I bet they'll turn up on BT. Considering previously the rights holders had 5/6 live games plus 2/3 replays it seems reasonable they'd have all 8 games between them.


I suspect not as they'd be 'up against' the two matches on each evening on the BBC. If they were scheduled for Mon or Thu it would be entirely different. surprised me to see a 1:3:3:1 split across the week in the first place.

In other rights news..
Sail GP (the lazily entitled 'Formula 1 of sailing) last year filling up the airtime on BT Sport, is now on Sky Sports Arena for this season.

Doubt there was an intense battle for the UK and Ireland rights.

As last year, all on screen and off world feed coverage provided again by Whisper.

Apologies if it's been mentioned before, but Saturday sees Formula E return to BBC Two. Jennie Gow will be presenting live coverage of the Marrakesh race, in a nice mid-afternoon slot.

In case you want to watch it with ad breaks, it's also on Eurosport - was BT Sport last season.

Wasn’t it BBC Sport, BT Sport and Eurosport/Quest last year with a magazine show at least on Free Sports? Basically they give it away free to anyone who wants it, it seems.

I hope you are enjoying the Sail GP.
Remote production with some of the on board yacht cameras being controlled from Ealing Studios.
Also the camera racking for the chase boats, helicopter and hand held cameras is also being done in Ealing.
It seemed to go OK yesterday, although my colleagues back in base were sounding tired when we came off air!

It's a solid production, for something that isn't that easy to cover.
There's no phsycal 'track', just a course so explaining it with commentary and graphics is no easy task.

Only problem I have is the crackling nature of the on boat communication system, and there's no pre F1 'team radio' style graphic, so the commentary team are talking over an already difficult to hear audio.

Also some of the virtual graphics which are overlaid on the course are very wobbly, and after race 3 the boundary line graphic ended up being overlaid on the upper deck of a spectator boat.
But, little niggles to be expected.

Just finished derigging the 18m tower you saw in the middle of th island, and getting it all back to the mainland.
A long day.
Thanks for your thoughts on it all.
It is quite a challenge to cover as you say.
The course can be wherever the winds are blowing, so changes daily.

The Rugby Paper leading with a story that the Six Nations is to go back to Sky in a £300m deal.

Will be interesting to see if Welsh rights are sublet to S4C.
