2 Year TV Deal

It maybe that the RFL have asked for production services, and that has taken a chunk of cash of the rights

You could be right - but then this surely bumps up the price quite a bit for any other broadcasters to purchase and as I mentioned before, it would be groundbreaking if this happens, as nobody is currently doing that.

On FTA yes alot of people watch youtube but problem with youtube is the huge amounts of content. 

BBC or Channel 5 for me.  I'd like to see us build New FTA relationships with company that also needs to make money so Channel 5 is prob preference but would take either right now.

It seems quite explicit that the free to air games will still be on SKY platforms so maybe Sky mix or red buttons or online. So I'm not sure why people are getting excited about C4 or C5 showing live games.

BBC are going to be showing up to ten Super League games.

If Sky is going to have cameras at every game, then arguably they may actually broadcast more than just the 66 games listed in the Press Release.

The wording very specifically states that those 66 will be 'exclusive' to Sky, but potentially those extra '20' up for re-sale, may also be simulcasted on Sky and BBC / Our League / etc.

That said, that still leaves another 90 odd games which unless OurLeague can take, would be a bit weird for Sky to film, unless the plan is to sell that extra content to Fox League and Sky in NZ.

Can I get a link or source to this?

I've just had a look, I can only see a Yorkshire Post article. So it has not been officially confirmed by anyone.

So I'm still a little confused because nowhere in the press release does it say games will go on terrestrial tele. Only that games will be on FTA Sky platforms.

Guess I've got higher standards than you, sorry! 

I'm not saying chuck OuRLeague in the bin but if Super League is going down the Watch NRL road, it needs to be more user-friendly to watch on a TV. 

i would guess they know that to be honest.. they now have a year to get it there with the help of both Sky and Iquoniq (or however its spelt).. i wouldnt be surpised to see some massive changes.. lets remember this time last year they were'nt expecting to have to put 2-3 streams through it a week and they have got it to this point on limited resources.

It says 66 will be broadcast on Sky sports the rest will be shown on other free to air Sky platforms.

It hasn't been officially confirmed but, as said elsewhere, the Yorkshire Post is about as small-c conservative as can be imagined and tends not to really be in a hurry for scoops. If it's writing that there are moves for the BBC to have 10 live games per year then I think it's fair to assume that those discussions are at a fairly advanced stage - even if nothing comes of it ultimately.

Dave Woods on the BBC website says there is no news on the broadcast package of 10 Superleague games, so if its with the BBC he doesn't know about it

True but the BBC coverage rarely if ever breaks news. It reports what's already out there (e.g. from the press release).

If the BBC has ten live Super League games then I’m surprised they’re not shouting it from the rooftops.

 

That wouldn't form part of a Sky/SLE announcement to be fair.

Yes, and I would imagine Sky would insist on their announcement first, given they are the principle - if not exclusive - broadcast partner.  Hopefully we hear more in the coming weeks.

Nothing to stop the BBC from publicising their slice of the pie on their own platforms if it’s true.

 

It may not be confirmed and/or Super League may rather have announcements about separate deals made separately.
