The halychon days of the Two Eddies. You’d think that nobody else partook in the World Championship other than Irvine and whatever two drivers happened to be driving for Jordan at that point. Of course there was always the BBC/ITV and Murray Walker. These days of course there is no Irish broadcaster, eir Sport having lost the rights once Sky got them exclusively.
(That doesn’t mean Warner won’t launch some sort of streaming service at some point. Just don’t expect it to use the HBO brand if it has no HBO content).
Domestic customers can call and - if they get through - can put their Sky Sports subscription on “pause” with no notice period.
Not sure if same is applying in UK though.
The RFL have also suspended their season, which I think more or less is pretty much all professional sport in Europe suspended.
Absolutely, but that won’t save Sky from an avalanche of cancellations if there is little or no live sport for an extended period.
I’d expect the FX brand to disappear in the US eventually (or at least get a new logo that doesn’t associate it with the broadcast network).
Since the demise of Tara TV, RTÉ have talked from time to time about an international channel but aren’t currently presuing that. There is a cut down version of the RTÉ Player available internationally that contains the programmes RTÉ hold worldwide rights to.
However, Sky have never had exclusive rights to the Six Nations before. They did a unilateral deal for England home games only in the very early years of professionalism when it was still the Five Nations, after which the rights were centralised.
He only held onto the Fox Network and it’s directly linked assets - Fox News Channel, Fox Business, the national pay-TV Fox Sports/ FS branded stations, and the Big Ten Network. Basically the stuff Disney couldn’t acquire (because the FCC wouldn’t have let Disney own both ABC and the Fox Network, and wouldn’t have been keen on ESPN and Fox Sports tieing the knot either).
The only TV event in which the game itself didn’t go ahead was Limerick v Waterford in hurling, in a waterlogged Gaelic Grounds. That game was provisionally switched to today at 2pm but no longer live on eir Sport. Leinster v Cheetahs involved the two unreserved temporary stands at either end of the ground being closed and supporters being accommodated elsewhere in the ground.
I wouldn’t take the e-flyer as definite confirmation the Simpsons won’t be on it! It only mentions 15 shows (three per brand) and the Simpsons doesn’t slot neatly into the five brands of Disney+ (Walt Disney, Pixar, Nat Geo, Star Wars, and Marvel), it’s kind of it’s own thing.
I did pre-register though, and got what amounted to an e-flyer today in my inbox . Which makes no mention of the Simpsons, incidentally.
