    You are correct. They do cover the cricket but it is not considered as important as, say, reruns of The Nanny.

    It sucks not having daylight saving, sometimes the cut the cricket for Antics Roadshow! The absolute most boring show on T.V. I'd rather watch soccer.

    One positive is the new format for displaying the score. I love it!

    The color of immortality, nature and envy - you are truly a unique person. While clearly the color of nature, you also symbolize rebirth, fertility and hope in the world. On the other side of the spectrum, a natural aptitude to money with green coming to signify money and possibly even *********!

    Look on the brightside at least you don't have to pay £55 per month to watch your national team play your national summer sport.

    I would love to pay that if it would guarantee good coverage of the games.

    Agree. I've had pay tv for 15 years now, only 6 tests in Australia a season, i'm quite happy to pay for the other 30 odd tests pay tv show throughout the year, and would pay more to get proper coverage of home games no problems. After 20 something years of hating ch 9 crazy idiotic coverage i'll pay anything for someone to do it right.

    I'm far happier paying up for coverage that's viewable and listenable without causing migraines or provoking me into hurling heavy objects at the television - or coverage that's actually viewable in the first place by the sounds of things.

    I am nonetheless heavily amused by all these shenanigans, and am enjoying my HD pictures.

    But for that, you also get a ton of sex phone-in shows (BangBabes still going?) and softcore erotic films on MoviesforMen starring Nikki Fritz and Shauna O’Brien. Well worth it.

    I was thinking about it, and Channel 4 used to go to the racing during the Tests and show the action on FilmFour, which I believe at that point was not yet a FTA channel.

    Say what you want, but I guess you get what you pay for. Money isn't something I've had a lot of in the last couple of years, but the sports channels are something I've made an allowance for (did cancel them after the Ashes until the Saffa Tests last year) because it's worth it. The coverage is exceptional. C4, BBC, they were okay, but Sky Sports is something else.
