Never to the dark side

City live on telly on Sunday? (Merged)

Recommended Posts

Not wanting to put any one off going to Hull on Sunday.

In my opinion if Derby lose at Swansea on Wednesday night

City Derby and the Boro will be the live games

There are two Premiership games kicking off at 2pm on sunday

With Huddersfield v Man Utd being the televised game

I think it’s a given John, even if Derby only draw. The automatics are decided, the relegations decided so unless FLDC win tonight, the only action is 6th place.

Against that, it’s Sky. And Leeds have a game.

2 I reckon. Huddersfield v Man U is on at 2pm. Expect it will be Derby and Boro game.

They normally only show two games on the final day, I think.

Assuming Derby don't win tonight (:fingerscrossed:) and there's something to play for, then they'll definitely show the Derby game. Hopefully they'll then choose us over Boro, but probably not. 

If, however, Derby win tonight, then everything in the whole of the Championship will already be decided going in to Sunday. In which case, I assume they'll just default to showing the Leeds and Aston Villa games!

Nah they will concentrate on title! Norwich and Sheff Utd will be live. Plus just the derby game in play off race 

Not a chance of us being one of the main games

The title is still up for grabs so those two games are nailed on for coverage

Then it would work down the order of league standings, so at best we would be 5th choice

Will the rest of the games not be on the red button? :dunno:

Thought it covered all games not kicking off at 3pm on a Saturday?

Might be wrong on this but surely it'd be treated as if it were a Saturday, all kicking off at same time so no red button.

However they seem to keep changing it so who knows really!

The only reason that Saturday 3pm games are not shown on the red button is that it's illegal to show live football on the TV between 3-5 on a Saturday so no reason why they couldn't...

But yeah, the whole thing hasn't exactly been transparent!

I reckon they will show the title deciding games. If not can't see past it being Derby Vs West Brom & Rotherham Vs Boro since we are the rank outsiders now.

Maybe the red button might be a shout although that'll mean watching at home instead of the pub since the lovely people at Sky decided to remove that feature for Landlords.

Was it a Sky led decision or more that clubs were unhappy about it?

Red button in pubs aspect I mean.

I'm not sure, they just removed it without notifying publicans.

If Derby do lose then surely a beam back will be put on?

This goes back to the discussion last week about Bristol City getting as many supporters in the ground?

Free coaches fill that away end !

I thought it was an EFL decision rather than Sky, due to concerns about attendances? Although i may be wrong...

Spot on- such an important game too potentially, you would think and hope...

On that note, saw on Matchday thread, that Millwall are subsidising coaches to Wigan Sunday, £5. Nothing riding on it!

Also noticed that Nottingham Forest owner did free coaches to QPR Saturday. Plus refunding anyone who had already got coach to QPR away as 2nd part..Nothing riding on it!

Now he is a colourful character let's say and Millwall is a club with a chequered history let's also say but fair play to them both! Nothing riding on it, don't know Millwall reasoning but it was a thank you to the fans by him basically.

If it comes to it that we're still in it especially, the club really should do this for Sunday. Commission some extra coaches too if possible.

I think the red button option is down to the home club. Didn`t we refuse to allow the Brum game to be on and didn`t Boro do the same when we played up there?

 

If that is the case there`s no way Hull will allow it given their crap attendances.

Any chance of a beamback broadcast to The Gate for those that cannot travel to Hull? Would be good considering we have a beamback to use.

Haven’t we got three to use? Could we beamback the Hull, Derby & Boro games on separate screens?

We have got three to use, you are correct.. I would say not as we will only need to focus on City and there will be fans who will be on their phones checking every second.

I thought I heard they would show 3, must have dreamt it. Would have been good , all 3 involved on live.

Everyone can watch the game on BCTV with a VPN, it really isn't rocket science 

Out of interest which one do you use? I used to use Tunnel Bear are there any better ones about?

VPN Melon it's free and reliable. Easy to swap servers if required. 

Android only though. 

I have mirrored the screen onto the TV but I find it very stuttery.

It looks like it’s not on ifollow as Hull seem to have their own channel as do we. Whilst you can’t cast BCTV you can always play it on your laptop and connect to your tv with an HDMI cable. If that helps.

Yeah I heard that as well. Not sure why we weren't mentioned. Surely if you're trying to make something sound even more dramatic, which it is, you'd say it's a 3 way race for 6th... But obviously we're not as big as boro or Derby clearly, hence why we didn't get the mention. Strange.

"Sky Sports understands that it will be either Frank Lampard's Derby County or Middlesbrough confirming the final playoff place today" surely?
