Just noticed in Prime’s TV guide for next Sunday the biggest AFL match of the year between the Cats and Saints blockbuster is NOT being shown live in the ACT.
Instead Canberra fans will be treated to the crucial Swans vs Kangaroos clash from 1pm (actually a Foxtel match, but one which Prime will be picking up the feed for).
If you’d like to watch the Cats vs Saints game, you can watch it. But on replay at the great time of Midnight Sunday.
If the AFL are serious about developing the game in the Northern states, you’d think on this occassion when you have a clash of two undefeated teams, they’d make an exception and show the game on free to air.
Interestingly the game in Melbourne has been moved to 3pm so it can be shown ‘live’ on Channel Seven as a lead in to their 6pm news.
At the very least with the Swans vs North Melbourne game commencing at 1pm and finishing at 4pm, you’d think Prime locally would cross to the came at 4pm. But no, Canberra viewers will be greeted through to 6pm with 2 hours of comedy shows.
Come on AFL and Prime, for once do the right think for your local AFL audience.
