Premier Sports ads at WCC matches blocked

18 February 2015 - 06:28 PM

According to a tweet by Premier Sports today the RFL and Sky have both blocked Premier Sports from advertising their NRL coverage on the LED boards at the World Club Challenge matches this weekend. I don't know whether they'll be able to have space on ordinary boards but the LEDs are the most effective not least because they are located opposite the TV cameras and are, well, LED boards so very noticeable.


I really think that is sad: sad because PS have given us rugby league fans some cracking coverage since they got back involved and sad in a pathetic sense.  How pathetic of the RFL in particular to be so weak that they cannot even allow a broadcast partner - they still have the international rights - to advertise rugby league coverage.


Here's the tweet from Premier Sports:
