Am I right in gathering that SBS aren't showing most of the games live this year? So the only option is paying a billion dollars a month for Setanta?
SBS have a weird deal for this tournament. They get to show 2 quarter finals, 1 semi and the final live and they are showing 4 of the biggest group matches delayed and when I say delayed, it's about 30 hours after the match! Quite annoying, although their daily highlights show is good.Disappointing there isn't more live coverage this time around. You'd hardly know it was on here.
Which, despite the quality of the players on display, is fair in a sense. It's completely irrelevant to any tourney we're involved in.
SBS must have been rebuffed. Generally speaking, when they cover something they do it properly. Really hoping they've got the next WC locked in. Get these numpty commercial networks showing the best matches on delay, leaving SBS to properly cover the rest, but the games aren't always as good.
