I seem to recall an NRL radio coverage thread into the previous forum.
Status quo continues with Triple M Sydney. AFL Swans game gets priority over NRL so no commercial coverage of the 4pm NRL game today. ABC were even promoting the fact they were the only radio broadcaster covering the 4pm game today. A terrible contract Triple M signed with the AFL which should have been paid out years ago.
I am not sure if it’s a rights Issue. On monday triple m has “almost” complete exclusive rights. Abc can do online and on dab or in a regional centre only if, the local team is playing. Example tonight you could have heard the game on 666 am in canberra.
Thursday night I am not sure if triple m has exclusive analog rights in the capital cities. Abc seem to bring games in regional areas on Thursday no matter who is playing. Maybe that is a choice the ABC makes not to bring the game in the capital city on analog radio. Though does brisbane 612 am have the game on? I think the broncos play this thursday. Be interesting to know.
The AFL doesn’t give a stuff about what the NRL does. Heck this week will be the same when they cover the Sydney derby instead of the 4PM Sunday game, although they do cover both Monday games this week (interesting given Qld don’t get a Public Holiday)
