Seven Cricket Coverage


#645

First impressions, haven’t switched over to Foxtel but it’s watchable and hasn’t annoyed me greatly yet! So that’s good enough for me, I’ll return. I just hope the Hurricanes can go alright this season. They went terribly last year but they sacked the coach after last season… who is now one of the Channel 7 commentators - Julia Price!


#646

Fox are carrying Seven’s coverage


#647

Same graphics too I assume then? The kids have lost the remote control. lol May not need it after all!


#648

The graphics are very minimalist, kind of bland actually.


#649

When is the first test?


#650

So no different commentators?
Only difference is SD on 7mate versus $10 HD of Foxtel?


#651

Thursday, coverage starts 10am.

A couple of images from 7Cricket’s twitter


Also you now need Kayo Sports to stream this game online.


#653

THis rights deal sounds more and more horrific as it ramps up. It’s going to be a long 6 years of this shit.


#654

Yep, same commentators and yep HD with the Foxtel (well it looks like it)

Found the remote, the other changes are no ad-breaks on Fox and none of the 7 in program advertising - test match broadcast details etc…


#655

Broadcasting, coverage, streaming-wise, I’d say yes. Cricket Australia going from strength to strength by completely cutting off the game after their scandal.


#656

oooh there’s a little score bug during the change of innings ad break.


#657

Fox Cricket using the same graphics as 7


#658

What does people think of the coverage so far?


#659

the coverage is good besides the graphics. They are too seven newsy- i loved the ten graphics!


#660

Factually what I said was Sunrise is always bigger than anything else on Seven; ie Olympic - sunrise was still on even though events were taking place.

I have said on a number of times, I will wait until I see their test coverage to give a view of it. This coming week, I however will enjoy watching the cricket from the Oval, and not in front of the box.

I have also stated, it’s not the commercial network that has the cricket, I couldn’t care less if it was Nine, Seven or Ten; i have always been a strong advocate around the poorly thought out TV rights in which CA gave out.

So unlike the after dark SkyNews, I atleast back myself up with facts, and base my views on what has happened in the pass when sport and sunrise are happening at the same time.


#661

I find these graphics to be quite similar to the ones for the 7 News. These graphics look quite News-centric to me. They should have used the package for what Channel 7 produce with the AFL with these graphics instead.

Who is the Grade Cricketer?


#664

He’s a mystery!

If you’re unaware, he’s on twitter @gradecricketer , as far as I know still playing grade cricket and providing humourous observations.
