Looks like channel 4 will be showing super league games next season , don’t know the ins and outs of the deal but it has to be a positive step in the right direction to get our game viewed by a wider audience and hopefully hook people in and get down to watch a game , who will then hopefully become lifelong supporters of their chosen club

Very interesting because bbc tipped to be showing SL games about 6 months ago.
I think C4 will make a good show of it.

Weird, but I haven’t seen a negative post yet. Early days.
Has to be good for the game’s future. A wider audience will hopefully drag a few more to live games.

This is fantastic news.

4 seem very good at publicising and promoting their coverage of sport too.

Really exciting for the game and a great opportunity to expose the greatest game to a new audience.

Season tickets holders may be put out due to some unconventional kick off times but hopefully they see past this and back it too.

I agree, I think C4 will attempt to be innovative and far less patronising than the BBC, although they have improved in recent years.

Dear god though, if nothing else please don't employ hat winging Welsh windbag Jonathon Davies.

Ten games spread over twelve clubs shouldn't inconvenience many, but you never know.

The only issue with the 12:30 kick off IMO is we’d be competing for an audience with the early football kick offs on Sky and BT. But otherwise great news. Hopefully they’ve got competent commentators who can actually get the players name right.

Lets hope they do a top job and wither want the full gig at some point in the future or, increase the profile of the sport and make other broadcasters more interested.

Agree with everything that's been said here - has to be positive for the game in general, will hopefully even lead to an increase in interest at Schools level, outside the traditional areas that include RL in their makeup anyway....

C4 have promoted and presented sport well IMO, so I'm expecting good things here...... factor in their National HQ move to Leeds and they could be looking to be much bigger players in our regional interests, including sport.....
