Championship on Sky

Sky own the rights to the coverage not the internet.

When does the current deal end?   I assume any new deal will be done by Elstone for SL only so as it stands the chances of a TV deal for Championship clubs is low.

Fev have a subscription online tv channel which currently only shows games delayed because they aren't allowed to stream Live because Sky own the rights......... I'd hope once the sky deal ends teams will be able the stream live games to sell to their fanbases.

I suppose it is an interesting one. What is the trade off between limited exposure and a few quid.

For example, let's say Sky offered a hundred grand each per Championship club, to own the rights but still only allow current levels of coverage, i.e. Bash, Playoffs, Grand Final and OurLeague weekly games.

Would the clubs take the £100k each, or would they want to retain the rights themselves. Let's work on the assumption that nobody else is offering owt. 

I think it would be an interesting discussion that,.

The cost (Tax included) for an adult member is $309. Do you have dispensation?

Edit: No rush on replying.

Current members who renew before October 9th get the lower rate of $269 ($135 for kids & seniors). We also got an extra day to sign up while the free jerseys were on offer (first 100 renewals only, and they got snapped up very quickly).

The point being TWP is in no mans land,yet they promote season tickets now not knowing what league they will be in.

As I said that wouldn’t happen here as people just wouldn’t buy them until they knew the outcome.

Different sporting culture....it wouldn't matter to me if they were going down to League 1...they could triple the price....I will always buy my seasons tickets and support the Pack.

I can see how it seems a bit strange that the pricing is set before we know where we're playing. From our perspective, the value is excellent either way. We will all be terribly disappointed if we don't earn promotion, but if that happens we will pick ourselves back up again and carry on. I don't think many are waiting to see before renewing.

Totally agree with this and Kayakman's comments. Doesn't matter which league we will be there . Bonus if SL but if not it won't stop us turning up to Lamport . Season tickets are well priced for whichever league we are in.

Bradford have been selling season tickets and haven't yet signed an agreement for a ground. No ground, no RL.

Looks like approx. 325 Canadian Dollars for Standing. 

Not bad...not bad.   A good seat for a Raptors game (1 game) is 300-400, Leafs are probably something the same.

$300-$400 for a season ticket in any sport over here is considered to be a steal....a real deal.

For information I was buying the magazine in Manchester in 1965. Should have kept a copy!

325 - 390 I think 13 home games for that. Then they gave discount on CC and 1895 Cup.

And ?

Bundle them up with SL and either sell them to Sky for a sky sports rugby league channel or bundle them up with the SL content that isn't of Sky and sell them through a streaming platform.

The last thing the lower tiers would do is bundle anything up with SL. SL have truly burned their bridges now.

Live with it Scotch. The Lower tiers are going places, whilst the product is left withering away..

Sky could probably do a "Rugby" channel and include League on that, if, and only if, there were no Union games being played. What would they show during our off-season? Wall-to-wall Union, on-season? Wall-to-wall Union with a Thursday & Friday game of League.

Why would they show wall to all Union if they own all the league content? 

There is comfortably enough live content available, there is a tonne of secondary content we could largely steal from the NRL, a few of ours and you have a good, full, RL channel. 

If we don't we will continue to get bounced around and lose viewers as the landscape atomises. The question isn't really would this have value, or even would it pay for itself. Its whether the game (and by that I mean all levels) would be prepared to do the things they need to do to create a compelling product. 

Though this is a game where a sizable minority have the ridiculous idea that the 2nd tier and 1st tier are going to swap places if only they will it hard enough among other strange self-sabotaging principles, so we don't really seem capable of doing anything remotely ambitious for any reason. 

An 'RL Package' whether as a Sky Sports channel, its own channel or a streaming option that could be grafted on to other OTP platforms, could very easily have (with 14 teams is SL, adding Toulouse and Toronto to SL and Ottawa in a 14 team championship) 

Thursday Morning NRL, Thursday evening SL, Friday morning 2 NRL games, 1 SL game, Saturday 3 NRL games finishing at 1pm, then CHampionship game, SL France away, SL France home, SL Canada home or away at 8pm. Sunday 2 NRL games, 2 SL games, Ottawa Home games from the championship. Monday Championship game. Around 18 games a week. 

Then you can have league cup games Tuesday Wednesday, maybe some L1 games and championship games on CC weekends, highlights packages, etc etc.
