I believe the final day maths are Sky 7, BT 2, AZPV 1. I’m open to correction there.


So presumably...

Sky Sports Main Event
Sky Sports Premier League
Sky Sports Football

Challenge?
Sky Sports News?

Sky Sports Mix, Sky Sports Action and Sky Sports Arena will be considered before Challenge. Sky Sports News will cover all matches as usual I'd expect.

Yes, they’ll certainly use Action and Arena - as they have done before when they have too many games.

Sky have aired Darts on Sky Sports Football & Premier League before when they have had too much sport on at one time so any of their channels is possible before Challenge or Sky Sports News.

Would be nice if there is still a bit to play for on the final day - I've long thought that all matches should be offered for the last day of the season and was surprised that with them opening up the four midweek/Bank Holiday rounds they didn't include the final day too.

Think the confusion might be that Sheffield Utd v Everton on Monday 20th is currently listed as Sky Sports on the Premier League fixtures page but it is actually Amazon's fourth and final game.

And red button Match Choice is available too.
Write that down in your copybook now.

There's no need to put them all on a linear channel, like Sky didn't, and BT don't, do on Champions League nights when there are eight games at the same time. They can use the red button and online.

Is the director’s cut the 2.5-hour version aired on BBC Three several years ago? Actually I’d prefer them to replay the full 4-hr coverage.

The director's cut is the one the BBC released on DVD and Blu-Ray. It is complete, but it has some extra effects added that weren't in the live broadcast (most notably dimming the sky in the James Bond helicopter scene so it match the nighttime of the stadium) and some different camera shots because they didn't get the best ones on the original broadcast.

I don't know if the broadcast will be unedited, of course.

For some reason though, even though they have the director's cut on the DVD and Blu-ray for the opening cermeony, and an option to watch without commentary, the closing ceremony is literally just what was broadcast at the time, including the "Live: Olympic Stadium" caption that pops up several times.

Think so. It's 2:30 duration.

Yes, as I posted on the previous page - see the programmes page: https://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/b037w9df#broadcasts

I guess the parade of nations is almost entirely removed in this version.
