Are they not paying anything for the rights then?

Bein never paid for the rights, it cost the catalans for bein to film the games 

I think you can watch on l'équipe TV on the net unless it's crypted outside of France

I recall reports about the failed negotiations earlier in the year stating that BeIN paid 70,000 € per year for those rights.

At the beginning the catalans paid, then they did it for free, then bein gave money, the reason Bernard didn't renew was because bein wouldn't give any more  money and asked the catalans to pay production costs  again I think

It was reported that they were willing to renew for the same money they paid before, but Robert Elstone wanted them to pay more and they refused.

In the paper today, 2 live games and two delayed live games in August,it also says sky may pay for a few games to be filmed in perpignan, 

L'équipe will be fitting rl in around champions league discussions and commentary. Looks like super league will just be a time filler at first, let's hope it gets good viewing figures then l'équipe might get a little more excited about super league.

It will be the first time ever I think on free to air for the Dragons in France. Just hope that the popular L'Equipe daily Sports paper does some colour pieces in the lead up.

Pfff, it didn't take a genius to work out though. That was an epic fail there's no getting away from it

Back in 2003/4/5 it was around 30/35000 per match to cover on Sports + 

French TV has always (Since Pathe Sport) charged the FRL the costs to screen matches on TV (Bein Sport was the first instance for years of a broadcaster covering costs)

Being the Head Honcho he really should know. When entering such key negotiations he should be fully informed of everything that is relevant.

Being on FTA is really big when you put it like that.

Well , he ought to bloody know if he is any sort of professional and if he didn`t know he bloody-well ought to have found out.

If true , mind-boggling.

L'Equipe have a very large broadcasting audience so Catalan need to maximise this opportunity

The RLF should be throwing everything at  this.

My sister works for the Gov`t over here and it is her job to write articles for the media on behalf of the Gov`t. She writes about the environment, half of it is pure spin. Feelgood nonsense.

The media loves it, they take the story ,change it around a bit and put one of their journalists name on it and the Gov`t  get to influence the agenda. Newspapers, radio, television and online news outlets.

The RLF should be providing L`Equipe with this sort of content. Proud history of the game in France, survive against the odds, etc. etc. They have a great Aussie character in James Maloney, eloquent, genuinely funny and a lovely  family, 4 kids learning to speak French attending local schools. Without trying to be too mercenary find a link between one of his forebears and one of the French players forebears and the Wars and you`ve got `Brothers -in arms` line.

When an opportunity like this arises you have to go in hard. For a small investment the return could be substantial.

You have to capture the general publics imagination.

It is excellent news.  Back up goes the French aerial.

I appreciate the light-hearted nature of your comment, Lowdesert, but to be serious for a moment; am I right in thinking that Sky will show these four games?  Bernard Guasch's 'thank you' comment to Sky suggests they are actively involved in this four-match coverage on FTA in France.

Sky are showing every game live in August.
