Sport on Freeview 2015 – Issue 4

Welcome back to the blog – this week the Snooker Welsh Open and the Cricket World Cup take centre stage…

Snooker Welsh Open – Poor Scheduling on BBC Red Button.   Very Poor…

The Snooker Welsh Open starts Monday, with main coverage on Eurosport for those of you who have access to that channel… but for us Freeviewers, we at least get to see some of the action.  But, not all of it through the Red Button Channel.  Listings are below – but here’s a guide to what you can see, and what you can’t…

Monday – 1pm Live Afternoon Session on Red Button and 1 hour of play live at 7pm on Red Button.  The BBC2 Wales evening highlights shows from Monday to Friday are not on Red Button, but can be viewed on Iplayer, these will feature the conclusion to the games shown at 7pm.

Tuesday – 1pm Live Afternoon Session on Red Button and 1 hour of play live at 7pm on Red Button.

Wednesday – 1pm Live Afternoon Session on Red Button, but Cycling World Championships starts today, so for the Snooker you’ll have to watch via the BBC Sport App or website.

Thursday – Same as Wednesday.

Friday – 1pm Live Afternoon Session and 9:30pm Quarter Final Highlights as per BBC Wales Coverage, so no changes.

Saturday – At present, the evening second semi final is not being shown, cycling has been picked instead. I have contacted the BBC a number of times this week, even complaining, but no reply as of yet.  In my opinion, the Snooker on Wednesday, Thursday and Saturday that’s affected by the Snooker could easily be shown delayed after the Cycling, or the Eastenders 30th anniversary features… there is space for the Snooker, there’s plenty of programmes on Red Button in the next week that play in a loop.  (E.g The first episode of Eastenders from 1985 is on a loop for 6 ½ hours one night next week after the cycling, so the episode will be shown 13 times in a row!).  So… enjoy the Snooker – but I do hope for some last minute schedule changes so we can perhaps see the cycling-affected coverage somewhere.

Click on the link below to find full comprehensive listings for Motors TV right up until February 20th – many thanks to Motors TV for the interview and their kind permission to publish these listings.  Pubs and clubs out there with Freeview – why not switch to Motors TV?  There will be plenty of times during the week where there is no sport on TV, and I think it’s a good channel which will grab the attention of the punter.
