BT Sport are to try and stream all 24 UEFA Europa League group matches again tonight, after failing last year and abandoning the project.


So they've once again abandoned the Connected TV apps for this, it's only available online and on mobile apps.


Apparently aiming for an early 2021 launch...

Looks like the England v Barbarians Quilter Cup game may be called off, meaning live-rights holder Sky Sports Arena and Mix will need some filler at 2pm and highlights holder BBC Two will need something to fill at 6pm on Sunday.


and they will need alternative ptrogramming as the match has indeed been cancelled

Indeed, Sky Sports Arena taking live Bermuda 10's rugby and some pre-rec filler, NFL highlights on Mix.

On ITV4 tonight, for the first time in 21 years, ITV will be showing a live Rugby Union international from Murrayfield, as Scotland play Georgia. Interesting to see who'll be presenter and commentator.

Jill Douglas hosting with Ian McGeechan and Jim Hamilton.
Turns out nobody had 2020 vision.

Looks like we've got an unbranded Six Nations graphics package for the Scotland game.

I'm not a regular viewer so this may not be unusual, but Sky Sports News seem to be in a different studio to normal, and didn't have the "L" graphics until about 5 past the hour
Write that down in your copybook now.

They’re in a temporary studio due to works in their main newsroom studio. Discussed at length somewhere here.
And the L-shape not appearing was either an automation mistake or intentional, as usually they don’t have it on until the end of the headline sequence.

Wouldn’t ITV have aired the Scotland games at the 2007 WC that were at Murrayfield?

There were no murrayfield games in the 2007 rwc. Just France and Cardiff.

It's great to see Rory Best as a studio analyst for Ireland vs Italy on ITV's coverage. I assume that this is a permanent position for him.

ITV have also added in crowd noise into their match coverage.

Don’t worry, I imagine he’ll stand up after the coverage.
