A fan at the ground commented that the Satellite link up truck hadn't arrived.

 

Poor show.

 

it went to DONNY osmand concert by mistake


the inside of a 3star halex table tennis ball smells much like you'd expect it to.

Yes, quite right. This is, in fact, great news for RL coverage. Worldwide. -_-

 

 

Did I say it was? Just trying to keep some perspective here...

Me too.

 

It's a poor show, not the end of the world. If they come up with 'circumstances beynd our control' for not screening a world cup game, let's see the reaction.

It was however to be aired as free to view on Sky's platform, they instead showed SW Scorpians v NW Crusaders from Easter weekend instead.

It's a company called Televideo that do the game for Premier Sports same as IMG will do the World Cup. Methinks the Televideo Satellite truck driver will get it in the neck from his employers. At least the game was recorded.


About time I updated this.

So he should!  Televideo will have a contract with Premier Sports and they have managed to embarrass Premier Sports on the day following the world cup announcement.

They are responsible for delivering their schedule. They can't just blame someone else without explanation. Still, now I can watch real rugby, not the prima Donna Superleague wannabees of Fev.

Then that's your loss! We have a channel that shows 9 RL games every week and are planning to increase that output by showing classic NRL Finals and State of Origin games and you won't subscribe because a driver got lost on the way to Donny.

I don't subscribe to premier cos it's on the sky platform, otherwise I probably would have done.

But from what I've seen of it on streaming, it does appear an amateurish production and the commentary crew is not the best I've ever heard. Last night's cock up isn't a great advert for their subscription to be honest but I suppose they do broadcast and appear committed to RL and any exposure is better than no exposure.

Not good at all last night but PS is fantastic value for money if you're a RL fan. The more that subscribe the better it will become. Dave Woods and his team are far better than the Sky mob in my opinion.

I will subscribe to premier sports the minute promotion and relegation to SL is announced.

I can cope without HD but not meaningless games. P&R will bring a whole new dimension to games on premier. Remember that prem sports did not have RL before it was ditched

Do most pubs have premier sports btw?

I still love Sky - I like the fact that they are always at the forefront of technology - they brought us games in HD and 3D first. They delivered the video ref via big screens first (remember the BBC red and green light thingy?). They give us a hell of a lot of coverage throughout the year, including adverts in prime time shows on their biggest channels (Sky 1 and Movies as well as sports and Sky News), coverage on SSN, and generally treat us like a serious sport - let's not forget how the BBC used to treat us, and still do in certain respects.

 

That said, Premier is excellent coverage, and in the past we have talked about things like a RL channel - if they did grow to the point where they could pay large fees for SL then we could truly have a RL channel in all but name.

 

What shouldn't be sniffed at though is that the amount of coverage on TV (Terrestrial and Pay) is astounding these days.

 

We have:

2 SL games per week

1 Championship game per week

8 NRL games per week

Approx 8-10 Challenge Cup games a year

Live State of Origin

Live Anzac Test

Full international coverage (28 live games in this years WC)

Weekly Tries Show

Weekly SL Chat show

Weekly magazine show
Weekly Superstars show (really enjoyed the Ben Westwood one last night btw)

Weekly BBC magazine show

 

Personally I'm delighted that we have 3 broadcasters that want to show our game, and in general treat it with respect.
