Tanya Arnold on ‘huge’ BBC deal, potential audience & end of Super League Show

Post by josie andrews »

BBC presenter Tanya Arnold has hailed the new TV deal that will see Super League aired live by the free-to-air broadcaster for the first time.

The new three-year broadcast deal will see 15 games shown live each season, with ten on network TV with the rest across BBC iPlayer and the BBC Sport website. The corporation will also continue to show Challenge Cup games, including the men’s, women’s and wheelchair finals.

Castleford’s home clash with Wigan this Saturday will be the first to be shown on BBC Two, followed a week later by the World Club Challenge between the Warriors and Penrith Panthers.

Highlights will also be available the day after games on the BBC website.

“It’s fantastic, to have live Super League on the BBC is huge,” Arnold told League Express.

“I’ve very excited to be involved in it all.

“It’s a huge period for the sport now and there are so many people who just want to get eyes on the game and see what we all know – that this is a brilliant game.

“Channel Four did a great job over the last couple of years and hopefully we can kick that on even more.

“5:30 on a Saturday evening is a great slot and a big viewing time, so fingers crossed this is a really big year for the sport and it kicks on over the next three years.”

The deal and highlights package means that the Super League Show, which has aired weekly since 1999, will no longer be shown.

“Times move on, and this new deal, with the live games and the highlights packages, is great for the sport,” added Arnold.

“The highlights package on the website has huge potential. The BBC website gets 20 million unique views and is the biggest of its kind, so with that that, plus all the radio and everything else that’s going on, it’s huge.”

Who made the decision for BBC to show at 1730 on Saturday and clash with Sky Sports showing the Premier League?

Still think BBC was the wrong choice.

They can't be bothered mention rugby on the news when talking about sports.

Also with channel 4 we go free advertisement as any show Adam Hill was doing he mentioned rugby league.
These are two reasons not to trust people.
1. We don't know them.
2. We do know them.

Should we not be more concerned that it clashes with Sky's coverage of Catalans v Warrington?

I’ve just recorded both so I can watch them when I get back from Castleford 😊

I know it seems crazy to show games at the same time, maybe it’s just for this first week, we will just have to wait & see how it works out.

Welcome to the world of rugby league fans! If we're not complaining about the administrators, the refs, the commentators, the opposition, etc etc, then we complain about those who are complaining . . . says he, looking in the mirror :lol:
