According to an article on Media Guardian today, it seems ITV are planning to move ITV News at Ten. The article about ITV purchasing highlights to the Cricket World Cup says: ''The ITV highlights will be shown at 10pm each night and last between 60 and 90 minutes.''
If true, i'm angry that ITV would mess around with News At Ten in this way. No wonder BBC News at Ten consistently beats them in the ratings! If anyone would like to read the article, here it is: http://www.theguardian.com/media/2015/jan/27/itv-scores-cricket-world-cup-highlights
Let's use our own misunderstanding to beat ITV with a stick yet again for a decision made nearly a decade and a half ago!
10pm is pretty much the only time Sky will let anyone air the highlights to games - most of which will be on ITV4. Great that ITV are giving extra exposure to the England games and it remains to be seen whether they would delay the news for those . I'm no cricket fan but given the sports lack of exposure if any deal with Sky means 10pm is the only option I think it justifies moving News at Ten - and if rather than jumping up and down you checked the facts you'd see that most of the games fall on Friday, Saturday or Sunday, with only two on a Monday. Rightly, or to be more precise, wrongly, News at Ten has been moved on Mondays frequently for other things, so two episodes for the cricket isn't much in the grand scheme of things.
