  1. .pdf here, interesting reading https://www.researchgate.net/publication/299740204_Staring_into_the_abyss_The_state_of_UK_rugby's_Super_League
  2. It was part of the deal Super League did with $ky They insisted on traditional names being junked, Hull KR would have been called Robins rather than Rovers. The two other leagues didn't have to, but to try and cash in some did, to no effect whatsoever
  3. LW have announced this week's edition 23rd March, will be the last until the matches resume again
  4. The Evening Standard's circulation is around 800,000 and you can download an app for Android to read the full edition for free after about 1500 every day
  5. I certainly wouldn't park round there Anfield is an absolute dump in that area far better to go to Southport and get the train to Kirkdale and walk from there
  6. To be fair futtocks you're right, sports ones usually are - but the bog standard ones like CBS, RTE, ABC and channel 9 are usually ok due to the fact every man and his dog use the well known sports ones and the streaming can't cope but the ordinary fta stuff is ok
  7. Look at "doc squiffy" channel on YouTube for details App is available on Google play store too for updates too "Doc squiffy kodi and entertainment" Plenty there for exploring ! Including "swift streams" and "mobdro"
  8. On my unofficial android app the Australian channels available on my tablet are .. Fox Sports News Channel 7 Channel 9 quality is good with no buffering at the moment.
  9. An easy method with an Android phone is to use a Chromecast device (£30) This casts whats on your phone via your wifi router to your TV via your HDMI socket. These are very popluar and are used for unofficial streaming as well. The other way is to buy an Android box for about £50 - these use a HDMI connection to stream any content to your TV
  10. The AFL site also give their prices in sterling ... £125 a season £22 a month £13 a week A shame Channel 9 isn't on unofficial streaming - though Channel 7 is
  11. It's all to do with demographics .... ITV's audience at that time is made of of mainly female C2/D/E's (that's what "This Morning" is aimed at.) BBC1 caters for ABC1 (mainly middle class, middle Englanders) - who are loath to change (think Radio 4 listeners who moan at the slightest change to a format or scheduling) BBC2 has nothing to show at that time other than the Victoria Derbyshire "Radio 5 Dead" link up filler, (it's that or a PM5544 test card !). The BBC will not admit this - but that's why they've done it
  12. This is out today ..... http://m.nrl.com/landmark-international-rights-deal-with-fox-sports/tabid/10874/newsid/113968/default.aspx So it looks like Premier/Freesports have lost their coverage, with subscription streaming replacing it. Don't think it will be all that cheap either - the equlivelent sub for Australian Rules Football is £125 a season, so I think the NRL will be something near it.
  13. Was two interesting calls on Radio Manchesters RL programme last night. Seemingly a Salford fan had been talking to MK yesterday outside the ground and said two consortia had offered him 1.5 million for the club to move Salford lock stock and barrel to another city - but refused to do so. The caller also said in the talk he had with the doctor that he wasn't interested in bankrolling another club either. I don't know if the caller was a joker or not. Another fan also rang in and said half the fans won't go while MK is there, Again though, it could be a load of old book
  14. You are quite right, it is Figures have gone up to 325,000 (more in most cases than Sky's film channels) Considering it started off with 15,000 it's done very well It's running the popular ABC series, "The Human Jungle" from 1963 as from next month. (this weekend ITV station for the whole of the north and midlands used to carry a live 2nd half of a RL match on a Saturday afternoon at that time too !) I'm sure Freesports have seen this - there's a lot of people who have cancelled Sky, and use their Sky box for the FTA stuff.
  15.
