Sky's Branding

Odd Sky seem to have a new ad based around cycling and Team Sky winning the Tour de France six times when their sponsorship ended at the beginning of the month.


Initially the sponsorship was to end at the end of the 2019 season, Ineos I believe wanted to get on board earlier and Comcast were seemingly happy with this arrangement. Presumably the promo was made in line with the expected timescale and not ditched post rethink.

The Sport Thread

I believe the screens were for the event only, if they're for the tournament they'll need a lot of fine tuning. Watch the start on the iPlayer and compare with the end, a couple went decidedly wonky during the afternoon.

I really expected the BBC to produce that No 1 Court event coverage, but not so, the AELTC's own in house broadcaster did it.

Eurovision 2020 - Netherlands - NOS - AVRO-TROS

Still got it wrong though, coz I saw Italy. 😂


Shush.... (I lost 200 votes in the mix)


I've just re-run the Televote segment and Netherlands won after they were awarded their points, The North Macedonian or Swedish songs were too far behind after that even if one of them got zero. The 200 votes that went AWOL on my, on the night count up, indeed would have produced an Italian winner, so the methodology would have been right then too.
