The Sport Thread

Strange graphics on the Cliftonville v Glentoran match from Northern Ireland on Sky Sports this evening.

Did the previous time Sky showed NI domestic games use their own graphics or these ones? Could the matches be produced by the league themselves rather than Sky?

ITV Box Office

Seems Pougatch made his way over for the main event at least - guess someone else hosted the undercard. He's proving to have been a smart and versatile signing for ITV.



I didn't see the coverage from the start but after the Kid Galahad v Joseph Agbeko when I saw a bit of it, Pougatch was presenting.

ITV Box Office

I know nothing about boxing, but the match was just plugged on ITV News at around 10:45. What were ITV Box Office showing, as that screenshot was posted two hours earlier?


There are a couple of other fights on the undercard before the main Eubank fight. The main fight itself is just starting now but ITV Box Office coverage including the other fights started at 7pm.

Digital Spy

What's scary is next week it will be 16 years to the day since I first signed up to DS... which is more than half of my life. Of course the site's changed dramatically (and gone badly downhill) in that time.

In fact when I first joined, Digitalspy was just the forums, the news was a separate site called Diginews. It didn't all come until the Digitalspy name until some point in 2001.


Just checked my join date 04-03-2000, so 17 years next month, also more than half my life!

Sky / Discovery Dispute

Guys, just an update. According to a DS user, a Sky feed has appeared with a message about Discovery no longer being available.

4461 11.836 H 27.5 5/6 DVB-S OPSK now showing a caption saying "Unfortunately Sky is not able to bring you this channel as the broadcaster has withdrawn it from the Sky platform".

It's definitely there . . .



FTA which is nice of them Laughing

Sky / Discovery Dispute

Sky Broadband have blocked www.keepdiscovery.co.uk ..... They really want to stop Sky subscribers complaining!


Not able to confirm this is happening myself, as I'm at work, but surely that's not legal?

Another poster on Digital Spy has said this isn't correct - access isn't blocked.


I can access it at work but not on my home PC (via TeamViewer). From home:

BT Sport - European football and 4K

Don't think it's been mentioned here yet that BT Sport's cricket coverage starts in the early hours of Thursday morning with Australia v South Africa. It's going be Channel 7's match coverage, with studio presentation by Greg James, and punditry by Michael Vaughan, Graeme Swann, Kevin Pietersen and Ricky Ponting. More details.



Channel 9 not 7. But yes it will be interesting to see, sounds like they are making more effort than Sky have with their non-England cricket coverage over the past 2 years.

Channel 4 the new home of FTA Formula 1.


Yes. Was mentioned earlier in the thread that the core C4 commentary team would provide the world feed commentary for all races, unlike the BBC situation where the radio commentary team was apparently used when the BBC weren't live on the TV. (Presumably because C4 don't have a radio team to fall back on)

Races at least (including those not shown live by the BBC) were definitely Ben Edwards and David Coulthard.


Ah - earlier in the thread others were stating that BBC Radio commentary was used on the races that the BBC TV rights were highlights-only for. This may well have been wrong.


I think the poster meant that for practice sessions BBC Radio commentary was used. For qualifying and race the TV commentary team was used.
