If I had to have a guess, it think it will shown on 7TWO or Seven could give the rights to Ten, at least that way Ten will have a summer sport to show .
Does anyone actually watch this these days?
Yes, it can still pull a decent TV audience. The race start is a Boxing Day tradition. Last year the coverage attracted 403,000 metro viewers.
Its about time Seven either make 7Mate or 7Two into a HD channel
Re, the Sydney to Hobart yacht race coverage: Do we know when Seven last signed a broadcast deal for that and for how long?
Presuming that Seven still has the rights to the Sydney to Hobart for this year, I could imagine the start of the race + other long-form coverage airing on 7TWO (I don’t think yacht racing would be of much interest to the target demographic of 7mate) with Sydney to Hobart updates on the main channel during ad breaks of the cricket coverage.
I’d imagine that Seven (and probably all networks) will likely have all their channels available in HD when we eventually transition to DVB-T2/HEVC or whatever system the industry adopts for the 2nd generation of digital terrestrial television broadcasting in Australia.
But until then, unfortunately I can’t see the current situation changing anytime soon. Do I think it’s annoying that only one Australian network is currently running two MPEG4 HD channels on DVB-T? Yes, but it is what it is.
We usually watch it in the Iunch break of the cricket.
Seven really need to invest in a new set for Game Day. It’s looking very tired these days.
It must be almost 10 years old?
Yeap, they’ve used the same set ever since the show began in March 2008. Also, Talking Footy really needs a new set as well.
They might just wait, until they have decide if they’re moving or not.
Game Day set has had I think one refurbishment in that time.
Talking Footy I don’t think needs any change to the set. It works perfectly as it is.
Some of the paneling is showing signs of wear and tear. It just looks cheap now days, and the stone wall paper… yuck

The Godolphin stable has thrown up a challenge to Winx’ s run at the record after nominating star four-year old Kementari.
Hosted by Bruce McAvaney.
Will 7 be announcing which NFL games they’re covering or is it purely looking up each week what’s on?
So far the season opener between Philadelphia and Atlanta next Friday week, September 7, is confirmed to be shown on 7mate.
Games are selected on a week-by-week basis. However, they’ll air all games which fall under the ‘Sunday Night Football’ package or are played on Thanksgiving.
The Melbourne Cup is set to switch from Seven to Ten, according to reports in The Australian. Ten will start broadcasting it from 2019.
So Nine or Ten?
Ten sorry have fixed
Finally after years of pathetic coverage from Seven the rights move back to their original home on Ten.
