I can see BT Sport upsetting a few baseball fans this evening with their decision to put the WTA Madrid on BT Sport ESPN at 19:45, in anticipation of showing Konta v Siegemund which is yet to even start.

Fight Night Live at 2am will be the same fight that's on BoxNation, but with a studio wrap.

Apparently there was a change of plan:

Broadcaster logos on hot air balloons, anyone? Smile

Also, the YouTube stream for the UCL final will be in UHD from the BT Sport 4K channel (without the Dolby Atmos used on the broadcast version though because YouTube can't take that at the moment).

According to Twitter, the European Football Show that goes out on a Sunday night won't be returning next season.

As confirmed by one of the pundits:



At its peak, EFS was a 12-hour beast, starting sometimes before noon with a couple of games presented by Lyndsey Hipgrave, followed by James Richardson taking over for the hour's review and the match of the night - whereas this season it's been rare to have a studio wraparound on any European match. I believe there is one this Sunday evening though.

Can I use this as an excuse to post this?

One of the best punditry line up on TV, a pity to see it go (although presumably they will stay on for the Champions League goals show?)

As noted above this season they seemed to change the format so that it was only a pre-game show at Sunday teatime instead of actually covering the game of the night.
