Central (West) Midlands Today
I've been scanning the list of rights coming up for auction next year, the big football package will be at the end of the year, when the UEFA Nations League 2023, Euro 2024 Qualifiers and 2026 World Cup Qualifiers will be up for auction by UEFA/FIFA.


Considering BT is one of the key sponsors of each of the Home Nations now, which I've been reminded of seeing the warm up of NIR-NED this evening on Sky Sports, A serious BT challenge for these rights really can't be dismissed.

The only thing is the sponsoring of these teams is only beneficial if they’re seen by non BT customers and BT’s relationships with the respective FAs are also almost irreverent.

You say in an earlier post, Sky are out of the cycling game so unlikely to contend for rights. But there is a similar logic to say Sky wanted those rights to remain free to air, whilst they were Team Sky sponsor. Now they’re going after brand exposure to Cycling audiences, they might not be so reluctant to take it behind a paywall. Also I believe the Tour De France rights in the states are held by sister broadcaster NBC so it, it may be something they’ll be looking at.

I think the idea that BT are suddenly going to go aggressively for everything in sight, is unlikely based on all they’ve done so far is consolidate what they’ve been doing for the last few years. Not winning the smaller rights (live Spanish, Italian football and the FA Cup) may have been them holding back for the UEFA club contract. So I think it’s the case they’re broadly happy with their offering and I don’t see anything that suggests there will be many major additions in the near future.

Simon said at the start of the show that he’s been reading comments on social media and, as a result, the safe seats are gone as people don’t like them.


The only thing I didn't like was the fact the judge used the thing to safe their own acts.

Mate if you’ve been reading the comments on social media, they’ll be the least of your concerns.

Hi brekkie thankyou 🙂

I read back through and saw a link where someone had been picked to appear on the Christmas ident which made me think they are following on in the line of first father & daughter, then mother and son it made me think is it going to be grandparents and grandchildren

Fingers crossed its not awful but with Gavin and Stacey and Miranda on over Christmas you know they will have dedicated ones.

What is this channel supposed to be? What is its USP? What programming is shown on it? Is it a cable channel? Is it a channel to fill the void on Freeview? Is it a mock ITV region from an alternate universe? What is it? The idents tell us nothing about something we know nothing about.

Might be a mock ITV region. Who knows? Wink

If the press were to follow the same rules as broadcasters, it would die and we would have nowhere near as much investigative journalism as we do now.

I’m clearly not going to persuade you but as a journalist working in broadcast media, I am wholly and undoubtedly in favour of living in a country where people and papers can say what they want freely.

Welcome to the forum. Has been quiet but I think there was a hint at what to expect (i.e. not something awful) in this thread a few weeks back.

I still think they'll hold it back myself until after the election, and that wouldn't be a bad thing IMO.
I preferred the internet when it had a sense of humour.
