Re: Are Sky One Offering Selective PL Live Matches ?

At the moment Digiguide have Gillette Soccer Saturday in the 3-6pm slot on the 12th on Sky1. That of course has to change with next to nothing for them to talk about that day Smiley LOL

 

IF Sky One is to get a play-off game in that timeslot then it would be the 1st League 2 semi-final which kicks off at 3pm. The other play-off games on that date kick off at 12.30pm, 5.15pm, and 7.30pm

Re: Are Sky One Offering Selective PL Live Matches ?

Hi @starman73

 

Like you said it could be possibly the Champions Cup Rugby final, where last years final was shown on Sky One and if my memory serves me right it was also on the BT Freeview channel.

 

I hope so, because i ditched BT Broadband last month and hoping to watch the final on either the BT Freeview HD Showcase channel (my first preferred option) or Sky One on my NowTV entertainment pass (my second option).

 

Otherwise i might have to bite the bullet and buy a nowtv day sports pass for the Rugby match.

It won't be through BT Showcase as it closes for good today. BT are now using their sports app and their website to show 'free' content.

So no Europa League or Champions League final on Freeview!  Outrageous.  I hate the lack of access to BT Sport.  I would ditch Virgin Media cable in a heartbeat if I could get BT Sport without having to have BT broadband.   Just another 9 months or so until it hopefully joins Now TV.

I just applied my last day pass voucher to my account as it expires at the end of May.  As I have BT Sport, Sky One and Sky Sports Mix on Virgin, not sure I will need it until August as they seem to have most of what I want to watch covered for the next few weeks and there will be plenty of football elsewhere thia summer.

Hi @starman73

 

Hopefully, like last year the Champions Cup Rugby Final will be shown on Sky One (will keep an eye out on the Sky TV guide when we get closer to the date to see if it's going to be available on Sky One).

 

I don't follow either of the two teams in the final, so if it's not on Sky One, i might wait until the Highlight's are on in the evening on S4C where they should also show the Highlights of the Cardiff v Gloucester match as well).

It will be the last I see of Leinster and Munster on Sky with Pro 14 moving to Premier Sports and Champions Cup moving to BT Sport.  Not sure what the viewing figures are but I would have thought having the Pro 14 clubs paticularly the Welsh, Irish and Scots would have been a big draw.   Sky only have the internationals outside six nations and world cup now.     Not sure what Action and Arena will be showing next September.

Hi @starman73

 

Premier Sports who have the broadcasting rights for the Pro 14 next year did say that they will show one live match each week on their sister channel Free Sports on Freeview.

 

Edit ~ Also i am sure that I read somewhere that either Channel 4 or Channel 5 have agreed with the ERC that one Champions Cup Rugby match will also be aired live during the pool and quarter finals stages next year (where i believe BT Sports have the rights exclusively to both semi finals and final)

 

Not sure about the Challenge Rugby Cup, will need too google it to find the answer.

I guess like BT Showcase they will show the games that don't attract subscribers, so plenty of Benetton and Zebre along with Cheetahs and the Southern Kings.  DoubtLeinster and Munster will figure too much.   Freesports has been pretty frustrating for me.  They were supposed to show GAA but apparently they didn't have the rights, so games that were on the EPG were replaced with no notice.  And since they messed around with the Crystal Palace transmitter I only get it on one TV.

Rugby rights are a bit of a mess.  Never entirely sure where a game will be on.  Channel 5 are due to show five games a season from the Aviva, but this season broadcast most of them in April.
