Not unexpectedly in the circumstances but Sir Geoffrey Boycott has announced today that he will not be on air for Test Match Special this summer due to his health history, age and the C-19 outbreak.





No doubt other older ex-professionals and pundits will also take temporary absence from cameras and microphones as Sport returns to broadcast.

BT Sport - Launch of BT Sport Ultimate

Incidentally, any customer being given the brush off over the no sport refunds, notably because of the bundling of sport into the BTTV products do persist, I finally broke through the wall today and have emerged £14.50 better off than I believed I was entitled to. BT_UK on Twitter were very accommodating and resolved through a series of direct messages. My account is already credited with the monies refunded too.

NOW TV

It's the introduction within the NOW TV app entertainment genre that's new, previously it was it's own standalone app. It would be interesting to see whether the availability is the same within the NOW TV app as was with the standalone product. I can't currently test this as I'm signed up to entertainment for now.

The Sport Thread

The Olympic Channel as available in the UK from various platforms frequently, or used to prior to these strange times, runs content and live competition from Olympic Sports but not necessarily featuring National Olympic committee sponsored teams or participants. It's often used to showcase the sports but not in 'Olympic Mode'. Notably these are usually new sports or candidate sports for inclusion but there have been Winter Sports events shown and around eighteen months ago focussed on Fencing and Archery. Their archive content is broad across all sports too, and also occasionally features non Olympic content as background.
