Eurovision 2020 - Netherlands - NPO/AVROTROS/NOS

Any news how the EBU visits to Masstricht and Rotterdam went? They've happened haven't they?


NOS are likely to have been trusted to make the decision on their own and then present that for rubber stamping by the EBU. The Political scene in the Netherlands is wholly different from Israel and relations between the Government and PSB much better. The NOS Event producer Sietse Bakker is a former EBU employee too.

Britbox UK - UK SVoD Platform to launch

However, the studios are intent on splitting up the aggregators like Netflix and AZPV. They're not likely to approve of a super aggregator unless they are guaranteed a sum almost equal to the standalone fee they are likely to receive from their own products. I'm fairly certain though that BT are likely to add Britbox to their package range going forward. It'll be a valuable driver and also easy to manage too.

The Sport Thread

Not that I’m aware of.

A minor clarification, it appears that the restriction is not due to a complete lack of live streaming, Ofcom recognise that some Channel 5 apps do indeed feature this, it’s just that the numbers of these and their distribution across devices is deemed insufficient. I presume as My5 is developed across devices at some stage the threshold for numbers and distribution will be reached and the restriction accordingly removed.

The Sport Thread

As predicted here a few days ago there are to be gender equalisations in the 'Crown Jewels' imminently, also the Paralympics are to be added. The linked article is incomplete.

Top Gear

Chris is playing the fall-guy well, which is probably as cast, I've not watched for ages but have taken in a couple of this new series and ENJOYED them. A lot of the antics, banter or whatever you choose to call it is well placed. It's three presenters who seem to be having a bloody good time.

Channel 4

I hope they use their original Channel 4 Cricket theme Mambo No. 5 (A Little Bit of...) by Lou Bega, for the coverage on Sunday. Will bring back memories of the final few years of cricket on terrestrial TV before it went to Sky and what a terrific job Channel 4 used to do for their cricket programming.


It's a rebroadcast of the coverage on Sky. That's all. There'll, apart from the switch for F1 be no C4 interaction whatsoever.
