These were in use quite a lot in recent weeks advising of rain delays in some of the tennis tournaments while highlights were being shown. Who'd have thought it could rain so much in Doha and Qatar?
Were they? Don't remember seeing them. Seems to be a bit hit and miss. There's still a lot more BT Sport could do to help the viewers.
Last night with the Bundesliga being really hard to find due to the late schedule change (which was not reflected on Virgin Media EPG
) and the red button function to get to it being on a different channel to what it was originally on, there was nothing at all broadcast to help viewers find it.
Linking it with the Serie A coverage on BT Sport 3 kind of makes sense initially but the best solution would have been to make the red button available on BT Sport 2 AND 3, with the multiscreen options being WTA, Serie A and Bundesliga so people can switch between them no matter which channel they accessed it from.
Sky Sports seem to be very good at informing viewers of channel changes and delays, I remember when Manchester United v Bournemouth was cancelled last year due to the bomb scare, there was a graphic on screen permanently during the buildup while they simulcast another match from one of their other channels.
