Either that or Super League you'd hope

To me, it looks like it will remain Sky Sports Arena but with a hashtag of #RugbyLeagueTakeover in use and probably up on screen.

I think it's pretty straight forward to change the name of the channel - if memory serves we did it for the Masters? I'll try and find out from some of the devs/content curators I know on Q.

Yes, I don't think it's hard but it's also not referred to in the story which only says that Sky Sports Arena will have a #RugbyLeagueTakeover

Although, again, I'm not sure administrators should be the ones who get the hour-long interviews, at least Pearson was engaging and interesting here.

We're negotiating at the minute to get some terrestrial games with the BBC for 2022, ten fixtures... alongside Sky...

Thanks for sharing that, So the plan seems to be private equity + Sky deal + terrestrial coverage via the BBC = growth.

Now might not be a bad time to be negotiating given Sky's biggest property could potentially lose it's biggest names.

Guaranteed viewers for a relative pittance isn't something you'd want to be losing right now if you were Sky.

I was born to run a club like this. Number 1, I do not spook easily, and those who think I do, are wasting their time, with their surprise attacks.

It's also clear from watching today's activity that Sky thrive on promotion and relegation - and so do journalists. 

Nice selling point for the game. 

"Family Game" / "Community Game" - Sure Sky Sports & The RFL will be singing from the same hymn sheet.

Rugby League prides itself on being a family game which is inclusive, uncompromising and passionate, and the principles of RESPECT, set out the obligations on all participants to maintain the game's high standards.
