Default Channel 200

Well done to the SS Team on Channel 200 - the picture looks brighter and the content is excellent. It is such a pleasure to watch the channel with its new dominant colour (Bright Blue) together with the channel being in HD quality as well

Everywhere else in Africa, there are 5 daily LIVE CROSSINGS to SKY SPORT NEWS on the Blitz channel except for SA. What continent is SA in?

To the normal 3 crossings, they have two more daily slots :
20:00 - 21:00
23:00 - 00:00

Every single day

If I remember correctly, years ago Sky Sports News was on for the whole day

SS - Maybe we can get a response from you'll as to why ROA have so many timeslots of Sky Sports News and yet SA only has 2 I think, morning and afternoon

Maybe the same story as with other British content, it's been taking years to start coming right...

Unless I'm mistaken I think we have .... four timeslots for Skysports News. These are at 06:00; 12:00; 18:00 and 23:00. Personally, unless there's some big breaking sports news I'm quite happy with this. To have this channel showing on more than those four occasions would just mean repeats of the same sporting news over and over. Yes, if there's some sport's event on then there will be updates but that's about five minutes of footage every hour. For the rest it will be repeats of earlier news items.

That's my take on it and I may be wrong.

Just as most rights we buy are carved differently for SA and Rest of Africa, so is our contract with Sky Sports.
Our contract with them for SA is different to the one for ROA hence the difference in daily live crossings.

Yes here in SA it's either 6pm or 11pm depending on the day of the week, not both. Take your point about "repeats" of news, but given that on Blitz it's repeats of the same news all day anyway, I would also love a bit more Sky Sports News mixed in again... maybe one day.

Then Ryan, unless you on some different package to me, I'm Premium, I get to see Sky Sports News at 06:00, 12:00, 18:00 and again at 23:00. This during the week. I often watch it so I really don't know why you say it's only shown at 06:00 or 23:00. There have been the few, VERY VERY FEW, occasions when one or the other of these times I've shown hasn't had the programme but that has been few and far between. We ARE talking of channel 200 on the decoder?
