Seems a good idea more games on TV,hope this does not encourage people to stay at home to watch matches rather than go through the turnstyles ,just a thought.


I don't think so. In fact, I think the opposite is true.

More eyes on the game on TV = more fans = more people wanting to go to matches.

Just got to hope they get a half decent commentator /presentation team, that don't deal in clichés. I'm sick to death of the "bottoms" on Sky.


Heard Hemmings and Steve coming out of retirement :lol: . No only joking but it’s great to have a new tv partner just got to hope they get it right and as someone said let’s not turn into a flat cap viewing mess.

We could start by making the game more attractive and entertaining like it was about 10 years ago and previous to that. Hopefully the people who run the game will realise 80 minutes of five drives and a kick doesn’t draw in new supporters.

Was interesting to hear Powell talk about how no scrums (which is obviously going) and 6 again (which is staying) negatively affected the game in his view as it meant teams were much more likely to play centrally trying to generate a quick ruck and the 6 again, rather than playing with a bit of width to make breaks on the edges.

We are too quick sometimes to introduce rule changes / adaptations rather than use a set of rules that have made the game what it is.

Very true. In my view the game was better with

1. Substitutes instead of "interchanges"
2. Semblance of a scrum to leave room for scrum plays and space for the backs.
3. A bit more aggression / physical confrontation.

Hull v saints in on channel 4 the following Saturday that's should be a good game too. Hull usually start well that's a big potential upset on the cards, although I expect saints to win really. Another good fixture for Channel 4 to have.

We have Cas at home on the thurdsday for our second match and that's on sky.

A big guffaw from the rugby gods pitching us against Cas for the first home game. Could be a cracker.

Sponsors will be queuing up for deals if CH4 go beyond 2022. A great move, even if we were paying CH4 to do it!
I’ve been very dissatisfied at varying degrees with sky sports RL production over the last decade.I cancelled my subscription this year.

Very happy with the terrestrial coverage, it is only possible due to Super League negotiating a deal with Sky that removes their exclusive rights for all league games.
Does anyone have any details of the contract value for Channel4 coverage of Super League?
Not sure about live streaming of all Super League games, it is important that fans actually attend the games, and saturation coverage could deter this.


The live streaming is important to get money into the game from folk who logistically (and for other reasons) cannot make it to alive game. I hope that viewers that live well outside the M62 corridor, will watch Chanel 4's coverage, like what they see and will then watch it streamed live. Lets hope that new terrestrial viewers are aware that this service will be available, and it will be of a decent quality.

Great news to get more money in to the sport, more viewers and potential fans, and best of all even more games for us to watch through the year :-)
