Hope its not true, but knowing our luck it will be true, our gate will be reduced by about 600/800, Premier Sports know they will get a good entertaining game, but at the club's loss.

Unfortunately Sky are putting the screws on PS (despite saying that they aren't serious competition) by screening SL on Thursday nights so PS have had to find an alternative night to screen our games. Whilst this doesn't help the clubs involved in each game I understand that the clubs are sympathetic to PS's plight and would still rather have TV exposure in this way than none at all.

 

Don't blame PS, and our luck is no worse than any other clubs AR, unless you choose to believe that "they're all against us".

But then sky will move the Thursday night game to Monday once the premier league finishes?

Why can't premier just show ours Sunday afternoon, and change nothing?

 

 

I guess that they have other programmes already scheduled for Sunday afternoons.

When does the PS deal finish? With the new structure in 2015 does that mean a poss move back to sky for championship either then or in 2016.

Anyone know?

Think the deal for the championship ends with Premier Sports at the end if the 2014 season.Got no idea what will happen in 2015 with the tv deal.Think Sky has Super league until 2016, got a feeling BT Sports might make a bid for the rights to it after that.

Sky ditched the Championship and stated that they had no future interest in it. there is also news coming out of the RFL that there will be competitive bids for all of British RL from the end of their current contract which runs to the end of 2016.

 

I don't really understand the negativity regarding Premier Sports. I thought that they did a great job of the RLWC with a lively approach and excellent commentators. I am only now catching up with their programming from last season's Championship and that was a refreshing change from Sky's. In fact I have now ditched Sky Sports which means a considerable saving, losing out on SL and gaining the NRL and SoO. I regard that as a great bargain.

Sky sports are pretty poor these days - not only have they axed the championship, but they have lost the big - ahem - rugby union matches too. Superleague is crp, I don't watch football at all (apart from the internationals), and snowboarding, golf, tennis, bog snorkelling and international knur and spell don't float my boat - which just leaves my beloved cricket - and I'm losing interest in that at the moment.

seems to me most of my sky sports subscription is lining the pockets of the premiership, which to be honest sticks in my craw. Problem for me though, is that my broadband and phone services are with sky, and I do watch some of their drama programs and documentaries, so I am loathe to make the break. I might ditch sky sports, but given the parcel passing game that seems to be the lot of RL with regard to broadcasting, I can't be bothered to change provider.

from Fev official site...

The club has received a number of phone calls today regarding our fixture at Dewsbury Rams on Sunday 16th February and the possibility of the fixture being changed for TV coverage. The club has not been notified of any amendment by The RFL. As always, we will communicate any fixture amendments through the usual channels as soon as we are informed.

Apparently Premier Sports have said that the first tranche of televised games will be announced next week together with the days on which they will be played. At the moment options seem to be split between Mondays and Tuesdays.

But not Monday..or Tuesday nights? Or are we merely a 'filler' for them?

 

And it's not as if they haven't known for months that Sky were going to be showing games on Thursdays.

They say that they have been consulting with stakeholders during this period.

 

Let's get this straight though - Sky are being the dog-in-the-manger here; Premier would have much preferred to continue with Thursday games but Sky have decided that they want to broadcast soccer on nights when they previously featured SL, so chose to switch to Thursdays ti spite the Premier broadcasts. This is Sky who unceremoniously dumped Championship RL remember, so lets' cut Premier a bit of slack here can't we? After all the alternative is to have no Championship RL on the TV at all.

So where's the Thursday night RL games going to move too if sky put soccer on instead??

Can't see what premier didn't have Thursday's and sky had Friday's Saturday, Sundays , Mondays

We know sky are greed barstewards

Super league Thursday night is stupid and super league Monday night's is stupid

Premier choosing between Monday or Tuesday?? What's that c.rap all about

Our players are part time and will have been working... I'm sure they will me impressed.

I personally don't want us to be on tv v fev! Lost a good 500 off the crowd last season playing on a Sunday night . Our club get no money for it been on premier so to lose gate money on top of this seems not right. Be better playing Sunday afternoons if you ask me and not changing a thing if they want to show it on premier
