Raiders V Broncos on TV?

Grandstand 30 August 2010 4

Does anyone know if WIN will show the Raiders V Broncos match live into Canberra this Friday?

Ch 9 are showing this game as the late game into Sydney but how difficult is it for WIN to show this game live to where the fans are?

UPDATE: Thanks to CanRaiders for providing the link

WIN Network Program Director, Danny Mitrovic said: “Just like the people of Canberra, WIN is right behind the Raiders and committed to delivering great programming to our viewers in the region.

“The game potentially has a huge bearing on who the Dragons will play in week one of the finals, so viewers in the Illawarra region should also be excited about getting to see this match live to air.”

Canberra Raiders CEO Don Furner said this was huge news for the club and Raiders fans as they deserve to see the game live and thanked WIN for their support.

This is awesome news. I heard Don Furner on 666 radio saying he was going to ask for the match to be shown live instead of delayed, and it looks like he’s succeeded (or WIN came to their senses independently of this).

So Raiders fans take your phone off the hook at about 7:25 on Friday night, sit back with a cold one and watch the boys in green hand the Broncos another 56-nil flogging like they did last year!

Yes the Raiders and WIN were talking about getting the Brisbane feed which is the broncos game live. Fortunately it appears that WIN will now be showing the Brisbane feed with the Raiders game live.

This should be the case for any rare future Friday night games we get IMO.

Ahh, comments are finally open.

It’s being broadcast live into Brisbane, which means it’s being taped to be shown live, so I don’t see why it couldn’t be broadcast live into Canberra. I could imagine a scenario where it was being recorded to be shown delayed, such as where the commentators use phrasing like “we’ll be back right after the break” etc etc, but clearly this isn’t the case here.
