BBC Wales out of running to show Pro 14 next season

Post by RugbyFan100 on Tue 06 Mar 2018, 11:58 am

First topic message reminder :

http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-wales-43302261

Live coverage of club rugby will not be shown on BBC Two Wales next season after the BBC failed to reach a deal to continue broadcasting the Pro 14 tournament.

Competition organisers are understood to have awarded the UK rights to a pay-TV service, but BBC Wales had hoped to continue broadcasting games in Wales.

It means viewers will no longer be able to watch club games on free-to-air television in English. Negotiations over Welsh language rights are ongoing.

So you'd be better off watching the welsh prem and the good players playing in the french leagues rugby? Not sure I'd like that as a fan!

Yes I'm sure it is in Ireland where they now have 1 broadcaster for most of the games!

At the end of the day, a new broadcaster is coming in to offer the pro14 more money. And if they turned down BBC's increased offer then thats good news.

I tend to agree. More money is key.

Fair enough. Does seem like it will require a shift in mentality for the fans in Wales/Scotland who've become accustomed to FTA rugby.

Don't see an issue with it personally, its the same model as in England - pay up or don't watch

The Pro14 has bitten off more than it can chew in this respect, adding teams and splitting to conferences etc. The nightmare logistics involved with one single broadcaster showing it means that it's unlikely that 1 broadcaster goes for it.

Why?

Because, like sky sports have shown, they are not interested. The Pro14 should have done everything in it's power to convince Sky (and to a lesser extent BT Sports) to get exclusive rights. But instead they seemed to be chasing a solution that involved Eir Sports, and then think about the rest at a later date.

Time will tell if that was the right option. I don't think it is.

Now again you're making things up and are full of sh!t, except the articles from a while back claimed that Sky wanted exclusive rights to the UK and Ireland but were OUTBID by Eir in Ireland so instead of acknowledging whats been reported you pick the elements you want to create a conspiracy that exists only in your mind

Yes, Sky were outbid for the Irish rights only.

Sky wanted both UK and Ireland, which would have been great. But the Pro14 wanted the irish rights to go to EirSports. So Sky bailed.




Back to you making things up, you do realise how a tender process works don't you?

BBC 2 Wales

So despite having absolutely no evidence that an Irish only bid from Sky sports was made, and infact the only evidence in the press being the opposite, i.e: - "Sky’s strategy was based on having the rights for both the UK and Ireland" - you still insist that a tender process that involved Sky and Eirsports for the Irish rights only was followed?

Is there a link to an easy summary of how the TV rights are currently divided up? Few bits I'm not clear on, ie how do TV rights in Ulster work, what about Scottish games etc



BBC NI have the rights for Ulsters games except those Sky chose, BBC Alba have rights to the Scottish games and TG4 have rights to Connacht, Leinster and Munster games. These again are all once Sky have had their pick


Not any more.

They probably wanted something like the current deal which they're picking up from practically nothing compared to what they pay for other sports. I saw somewhere that Thierry Henry gets paid more from sky than the pro14. They wanted the irish subscribers and pulled out when they were offered the UK only.

Finally. Thank you.

And this, in my opinion was a big mistake. I realise money is the first and foremost, but I remain unconvinced that a deal involving Eir sport, premier sports and AN Other is going to be better in the long run than a single Sky TV deal.

I doubt the pro14 will reveal it's tv deal figures anyway, which will be telling.

Ta.

I liked that the Kings game was aired on Facebook and Youtube - good to see the league finally adapting to modern tech.

BBC Wales made a "significantly increased financial bid" but could not secure the rights. So, seeing as S4C come under the beeb as well, then thats those two channels gone, plus SKY, so this new channel must be bidding in excess of £10million surely, or otherwise the league is up shoite creek without a paddle.

Why are people not seeing the seriousness of this ?

They had no comparison. They had no Sky bid equivalent to Eir Sports bid Marty. Unless you're willing to share some secret that nobody else knows.

Again, I'm not aware that the Eir sports bid was comparable. It was Ireland only wasn't it? I thought you knew this.

Does the BBC article say they've been outbid? Surely even the Pro14 won't have taken less money for the same services.

Because we haven't been given all the facts so there's no need for the gnashing of teeth yet ?

I'm hugely sure S4C aren't covered by this as the specifically state 'English language'

-Happy with any increased money. Hope fully Pro14 will confirm this soon.

-Not happy at the amount of platforms that us Welsh (and presumably Scottish) will have to purchase in order to watch our domestic rugby teams compared to those in Ireland.

That's fine. One set of fans paying more than another for the same amount of rugby is, shall we say, "unfortunate".

S4C are funded by the BBC.

They may well get games, I don't know. But I cannot see how this new channel is going to cover what is payed by SKY, BBC Wales, BBC NI, BBC ALBA.

BBC Wales already pay millions more than the other regions, trust me, this is going to kill the league.

Why would S4C  being funded by the BBC stop them from bidding for TV rights for some games ?



Because BBC Wales and S4C get a package. They do not bid separately. Unless something has changed recently.

It's a different country rugby. Different currency in some cases. Same thing happens for the European cups. Number of options including moving.

Ha. It's amazing isn't it that where you live will effect you. You have to pay more for a similar house in London than wigan for instance. Wages are better in leeds than Barnsley. Etc etc.

That's not a comparable analogy at all.

Unless you're actually saying that living in Newport is far more desirable than say Dublin.

I'm saying sky and eir sports bid for different things. Therefore not comparable. I think you've lost the plot.

So there weren't separate tender processes for both then?

Well if you want a different set of tv move rugby. Or pay the going rate. Or make a choice on what you're willing to pay.

Audiences will be lost trust me, viewing figures for BBC Wales are 100,000+. Pay per view TV will not get that audience.

One for Irish rights and one for Uk and Irish rights that included both Eir Sports and Sky Sports ?- not that I'm aware of. Again, if you can show me that there was - I will gladly accept that I've learnt something today.

That's the point that you seem completely unable to understand.

The new tv deal has meant that the purchase points are now different. Where this was not the case before.

The Welsh and Scottish look set to be shafted unless something changes. Unsurprising, but true.
