I think RTE and TG4 will be sharing the rights.





Setanta do not. I think they may have GP, French rugby.

I rang them yesterday wanting to cancel my subscription and the guy asked me why I wanted to cancel.





I told him my primary reason for signing up in the first place was for the magners league and now ye dont have that anymore. He said they have every game live (apart from the games in Italy) and he was able confirm that for me.....

I wish. It's simple, I have sky+ with multi room andthat includes the movies and sports. If you want ESPN and Setanta it's extra. I can switch over to UPC get the same package and multi room with the + and it'sa few euro's cheaper that sky also UPC are offering ESPN and Setanta as part of the standard package at no extra cost.

That's what I have heard, as well. It is hard to imagine that RTE will devote some much time to analysis as setanta did last year. I like setanta's panelists, so for me it is the best of both worlds.

my understanding is that the game will not be on live but will be shown when it is finished. So on a friday night a game at 8pm live on RTE etc will be shown at 10pm on Setanta.


However none of the games in Italy will be televised!

I wonder who RTE will have on the panel for the games??? Probaly Hook, Pope, and O Shea I'd say. They will probaly vary it though like the sunday game evening edition.


To be honest I can't seea massive wave of attraction for the Magners League...the vast majority of games are very poor, but I suppose we'll know soon enough.

If you'reinterested only in hearing the analysis ofone of the two teams on display, then RTE does a reasonablefor the Irish teams and BBC2W/S4C do likewise for the Welsh teams.RTE's best analysis is when two Irish sides are in opposition and dittofor the Welsh channels when 2 Welsh teams are involved. (Sky's analysis of the GPL is quite good because two English sides are involved - butthe same cannot be said of their HEC analysis.)


I can't speak for Satanta but I assume that their ML analysis isas jingoistic as that of the otherchannels.

Is it really all that difficult to check your facts prior to posting your lies, you are obviously on the internet while writing on munsterfans, a little check on google might not go astray. I mean if you said he has a job in England with the RFU while talking to me over a pint down my local in Woodgreen, who would I be to agree or disagree with you? But you have a vast amount of information at your fingertips and yet you chose to ignore it and type in the first thing that came into your mind. Tut Tut Tut, so please let this be a gentle prod in the right direction, and before opening your mouth, think, and make sure what you are saying is actually accurate and correct.

Thank you, much love.

Italian broadcaster signs up
24 August 2010, 10:30 am
By Marc Heywood
Celtic Rugby is pleased to announce that Italian Pay-DTT broadcaster, Dahlia TV, will be showing live Magners League games played in Italy next season.3Share
Established in January 2009 taking over the Telecom Italia Media Pay-DTT business and the related football rights and bandwidth contracts, Dahlia TV is the second largest player in the Italian Pay-DTT market, their signal covering 90% of the Italian population.
The four year deal will see Dahlia TV broadcast at least 19 matches from the home of either Aironi Rugby or Benetton Rugby Treviso during the regular league stage of the tournament. They will also show any Play-Off games involving an Italian team as well as the Magners League Grand Final at the end of May.


"We strongly believe that the Magners League is a wonderful product", said Fabrizio Grassi, CEO of Dahlia TV. "We aim to invest on it in order to make this product appealing and to make it stand out.


"Our idea is to promote the game in Italy, and enable our audience to watch all the matches by surrounding the game itself with the programme to enhance the strength of the league.


"As a demonstration of Dahlia's interest for rugby, many other tournaments will be transmitted during the next season 2010/2011."


David Jordan, Tournament Director for the Magners League, added: "I am pleased to welcome Dahlia TV on board, their partnership now ensures that Magners League games will be shown live in all our territories.


"Rugby is fast establishing itself as a mainstream sport in Italy, and this agreement affords the opportunity to fans across the country to watch the progress of their own teams in their inaugural season in the Magners League."

I've heard that Focsoccer Plus and Foxsoccer.tv are still in negotiations with the Magners League concerning the broadcasting rights. They hope to have a decision on this before the start, this Friday. Although they're confident they will get the rights in the end it could take up to a few weeks before the agreement is finalized.

I read this in an interview by Foxsoccers MD but can't find the source right now.

Just hope for the best and hopefully a decision is made asap.

RTÉ launches Magners League coverage
Monday 30 August 2010


RTÉ today launched details of its Magners League coverage marking the return of live Irish provincial rugby to terrestrial/free-to-air television for the first time in four years.


Beginning this Friday 3 September with Leinster's opening game of the season against Glasgow Warriors in Scotland, up to 35 live matches are set to be broadcast on RTÉ Two television this season, and for the next four seasons, as part of a new deal secured by RTÉ alongside fellow public service broadcasters TG4, BBC Northern Ireland, BBC Cymru Wales, S4C and BBC ALBA


Ryle Nugent, RTÉ Group Head of Sport said: 'This is a ground breaking agreement involving six separate public service broadcasters. In Ireland, RTÉ is sharing broadcast rights with TG4 to ensure that Irish audiences will be able to enjoy the Irish provinces in action every week.


'The Irish provincial teams are some of the best supported teams in Europe and we are delighted to play a key role in bringing the action to viewers free-to-air.'


Joining RTÉ's renowned rugby team of George Hook, Brent Pope and Conor O'Shea are former Irish internationals Donal Lenihan, Victor Costello and Frankie Sheahan, while new signing Daire O'Brien joins Tom McGurk and Joanne Cantwell to present Magners League Live across the season.


Looking forward to the new season RTÉ rugby analyst Brent Pope said: 'I'm delighted to be involved in the Magners League this season and the excitement of live provincial Irish rugby. I'm looking forward to watching Connacht, Ulster, Leinster and Munster live in action on RTÉ and seeing which provinces make their mark on the league this year."


In addition to live television coverage, RTÉ.ie will also simultaneously stream RTÉ's coverage within the island of Ireland while also providing a catch-up service on the RTÉ Player and an in-depth focus on the Irish province's campaigns, the latest news, live and on-demand video and audio, and incisive debate and analysis at www.rte.ie/magnersleague (http://www.rte.ie/magnersleague).


Magners League stories, fixtures, live scores, results and more will also be available on RTÉ Aertel and RTÉ Mobile at m.rte.ie/sport. RTÉ Radio will also feature Magners League coverage across FM, LW, DAB and online throughout the season


RTÉ's Magners League coverage adds to an already extensive range of sport on offer from RTÉ this season including live coverage of the Champions League, the Guinness Series of autumn rugby Internationals, the Republic of Ireland's Euro 2010 qualifiers and three European title fights for Irish boxers on Pro Box Live.

No harm but it does no harm to keep an eye on them
either. If TG4 were not showing any matches we all know
who'd get preference then and everybody would be
complaining.

For US fans here the response I got from Foxsoccer:

Thanks for contacting us.</span>

</span>

We believe that we will be showing the Magners League on our
website. This may not be finalised by the first games of the season this
weekend. If this is the case we should have them for the second weekend.</span>

Thanks Chrizzie for info on Fox - I emailed them myself but got nothing back yet. Lets hope that by showing them on their website they mean on TV. The fact that RTE is only airing them online in Ireland means airing rights in the US have some value.
</span>

At this point I'd be happy with a few games - I think we were spoilt here in the US with virtually every single Magners and Heineken Cup game involving an Irish province airing on TV. Often at odd hours to be sure, but its easy to avoid the result for a few hours</span>

11 out of 12 of munsters magners leaguegames will be on RTE TG4 between now and the New Year, the only exception being the away game V Glasgow as that is scheduled for the same night as Edinburgh host Leinster which is the televised game by the host broadcaster BBC Alba with RTEshowing it.


So Overall excellent news.....now as per another thread does anybody want to buy a season ticket?

I just had a crazy conversation with a sales guy at
Setanta.

I rang to subscribe and what an ordeal.

He tried to persuade me that Setanta would be showing
all of Munster's ML games and that RTE would only be
showing 6.

I asked if he was sure and after a lengthy debate he
admitted that the games wouldn't be live but would be
"as live as possible.' smileys/lol.gif This, he said, means that
games would be shown and hour to and hour and a half
after they had finished. b****x to that.

I told him that was good enough and that the package
was superfluous to my requirements. While I know he
has to try to keep a customer, he just wouldn't listen.

Anyway, if RTE, TG4, S4C etc are showing them, and
considering I will be at many of them, there is no need
for me to have Setanta because I only had it for the ML.

There was no telling that clown though.

Anyway, be ready if you are ringing them.

For anybody like me who hasn't yet gotten round to cancelling their Setanta, the Glasgow - Leinster game will be rebroadcast on Setanta Ireland at midnight. Handy enough, means I can watch the Ulster game first.

mr chips
4th-September-2010, 11:26
I get my tv through the Sky box and have never bothered with installing an ordinary aerial since moving house. I live in NI, which means I don't have a licence-payer's right to receive RTE in the same way that I have e.g. for BBC. This means that I'm used to Sky blocking the HEC highlights on RTE, which hasn't really affected me since I have a Sky Sports subscription. Similarly, soccer matches that are broadcast on RTE tend to be blocked, presumably because they're also on Sky Sports - however, having zero interest in soccer means this hasn't affected me either.

But last night I noticed that the RTE2 broadcast of the Leinster game was blocked. At the time I assumed this was a glitch, perhaps because they simply hadn't unblocked RTE2's soccer coverage that immediately preceded the rugby, presumably as that was also being shown on Sky Sports. But it has occurred to me that they might block the RTE/TG4 coverage of the Magners simply because they don't have exclusive rights to it within the UK. Anyone have a clue about this? If this is the case, I might have to get a terrestrial aerial after all! At least I can watch the Munster game on Setanta at midnight tonight, but I had intended to cancel it ...

I canceled Setanta last week. It was some ordeal, he was offering me packages left right and centre. For a finish I had to get thick with him and throw a few F's into him. Just wasn't getting the message. Anyway thought I had canceled and got a phone call a couple of days after once again. Told them I didnt want it anymoreand was becoming very fustrated that they wouldn't leave me cancel. Eventually I just said Im not interested in any offers and I just want to cancel, said my goodbyes and hung up.





Yesterdaythey rang again. Elaine from the outbound team she said her name was. She started offering me deals again, and like some above posters she offered me the 5 euro a month deal and told me I could cancel whenever I want. At this stage I was fuming, and told her I want to CANCEL NOW. She again offered me another deal and I had no choice only to let rip into her. Finally she canceled my subscription, but I never had so much trouble canceling somrthing in my life.


Anyone else have problems like this with them??

I canceled Setanta last week. It was some ordeal, he was offering me packages left right and centre. For a finish I had to get thick with him and throw a few F's into him. Just wasn't getting the message. Anyway thought I had canceled and got a phone call a couple of days after once again. Told them I didnt want it anymoreand was becoming very fustrated that they wouldn't leave me cancel. Eventually I just said Im not interested in any offers and I just want to cancel, said my goodbyes and hung up.





Yesterdaythey rang again. Elaine from the outbound team she said her name was. She started offering me deals again, and like some above posters she offered me the 5 euro a month deal and told me I could cancel whenever I want. At this stage I was fuming, and told her I want to CANCEL NOW. She again offered me another deal and I had no choice only to let rip into her. Finally she canceled my subscription, but I never had so much trouble canceling somrthing in my life.


Anyone else have problems like this with them??

yes and watch out if you pay by direct debit the feckers keeping taking the money.

I get my tv through the Sky box and have never bothered with installing an ordinary aerial since moving house. I live in NI, which means I don't have a licence-payer's right to receive RTE in the same way that I have e.g. for BBC. This means that I'm used to Sky blocking the HEC highlights on RTE, which hasn't really affected me since I have a Sky Sports subscription. Similarly, soccer matches that are broadcast on RTE tend to be blocked, presumably because they're also on Sky Sports - however, having zero interest in soccer means this hasn't affected me either.

But last night I noticed that the RTE2 broadcast of the Leinster game was blocked. At the time I assumed this was a glitch, perhaps because they simply hadn't unblocked RTE2's soccer coverage that immediately preceded the rugby, presumably as that was also being shown on Sky Sports. But it has occurred to me that they might block the RTE/TG4 coverage of the Magners simply because they don't have exclusive rights to it within the UK. Anyone have a clue about this? If this is the case, I might have to get a terrestrial aerial after all! At least I can watch the Munster game on Setanta at midnight tonight, but I had intended to cancel it ...



This is correct, only the BBC regionals and S4C have the rights to broadcast Magners games in the UK.


So even if you try to log onto RTE's website, you won't be able to watch if your computer has a UK IP address.


However BBC Wales and BBC Alba (the Scottish regional) do make thegames available online,so you don't have to miss out even if you don't have these channels.


The only drawback is that games like last night's Leinster clash come with a Scottish commentary.


I dunno if S4C will stream their games, but presumably they will come with a Welsh commentary.


Some programmes on S4C officially have a viewership of zero. It's very much a niche broadcaster.


John The Man drew bigger numbers than S4C, despite receiving no subsidy except the odd leftover steak from The Master Butcher. smileys/smile.gif

Feck. Cheers JPJ - so far am able to watch the build-up to the Connacht game on TG4, so hopefully it won't turn out to be a bit of a tease. AFAIK RTE Player is supposed to be viewable across the island of Ireland, but it makes no odds to me as I live in such a remote area that my broadband isn't capable of delivering live streaming.

EDIT - so far so good on TG4. I see it's your namesake refereeing!

Thought RTE panel was poor because of the sensationalist rantings of Hook. His first comment at half time was about the RWC 2011. What does that have to do with our first 40 minutesin the Magners league?


Why not comment on the hear and now?Performance of the weekend was Connacht maybe they should send Hook to watch them from now on as on today's display they clearly will have a huge contribution to how Ireland will perform next Septembersmileys/wink.gif

Watched on Setanta as Sky blocked the RTE coverage. Jaysus but Uncle Fred was absolutely shocking, worse than I've ever heard him. Aside from forgetting that he really needed to clear his throat from time to time, it was the usual stuff but just so much of it done so badly ...

- mispronounced names all over the place - "Sam Tui... Tuitu... Toopitoo".

- reporting the ref's decisions &amp; hand signals incorrectly - "and that's a knock on by Munster, but the referee has, aah, awarded the lineout to Atoni."

- forgetting who players are, and not managing to read his own team sheet - "a great run up the wing by, eh ... er ... number 14, eh ... Doug Howlett. The former New Zealander." (did nobody tell Doug that getting an Irish passport won't entitle him to play for Ireland?).

I have great affection for him as he was the voice of the Six Nations on RTE when I was a youngster, and usually that helps to draw a veil over the slip-ups that pepper his commentary, but he was truly, embarrassingly poor tonight. Really is time for him to hang up the mike.

The the fact that there is no sign of anything from either Friday or Saturday's matchesup their yet, while Friday's international soccer is on their, seems to confirm they will not have the full match coverage as it happened available.

Hook was a blathering idiot on the RTE analysis of the Munster game - the man is certainly prone to spouting sensationalist hyperbole simply to make a name for himself. The man has certainly lost my respect since he sold out to Sky - anyone remember his impassioned speech a few years ago on how television money/sky coverage was killing the game? And now he's plastered all over the place spouting nonsense about how wonderful Sky's customer service is etc...


Have to say however, for all its faults, it is nice to see the provinces games being covered again on RTE - certainly helps to give a sense of national 'ownership' as it were to the league. It seems to me, that the number of people watching the games over the weekend actually increased - given their accessibility on terrestrial television - surely that must be a plus for the league in general?

i doubt very much that anyone at sky has any idea what's going on - they'll just be saying what they think is going on. i hope the situation is that rte do have the rights and they've just ballsed up setting the restrictions. this has happened before - i recall an AIB Cup match that was blocked for part of a match until sanity prevailed...

BBC 10 September 2010 Last updated at 06:48 GMT


S4C given month to prepare financial plan</span>

S4C has endured a troubled period with the sudden departure of chief executive Iona Jones
S4C has been told by the UK government it has one month to prepare its financial plan for the future, the station says.

The Welsh language TV channel said the deadline had been issued during a meeting on Thursday with the Department of Culture, Media and Sport (DCMS).

A number of public bodies have met the DCMS, said the broadcaster, and the timetable was the same for them all.

More meetings are expected to be held during the upcoming weeks, it said.

The broadcaster has had a turbulent summer.

-The station, which is reportedly facing cuts of 25% in its £100m budget over four years, saw its chief executive of five years, Iona Jones, leave unexpectedly in July.
After the appointment of interim chief executive Arwel Ellis Owen, chairman John Walter Jones announced major changes in the way the station would be run.

The S4C Authority has also asked former Welsh Assembly Government permanent secretary Sir Jon Shortridge to carry out a review of the way the channel is run over six weeks.

Was their post match analysis on TG4 btw? forgot to check

[Pedant alert] ....it's Connacht.

I thought he looked very uncomfortable. I could almost hear him thinking 'Why didn't this happen in my time? What has Elwood got that I don't?' (Apart from 1 yr contracts!!)

Looks like he's not in contention for much in the way of coaching - wasn't Georgia, short-term, mentioned here recently?



I would have thought that it is obvious to all by now (&amp; most of all to himself) that he just isn't cut out for coaching (or at least being head coach).

In fairness Connacht is showing the form they had at the end of last season.

I think Bradley much more feels their current form is a heritage of his affords.

Chrizzie - I don't want to appear as being anti-Bradley. I do want to appear to be pro-'whatever's best for Connacht' (and by default Irish rugby.)

Bradley had 6 full seasons in charge - some of those in the good time economically. Elwood has one hand tied behind his back (1 yr contracts and no cash) and so far seems to be getting excellent results (I know it's early days yet.)

I just don't think Bradley is a coach - he has no great successes to speak of (open to correction) and some of the rumours from Connacht last yr were none too positive.

Best of luck to Bradley whatever he does.

I was just on the Magners league website, looking at the Munster Scarlets report, and at the top of the page, they have a match tracker. As you go over the match-tracker squares, it reveals the picture of who the tracker refers to...

i thought it was a noteworthy application...

well done magners...

I presume it is on other such match tracker websites...

that's been in place for a while now, ever since they re-did the website last season I think.
