Because the broadcast companies are cnuts looking to milk the customer for all they can. A better question is how can sky up it’s price for sports while it’s been losing packages left right and centre for years? And yes, they still add an extra charge for HD, and people pay it .I don't understand how paying for HD is still a thing in 2019. How can anything be broadcast in SD, and how does anyone possibly watch it without going loopy?
You can get ITV4 in HD if you have a Freeview HD TV.If you pay for HD with Sky then yes. If not, then no.
Graham Hunter is the sidekick, don 't know the commentator.Bit weird watching it now from when I used to watch it on Sky but at least it's in HD unlike Virgin forcing you to pay extra subscription. Not familiar with the commentators, sounds like I'm watching it off a betting site, but at least no cringey Clive Tyldesley!
They don’t have serie A though as premier snapped those rights up.Think Premier have it but not 100% sure. ITV should have a dedicated sports channel as they show lots of darts and snooker. Throw La Liga and Serie A in and could surely make it work.
Maybe second choice game could be early kick off on the Saturday or Sunday morning (can't remember which time ITV 4 actually starts). Or Monday night game if there is one.They haven't got a game next weekend as Premier have El Classico and ITV are showing darts.
Again. Premier sports have serie a until 2021.ITV have them til the end of the season as they were being given away basically as 11 Sports had it written in to both La Liga and Serie A (as well as the UFC contract that got terminated) that it must be shown on UK Tv. Sky sport and BT both obviously got shafted by 11 sports respectively, so both played hard ball and refused to give them a channel to show in the UK and 11 have made no effort to make it easily accessible by making tv apps or anything AFAIK.
Pretty sure they'll both be back on Sky/BT next season as the contracts will be cancelled.
The Monday game is Leganes v. Levante, the early Saturday game is Espanyol v. Real Valladolid. Of course Valencia v. Bilbao is the Sunday night game and darts take priority. The darts is on from 12.30 dinnertime, so maybe there is either no game next weekend or as you say it is the Monday night game.Maybe second choice game could be early kick off on the Saturday or Sunday morning (can't remember which time ITV 4 actually starts). Or Monday night game if there is one.
Im confused, no uk bidder or no uk bidder met the price la liga wanted? Kinda dumb if there is money there. Its not what they want, but beggars cant be choosers. They should give all the matches to ITV, grow the audience in the free to air market. Stupid bastards.No UK tv for La Liga next season. Fecking joke.
