Channel 4-Championship


Recommended Posts

I saw it suggested on a club Facebook page that Channel 4 could be interested in being a broadcast partner for Championship clubs.

 And indeed it was suggested it was on here somewhere but I have not yet seen it.

Now is there truth in this?

 And if there is then I personally think that they would be an ideal broadcast partner for these clubs.After all from memory I think they were the first U.K. broadcaster to give us American Football which did well viewing figures wise.So could they do something for clubs outside Super League?

 And Channel 4 DNA does tend to be very pro underdog and have often championed the underdog,sometimes yes controversially.That I think could be good for these clubs though of course it would not be controversial unlike say Frank Gallagher from that hilarious and funny as show Shameless.

 I hope it is true and I think it would help the financial future of these clubs plus of course being free to air it could give the clubs a huge boost coverage wise.

Thoughts?

Yeah why would a national broadcasters on terrestrial tv want to show a part time second division? The sensible option may be to sell SL as a package like the Premier League do with Sky, BT and Amazon

They wouldn’t want to show SL either, rugby league doesn’t fit in with channel 4’s agenda.

Rob, you've spotted an old story from 2 years ago which I posted on the Lions family page. Total RL ran a story that Channel 4 were interested in broadcasting the Championship and I just brought it to the attention of our group. The old posting has been dug up and I have pointed out on the family page that it is an old story.

 So I think the admin could close this thread.

Channel 4 !!!? They'd go for it if the winners had to bake a cake while naked. Otherwise not in their target area.

If you went to most of the clubs i've been involved with i recon 90% of the players would be up for that
