Just got sky sports for a month - assuming sky have the rights to all NRL games why are they showing a tonne of non-live sport instead of live NRL this morning? Grr

Predictions for the future -

Crusaders RL to get a franchise for 2012 onwards -WRONG

Widnes Vikings also to get a franchise - RIGHT

Crusaders RL to do the double over Widnes and finish five places ahead of them -WRONG

Widnes Vikings NOT to dominate rugby league in years to come! STILL TO COME

I promise to pay �10 to the charity of Bomb Jacks choice if Widnes Millionaires finish above the battling underdogs Crusaders RL. I OWE A TENNER!

It appears they show just three NRL games a week. I don't have Sky Sports anyway.

WatchNRL suits me better (PC, tablet, phone viewing according to where I am) - all NRL games shown with build up, and TV shows.

Just now, DiddyDave said:

Come and live in Australia mate,all matches live on Fox except the three origin games and the GF.

Those Origin and GF games are live on Channel 9 anyway.

All matches shown on Watch NRL outside Oz and NZ (eg UK and Europe etc)

Includes Origin, finals, extra games and RL tv programmes.

Sky normally show a game on Thursday and Friday + either Saturday or Sunday

They understandably seem to be showing the Raiders a lot due to the English players.

The 3 choices for next week are excellent picks but they do seem to make some strange selections (surely they get better viewing figures on a weekend rather than a Thursday morning when a lot of people are at work??)

Sky are ###### poor.  Their website claims they're showing the Manly v Canberra game on Sunday, however, they're broadcasting MMA instead on the TV planner.

I was wondering what they were showing this week, as other than the Roosters vs St George, I couldn’t see any other games on my planner 😩

Its utter ###### - they have rights to live sport but show the umpteenth repeat instead of newy vs the eels. Idiots

Huge game next week - Souths V Broncos.  Sky normally show the Thursday game but have instead chosen 2 on Saturday including Roosters V Tigers.  With all due respect to the Tigers, that is a poor choice.

As an England fan I really hope Wayne's Souths destroy the Broncos and would have enjoyed watching it.  They do seem to make some strange choices of games.

Binning the Canberra match today (when it was still showing on their website yesterday) was ridiculous - there must have been room on one of the numerous channels at that time in the morning.

Come back Premier sports!

If I remember correctly Sky/Fox Sports are limited to showing 3 live games over here by the NRL as they want to sell their Season pass that allows you to stream all the games live. This weeks 3 games were Roosters V Dragons & Storm V Warriors on Anzac Day, Thursday, & Panthers V Souths on Friday.

Yep, download live pass and then stream it to your smart tv or through Apple TV.

in Aus, Kayo has been released. $15 a month app, show all Foxtel sports channels live and on catch up. Can stream to the tv too with high quality. Beats Foxtel hands down.

Conspiracy?

Stupidity?

Lazy journalism?

London centrism?

Take your pick

But WatchNRL shows them up and that's says it all. They strived very hard for years to be different just to look the same as all the others. It's a very predictable story.

Sky sports arena is the usual channel for RL games. Sometimes they’re on sky sports action. 

Sky sports mix is the free to air channel which often gains a higher viewing than some of the other channels purely because non subscribers can watch it. It’s useful to showcase certain games to a wider audience
