65 posts in this topic

The haven v Dewsbury game will now be shown at 10pm tomorrow night...........

Delayed to make way for the UEFA cup tie versus Linfield and Xanthi

 

I subscribed to watch live Rl, especially  Championship games,The NRL was a bonus for me.

 

now that they are delaying games and sky are going against them it is not worth having.

Complain directly to them.  If you're on Twitter then they are at @PremierSportsTV.  I think they have a Facebook page as well but I don't go on Facebook so I don't know.

 

It is a shame that they have followed the trend by delaying rugby league for soccer.  I hope this isn't a sign of things to come.

Yeah because £10 a month for 4/5 championship games and 30-40 NRL is taking the ######. I can understand you complaining that they are not respecting this particular game but if your a RL fan you can't say its not value for money.

I agree,it's definatley good value for money.This is only the second cock up this season i think the other one was a Whitehaven game as well which was delayed due to technical problems but showed on the Saturday.

Life ain't to bad is it,NRL and Championship on Premier sports and Super league on Sky.

It is actually poor and i hope its not a view of the future.

Imagine if Sky were doing this for a SL game.

Sky have more sports channels so they wouldn't have to.Still don't think it's to bigger deal moving one game.

I see this game is marked as free view now.

yes, freeview that subscribers still have to pay for!

 

listen to me guys i like what prem sports are doing with rugby league, they are showing loads of games, champ , NRL and the world cup, and it is good value for money but i rarely see NRL games as im usualy to hungover haha and if i record it i will already know the score so they will be no point in watching it.

 

im more of a championship guy anyways!

 

 

 

its just frustrating that they cant do what they say they are going to do.

 

there has been to many cockups from prem sport this season and this one just takes the biscuit, i mean they have even got a chanel called premier sports EXTRA.........

Use it!

The point is they are the only channel out there with any interest in showing the championship and the actually do a good job of it. The presentation for me on championship games is far better than sky's much more expensive effort on SL.

Why?

Because for many Sky are the devil and get ripped even if they move a game a few hours to show it live.

 

Many fans would love us to move to Premier or BT due to the disdain Sky apparently shows for the sport.

i dont have any problem with the presentation/commentary side of prem sports, and i agree its a whole lot better than  sky's equivalent.

 

but would sky have delayed/cancelled lets say hull v cas to show wigan athletic v i dont know, whoever they get in Europe?

 

nope they would not.

 

prem sports have 2 channels on sky surely they should use them?

Anyone who is interested in the Linfield game will be at Windsor Park tomorrow night. It would be a great achievement for the Blues to progress (and I'd love to see Standard Liège coming here) but it should be on BBC TV. I can't see how anyone would subscribe to Premier Sports over here just to see a couple of Linfield games (if it isn't to be a one-off).

The game was moved from Sunday to Thursday on the pretence that it was going to be shown live in the usual Championship RL slot. Rams fans have changed arrangements for to get to Cumbria for the Thursday game only now to find that the game isn't being transmitted live and therefore question if it was necessary for the change.

It shows that Premier Sports don't think much of Championship RL if they place a soccer match between Linfield and Xanthi (Greece) before one of our games. Why don't they transmit the soccer match later that evening?

If Davy Jeffrey starts on one of his famous monologues you'll be lucky if they start the delayed transmission at 10! Not a Championship fan nor a Premier Sports subscriber but I do feel for the fans affected. This really does take the biscuit.

with the move to Thursday nights and the extension of Monday Nights for Sky i would suspect it is with one eye towards the play-offs given the first week has four games and Thursday and Monday in addition to the usual Friday and Saturday would mean the four games being played over four nights with one game being played each night here is a example based on the current SL table if it finished like it is as present

Thursday Catalan Dragons v Hull FC (Unhappy Hull FC fans having to take the day off work or school/college to watch their team in France)

Friday Hull KR v St Helens

Saturday Huddersfield Giants v Leeds Rhinos 

Monday Wigan Warriors v Warrington Wolves

the latter 2 both qualifiers winners have week off Saturday or Monday dependent on stadium priority given the two home clubs share with soccer clubs and soccer with Huddersfield Town and Wigan Athletic would have priority on the stadiums in early September

prem sports have 2 channels on sky surely they should use them?

Just to be clear, they have two EPG slots, they only have bandwidth for one channel.

It is like how CBBC and BBC Three (or CBeebies and BBC Four) have separate EPG listings, but really share the same bandwidth.

There is no bandwidth for Premier Sports Extra, but because there has to be a minimum amount of content broadcast to remain on the EPG, at certain times they will show programmes on channel 430 but blank out the main Premier Sports slot on channel 428. It is the same channel just switching between numbers you see it on.

The only time I can recall them ever using both at the same time was last year when the replay of the All-Ireland Senior Hurling Championship Final clashed with the Championships Grand Final Day. But as the rugby was to air in Ireland on Setanta Sports 1 they simply shared that feed in Great Britain as Setanta Sports Extra.

That is no longer an option as the Setanta Sports 1 feed was closed last month. Irish viewers now receive the same Premier Sports feed as GB, with programmes blacked out in the UK or Ireland as appropriate. So there is no longer any bandwidth to enable them to broadcast on two channels simultaneously. I also believe the Premier Sports Extra EPG slot has been sold anyway and will shortly disappear.

Total speculation, but with shutting down a channel and selling an EPG slot they had been holding onto, maybe they are needing to make cuts to survive? If so it could be a case of miss one match in favour of a more lucrative football one, or lose everything?

Get over yourself, man. The Europa League in soccer is way bigger than Championship rugby league. You guys find a way to complain about everything.

Is that gospel because here in Hull the team that is furthest into their season has priority.
