  1. The only fox sports news show i watch is NRL Tonight and i have to admit it was jarring. The HD channel used standard opening graphics not HD, symbols were in wrong places on graphics; poor megan didnt know where to look when trying to talk to the person on the big screen next to her, the ticker on the bottom was slightly larger yet words couldn’t quite fill the line. Was this filmed in Melb now too? Because normally NRL Tonight has at least one guest in with the host as they share the studio but Bryan Fletcher was fairly bland in the link and seemed to have trouble talkingm they also played random clips that didnt match her speaking. Happy for the channel to make changes but i felt bad for the love host Megan trying her best. Wish they kept all fox league shows in that same studio.

    David is fox league still based in the same place as last week or did they move too? Thanks 😉

  2. Based on the EPG there are a lot more live broadcasts now than before – in fact it extends to 1am. Will be interesting to see if that is accurate.

    Also not sure on the need to have a distinction between ‘Full Time’ and ‘Extra Time’ based on the night of the week …

  3. Just noticed that the sky news sports reports now come from fox sports news much like the weather reports . Hopefully the red button sports updates aren’t affected as the sky news ones were more up to date than the fox sports ones . In fact it hasn’t been updated for weeks and of course you now only get it on iq3 and not the 2
