Seven Cricket Coverage


#726

All my mates calling for a return to Nine. They’re saying it a disaster. I can’t watch as I am at work.


#727

Seven is not great but Nine shouldn’t have it either, they were just as bad.


#728

Seven already copping a hammering on twitter. Apparently missed showing the toss live (perhaps they don’t have the rights?).


#729

You are correct from what I’ve read - Fox has these rights for Tests.

Cricket Australia should’ve just gone fully with Ten! This split free-to-air/pay coverage is a mess.


#730

Yes the missed it. And they do have the rights its just they need to dip into Fox’s coverage for it.

Look its always going to be a disaster with this simulcast crap and seven have a sub par team compared to fox. This whole thing will blow up in CA face. And so it should. It will be a long 6 years. The whole rights process was corrupted.


#731

Or pure FTA Seven. 10 I agree would be a much better match.


#732


#733

Graphics look pretty good so far!


#734

The toss was shown on Fox with a Fox commentator Isa Guha handing over the coin - a weird rights allocation.


#735

7’s graphics look like they have taken inspiration from a cricket video game. Hard to word but they just don’t look quite right.


#736

Can’t believe that there is rights for coin toss, should be something that is common for both networks. Of course CA is going to bend over backwards for Fox.


#737

There’s no reason why 7 couldn’t have shown it.
Neutral Cricket Australia Mic not Fox Cricket.


#738

I heard that the agreement was that the pitch report and toss was Fox produced for Tests and Seven produced for twenty20s


#739

I don’t mind them, can actually read them.
Basic is how I’d describe them.


#741


#742

Forcing myself to sample Seven’s coverage for a little while and is it even in HD? Looks shit compared to Fox.


#743

it’s MUCH better than the multi-coloured abomination on fox cricket


#744

Ponting is very refreshing as a commentator. The others seem alright.


#745


#746

Looks as HD as anything else we get from 7 in Tasmania (where I am). Put it this way, looks massively better than the WBBL did the other day on 7mate in glorious SD.
