Sky Sports Golf schedule also changed, though all they’re displacing is various Masters related content anyway. Main Event sticking with the football.

BBC now appear to be just using the official graphics, not their own graphics recoloured as previously.

Edit:Womens’ FA Cup moved to BBC One.

Is it me or are the masters coverage on the Bbc looking hazy like they have a 720p60 feed and it hasn’t converted well to 1080i25, Sky’s pictures look a lot better and sharper.


Just checked it on another telly, same thing the bbc picture just looks softer and hazy when it moves, even the graphics look soft.

Very moving tribute on LFC TV showing all the victims of the Hillsborough disaster following the minute of silence in the city at 3:06pm. LFC TV has been made FTA today but has closed down for the day as a mark of respect, only coming back on air for a period of reflection.

Also lovely to hear all the Liverpool radio stations playing “You’ll Never Walk Alone” out of the silence, even stations which would not normally feature it in their playlist.

LFC TV was free to air this weekend, as it was showing the Republic of Ireland legends v Liverpool legends match in Dublin, which was raising money for Sean Cox, the LFC supporter from Ireland, who was injured in an assault outside Anfield, before a champions league match last year.

But it was a nice move by LFC TV to remain free to air today, which allowed people to see the 96 we lost in 1989, during the period of reflection today. And as mentioned above, to then go back off air on this poignant day for the club and its supporters. It's been a difficult day for me.

While not confirmed yet and take this with a pinch of salt but the Daily Mirror is reporting that Cricket will make a return to Channel 4 for the first time in 14 years as they look set to cover highlights of the 2019 Cricket World Cup. BBC actually have ICC clip rights for their website as well as radio rights however it looks like an unexpected return to Channel 4.

Hope it's true as I grew up watching cricket on Channel 4 with my first memory being Andrew Caddick 4 wickets in an over against the West Indies in 2000 culminating with the fascinating Ashes series in 2005 with coverage in my opinion which still has never been surpassed by Sky Sports. Still surprised with BBC becoming the free to air home of cricket next year that they never went for it as they already have Radio & Online rights which fills in with what they have next year.
