Hopefully we might be able to get a bit more live AFL from July 2. Prime and SC Ten have been extremely disapointing with their coverage this year. Late night delayed AFL telecasts so that we can watch Simpsons marathons just doesn’t cut it for me.

Please!! but I don’t hold out much hope…

And soccer?…..

Yes! Good news indeed. Live F1 at last, after all these years….

Are we getting ONE HD only or the SD channel (called TWELVE I suppose) as well?

Both TEN and SC10 are a bunch of cheapskate shysters. Their analogue service still only broadcasts mono audio!!! HAHAHA

Hah, I had always assumed it was a problem with my TV’s reception.

Hercsie 12:51 pm 16 Jun 09

Thanks Holden!

His brother Geoff won it in 1993 – also in a pug.

Probably some kind of record?

G-Fresh 12:29 pm 16 Jun 09

I sincerely hope so, and I’ll believe it when I see it!!! Channel 10 said in early 2007 that Channel 10HD would be broadcast on Southern Cross Ten “mid next year”

Both TEN and SC10 are a bunch of cheapskate shysters. Their analogue service still only broadcasts mono audio!!! HAHAHA

Good news – the sports coverage on the national free to air channels is terrible – not one of them made mention of the fact that David Brabham won the Le Mans 24hour.

That’s pretty piss weak really. Best to rely on internet media for that. 😉

About time! I hope this means no longer having to stay up late to watch sports.

They’re waving that Commonwealth Games banner a bit early, its not till October 2010.

Holden Caulfield 11:47 am 16 Jun 09

Great news! A bit late, but great news all the same.

I would have liked their 24 Hours of Le Mans coverage this past weekend. 🙁
