Also, some viewers would be watching it on the Satellite Pay TV channels these days. The show is broadcast on a number of European pay tv channels into Australia.
Speaking of which, this year I had access to the live broadcast from Cyprus on Rik Sat on Sunday morning. I noticed that during the performances SBS was about 30 seconds behind the satellite broadcast from Cyprus. Then by the time they got to Joel Creasey announcing Australia’s points, SBS was about 2-3 minutes behind the other broadcast. Does this mean SBS delays the “live” broadcast to fit in more adverts?
