Re: NFL Week 16 - IN GAME
Ryan, have you heard that FIVE are discontinuing their entire American Sports programming? They will see the NBA season out, but that's it. NHL is immediately discontinued, NFL after San Diego/Denver, and no MLB next year.
Obviously, as a Sky subscriber, I don't care apart from the loss of the only live NBA game we get on TV each week. Now it's just internet for NBA.
This was a message from Mike Carlson posted on NFLUK
"Five have decided to drop their late-night American sports studio shows. This means that the last three regular season games with be our last ones. The NHL has already been cancelled, NBA will finish their season, and MLB will not resume next season.
It is a cost-cutting measure, so if a way were to be found to pay the costs of studio production, these shows could return, but that's a long-shot at present.
I'll be doing the Super Bowl for the BBC, of course.
You could voice your disappointment to Dawn Airey and Robert Charles at Channel Five. They were supportive of the shows in principle, but couldnt justify the expense during a retrenching."
