Super League Show

Recommended Posts

Now that Toronto has made ‘The Biggest Signing in the History of the Universe’ etc, could the BBC please, please, please broadcast/be allowed to broadcast nationally the Super League Show when people aren’t in bed or at work so we can maximise the exposure on terrestrial television?

I asked the BBC chief about it just before and he said 'No.'

With that sorted, I think it's time to put this thread to bed.

Just before what?!

Is it not available to all on BBC iplayer? Doesn't really matter what time it’s on...you can watch it whenever you want. 

Oh. Why doesn’t the BBC show Match of the Day on BBC2 on Tuesday lunchtime, then?

Tradition? Football isn’t a fair comparison really, with its popularity and money. 

SL show is available, I’m sure people will find it if they want to see Sonny Bill. Maybe it could be advertised a bit more though.

Of course it matters. The floating viewer isn't going to magically come across it and start watching it on the iplayer.

10:30pm on a Saturday night is hardly prime time, but I do get the point. Sunday lunchtime would be good like they do during the SL play-offs but obviously not all of the games have finished by then. Maybe a Monday evening on BBC2

The Womens Football Show is shown on BBC Four and BBC One nationwide, the NFL show is shown across the UK despite no NFL team playing here. 😀

Just excuses from them. (Let's be honest though, the show isn't that good anyway.)

Is this a Beeb thing?

If not, maybe we should be looking to the channel that shows it to broadcast a SL Magazine show.   There’s enough fans out there to justify it.   Only problem is that the commercial department would follow the government advice and target ‘Workington Man’ during ad breaks.   Basically two minutes of Cheesy-Peas commercials done with an over-elaborate Northern accent voiceover.

The SLS could scarcely be more ‘bare minimum’. 

It should absolutely be better, with better pundits, better analysis and better commentary. We’re jizzing away terrestrial coverage of our flagship comp.

If you think they record on Monday, so have had days to actually analyse the Thursday game, let along anything else. Same old names saying nothing every week.

Quite. Current players who won’t say anything critical of fellow pros - yawn! - and Iestyn ‘Mogadon’ Harris.

If your going to target Workington man you need to advertise Chees XL crisps & cheap weekends in the Big City ( Carlisle) 👍🏽

It’s 2019, people choose what to watch and when to watch it.

You think people are flicking around the channels after Strictly looking for things to watch? They’ve got Netflix and stuff piled up on record. 

SL show is where it is because nobody was watching it when it was on earlier.

Even in 2019 people need to be aware of something to wish to download and record it. Super League on iPlayer only preaches to the converted.

And yes the majority of people do still flick through channels looking for something to watch.

Which is why it needs advertising, marketing, investment etc...not just a change in tv slot. Obviously, you can apply that to all of RL, not just the SL show. 

Well if the majority are still (wasting their lives) channel hopping, it’s changing rapidly...especially in younger people, which surely has to be the target market for a sport to grow and thrive.

That's incorrect. Millions of people are discriminating in what they watch so don't have or need Netflix. In any case, how do people know what is on so they can choose? The BBC real-time channels are stuffed with adverts for their own shows. They wouldn't do that if it doesn't work, would they. So advertise the Superleague show in a way that attracts sports minded viewers, not just RL minded viewers. Put it on nationwide, at a sensible time.

Don't want to be cruel, but I must point out if Yorkshire, Lancashire and Cumbria broke away to form a republic, call it, Yorlancbria, the national sport of said nation would not be RL, but football. Does that answer the question of why the beeb show isn't nationwide. The media, i.e. TV, Papers , Netflix Amazon or whoever don't owe RL anything. It's up to RL to create a nationwide product FIRST then tv or whoever will want it. Broadcasters don't deliberately put shows at times to get less viewers, if it warrants nationwide attention it'll get it, but it isn't the BBC 's business to create that interest, that is RFL's domain, and they're not exactly very good at it!!

When was it on earlier?? It's never been shown nationwide, so there is no barometer for the level of interest it may generate.

Nope, us Yorkshire people would be extremely benevolent in accommodating aforementioned smaller areas and letting them be called YORKSHIRE as well! 👍

Indeed, I bet more people watch 'Shed and Buried'.
