. Told them to shove it as how could they justify a +20% price rise. She gave me it for 3 quid and been paying that for at least 5 months.

I had the same experience andyc. I sent two e-mails to them asking when my annual contract ended, as you have to give 30 days notice to say you are not renewing, and I didn't get a reply to either. I then telephoned them on their 8p per minute phone number and was told my annual contract had been renewed 2 weeks earlier at £95. I wanted to cancel and take out the offer they had at that time of £80 annual subscription but they wouldn't let me so I was stuck again with the £95 sub.

I always diarise these things so I know when they are to finish. I also paid £95 and was told it was because they were doing the full Aussie programme of matches. My cancelling of Sky Sports at the end of the RL season pays for most of it anyway. I renew SL after three months and that saving goes towards the Premier Sports sub. Some of the other schemes mentioned seem very good, do they also give full Aussie games coverage?

Plenty of NRL on every weekend, which I had much prefer over any English Rugby League.

I think youre expecting a little much from Prem Sports, I think they have that 1 kit and a smaller budget than Sky who have more man power.

They do well to say theyve been in existence for about 2/3 years... apart from the clmmentary team, theyre doing well.

They may be better equipped next year.

Agree Matt, top value for money if RL's your game
