Sky start showing Thursday night matches

34 posts in this topic

Seems to be a permanent decision as well. Much prefer Mondays, and Saturday evenings before that.

Mondays is fine. I have nothing to do on a Monday night.

 

I was planning on going to this with a few guys from the rugby club, but training is on a Thursday, so that's ruled that out.

Is this because the soccer season will have started again by August?

 

Hope Premier Sports move their Thursday night game to Saturday or Monday in response.

If Premier sports move to a 6.30 Saturday KO that will be great.

Knowing Premier Sports the match will be played on the Thursday night but shown on the Saturday.

rather watch Hornets v Oldham on premier than Wolves v Widnes on Sky

It'll be a closer and more evenly matched game..... Wires won't slip up again.

Aye bless 'em. You do think they must be working on some fairly tight budgets there. Either that, or they are very unlucky with their "technical difficulties". Like watching the rugby on premier sports though.

Could this be a good thing; the stirrings of competition between broadcasters to show rugby league? :unsure:

What are sky's football plans? Saturday: 12 kick off & 5:30 kick off. Sunday: 1pm & 4pm

Can't we have the usual Friday 8pm, and a Saturday 8pm? I can honestly see Thursday night games being awfully attended.

Why not go back to 6.30 on Sunday after the soccer !

Because they have to start showing the repeats of the matches that have just finished!

Makes sense to me. What else have Sky got to show on a Thursday in August ?

6.30 after the soccer would be a cracking slot if I'm honest.

Edit* on a Sunday that is.

I think premier sports should show their games these weeks on Sunday evening, it is a good slot, they had a couple of games at the start of the season at that time.

Sky sports as far as i am aware are really pushing Monday night football with Gary nevile and Jamie redknapp

London v Leeds has just been moved from Monday 5th August to Thursday 1st August, putting it in direct competition with the Championship match on Premier Sports.

That's a bit really.

I asked PS about this, they apparantly agreed it as a one (2) off

Had the nasty thought that this is Sky showing us how we can be messed around with if they don't get the SL re-structuring that they want.

I think the fact that they needed to ask PS permission is a good sign

Surely it's much more simple than a conspiracy. Even Sky have limited outside broadcast resources and most of them will be committed to soccer at the start of the PL as they try to scupper BT's entry into the market.

 

RL is a valueless component in comparison.
