BBC’s weird sporting scheduling last Sunday….

David McNarry’s not the only one hacked off with the strange meandering of the BBC’s sports agenda. Dependent up satellite version of BBC2 NI, I missed the whole of Beeb’s All Ireland Championship campaign… Apparently the Radio Times had billed GAA Analogue and the Finals day of the World Athletics Championship to be available on Digital. A transparently fair compromise, which the BBC did not follow through on. It’s not as though it’s not happened before… Meanwhile, on Sundays, those of us elsewhere on Sky will have to continue to get a BBC2 NI that’s not BBC2 NI…

Adds: it seems the GAA sold the rights to their games outside of Ireland to another broadcaster… so you have to pay ‘through the nose’ to watch the GAA in Britain…
