Fox Sports

I wonder why they’ve ramped up the coverage tonight? Why don’t they do this for all their games.

they have all hands on deck not3 teams in 3 different locations plus a studio. thats 4 sets of graphics, 3 sets of hardware (cameras, mics, trucks) 3 sets of engineers on ground. basically its a lot. here everythings in the one location tonight.

It was a unique situation where Suncorp Stadium hosted two games back-to-back

Double header…I guess easy to create an event around it.

What’s interesting…

AFL has free-to-air with SEVEN on Friday, Saturday (arvo + night) & Sunday.

NRL doesn’t have free-to-air on Saturday (no NINE), so you have to have Foxtel.

I guess that’s been one of Foxtels selling points (‘Super Saturday’) & accounts for some big ratings?

Yet its amazing when you see over 700k (7 + 7Mate) for a SEVEN (free to air) AFL game…

And you have FOX FOOTY getting its biggest ratings for the year so far with 350k+…

YET IT’S NOT EVEN THEIR BROADCAST :joy:

Hooray!

Fox Sports have signed a 4-year agreement to show all cricket played in England by the National Team outside the Ashes

Without access to The Ashes in England, Fox Sports have tried their best to remove English cricket from their schedules. I guess Fox didn’t want to risk another EPL debacle.

I wonder if Fox will reinstate English domestic cricket? (probably not).

Fox Sports will lose all rights to netball at the end of the year, with the end of ANZ Championship and the start of the five-year deal with Channel Nine and Telstra.

Some good and bad news for Fox Sports. While they have gained English cricket, they’ve lost Netball to Nine. Step backwards for women’s sport

Will Ten and Fox still televise the International Test Series and Constellation Cup this year? As Fast5 begins after Constellation Cup

How is this a backwards step? This is showing women’s sport on the biggest stage - free tv - every Australian will now have access to see the game, now not just a few on pay tv. This is a massive leap forward for women’s sport and combined with cricket on ten it’s a win win for both sports.

Hopefully for Fox Sports, Australian Sam Stosur wins her semi-final French Open match tonight, which will mean they will have exclusive rights to a Grand Slam Final involving an Aussie for the first time ever. A rare premium event exclusive to Fox Sports.

Stosur lost. Got pumped.

###Rugby Union Test Series

From 11 June

One of the most anticipated inbound Rugby tours launches this weekend when the Wallabies host England in an historic three-Test series and FOX SPORTS will ensure fans don’t miss a minute of the action.

The tour will be the first time in the century-old rivalry that the two nations have met in a three-Test series and it will be the first encounter since the Wallabies ended England’s World Cup dream last year.

With England coming off a stunning Six Nations victory and under the guidance of new Australian coach, Eddie Jones, the stage is set for a gripping three weeks of international Rugby.

FOX SPORTS will be the only Australian broadcaster delivering live and ad break free coverage in HIGH DEFINITION beginning this Saturday night at Suncorp Stadium, Brisbane.

Saturday’s coverage begins at 5pm when Nick McArdle joins former Wallabies George Gregan and Greg Martin to preview the upcoming New Zealand v Wales clash before the team return at 7.20pm with John Eales and Phil Kearns to analyse the opening Wallabies v England Test.

At 8pm, the voice of Rugby in Australia, Greg Clark, alongside World Cup winning greats Rod Kafer and Tim Horan take over to call the LIVE action.

From Brisbane, the series moves to Melbourne (June 18) before concluding at Allianz Stadium in Sydney on June 25 with the third and final Test.

FOX SPORTS commentators Horan and Clark were joined by Wallabies star Israel Folau in Brisbane this evening to launch FOX SPORTS’ coverage by turning the city of Brisbane GOLD in partnership with the Brisbane City Council.

Key landmarks and buildings around the city will be illuminated GOLD in the lead up to the opening Test to encourage all Aussies to #GetYourGoldOn in support of the Wallabies.

Australia’s most capped Wallaby, Gregan who played a record 139 Tests, said:

”This is a huge moment for Australian Rugby. It’s the only time that the Wallabies and England – two of the game’s biggest rivals – have played a three test series on Australian soil. Im sure the whole country will get behind our men in gold, as Brisbane has done tonight by turning the city gold in support of our national team.

“With so much history between these two teams, and so much to play for – it’s going to be an epic three weeks of Rugby and I can’t wait to see opposing coaches, and former Randwick rugby teammates, Michael Cheika and Eddie Jones go head to head,” Gregan said.

FOX SPORTS News 500 will cover all the build-up leading into the weekend’s action before delivering the best highlights and all the reaction across the three week Series. In addition, Australia’s number one multi-sports website, foxsports.com.au, will provide the best analysis, opinion and video highlights.

The 2016 US Open golf starts tonight in Pennsylvania. IIRC this is the first time the tournament is shown on pay TV only with no FTA simulcast. Previously US Open was shown on Nine, Ten and then Seven.

It’s been a few years. The last time the US Open was on FTA was in 2011 on Ten/One. I don’t recall Seven ever getting the rights to the US Open?

Never shown on Seven, didn’t realise it was 2011 the last one shown but quick look back, apparently it was. But it’s been on Fox ever since Ten had it.

Still the days when nine had it and butchered the coverage of the year Ogilvy won it with Today.
