Shafted to 7mate

100 posts in this topic

Disappointing to see our first prime time match of the season has been shafted to 7mate so that Channel 7 can have My Kitchen Rules on 7HD in Melbourne next Monday night. We can't take trick.

That cannot be right. 7 isn't gonna forego a Richmond game on FTA especially in the form they're in.

The lack of HD is the problem I think.

Whilst some might care. I wouldn't. Doubt the vast majority of average punters would. Better than not ?

I dunno man, you asked what the problem was, so I told you.  No skin off my nose as I'd prefer to trade in HD for no ads anyway.  This is the first year I've even had the option of watching footy in HD.

The problem is your average Joe will flick to channel 7 to watch the footy and if it's not on they'll think it's a Foxtel game. Most people still stick to 2, 7, 9, 10 and SBS, the secondary channels are still just that - secondary. People don't really scroll through them when channel surfing.

Not HD which seems to affect some more than others (I'm an other) and there's a reason secondary channels rate a fraction of the main channels each night. Casual observers won't budge, even for AFL with Richmond involved I'd reckon it's a good 50-80 thousand less viewers in Melbourne. That's less eyeballs on our players and our sponsors.

We don't have that many sponsors to see anyway. BOJ still blank

I'd be filthy if I was PJ. I go along every week anyway, so it doesn't hurt me, but in terms of my football club, the diminished eyeballs on this game is a massive, massive problem. I'd be mighty [censored] off at Channel 7. My Kitchen Rules? Jesus. When will reality TV rubbish end? (I know, don't tell me - when the Offsets are back and we can make proper Australian television again)

I reckon by that point they'll be flying. They are usually tuning up their beast at that point of the season in the lead up to finals. Pity we can't get the Sydney's and Freo's when they're ordinary.

The average Joe now realises there are more than the old 4 channels.

Those that watch MKR will

Those that watch footy will.

Why do you think channel 7 elected to put MKR on 7 and Rich/Melb on 7Mate?

I'd rather go to the game and watch in super dooper ultra high definition with full surround sound... But then I live 2000km away, so I guess I'll just watch on Foxtel HD (I don't even think it will make it into 7Mate up here!).

Same mate.  I'm too cheap to shell out for Foxtel HD though.  I begrudge having to have Foxtel at all as it is - footy is the only reason I have it.

Because mkr is 7's #1 show

Footy isnt. Mkr is about the casual nuff nuff viewer .

Footy is a specific category these days. 

7 was once ALL about footy in season. Its now just another bow in its quiver.

The absolute die hards will have hd on foxtel etc.

Average Joe doesn't care. Be happy enough to watch it on ' normal'  Tge average joe has been happy with SD for 50years.

I can understand a few will be miffed. Many won't give a [censored].

Really beside the point. It should be broadcast live in HD in 2017. The quality of broadcast between SD and HD is significant.

Thankfully I have my international pass, which is 1080p requiring only 5mb/s internet speed. It's a better quality than the TV HD broadcast and with fewer ads.

I thought 7 broadcast footy in SD even though it's normally  shown on their HD channel. Is that true?

Suits me! In regional areas 7Mate is HD. It's only SD in capital cities.

Seven in regional areas is pretty slack though. While Nine and Ten have an HD broadcast of their main channel (e.g. 8/80 and 5/50), Seven don't. And there's no 7Flix. Not that that's worth anything.
