Who Else is OVER Ch 10's pathetic m/sport scheduling

Pls see my response in Moto GP ...I figured this was worth its own discussion.

Below is a response to the consistent poor scheduling of MotoGP(in particular) and other motorsport on Channel 10* in recent years.

I.E. such as yesterday - 4/11/18 when their (ch1) own online program guide gave out a start time for the Malaysian MotoGP as 4.30pm (EST) in Qld.
So When i tuned in ready for the telecast, well it had well and truly finished and some televisual pflaffl like IFish was on. So I then checked the published weekend papers guide and well looky here and F me !
It was published as a 3.30pm (EST) start time. Like an hour earlier!! 3.30pm start.

Below is a Copy my post yesterday on the MotoGP Thread ...elsewhere on this site....
__________________________________________________ ______________________
I just re read this.
My Apols as its a incoherent rant.
You've got to accept that I was White Hot when i punched it out...
No I wasn't ...I was RedHot ...glowing even....
In fact if I was a 300 2T, I would've been Pinging right thru out the rev range !
Modded Head Squish Band and All....I Don't Care what mods have been done
I would've been pinging bad.
Note for Nutty - I refer to Detonation, not Pre-Ignition.. Ok
__________________________________________________ _____________________

Fact is I've been spewing for the last 2 years as Ch10 and its Board have engineered their own 'Bottom Of The Harbour' campaign for motorsport on their own channel. IMHO.
Yes they do still show a few (?) rounds live of each discipline. Probably so as to -
say / support / contractual obligations / cover their derrieres & all bases - 'Look No one watches this on free to air anymore!
So that They can then choose to replay (not Live cast) the races at typical times such as 2am in the morning to further sink the ratings to the 'Bottom of the Harbour'.
And voila look we cant justify telecasting it anymore....we'll have to let it go !..... to .....

"Oh I'm from Fox Sports, we show that sorta stuff...maybe you could let us have the rights... seeing as its worthless!

I said elsewhere that IMO....
Lachlan Murdoch engineered his way onto the board of 10, simply to snatch all motorsport for Fox Sports to control its broadcast in Aust....[/QUOTE]



** For the record and so that fact is the basis here I rang Ch10 Sydney
And the fact yesterday as I'm told is the organisers brought the race forward 2hours due to weather conditions. So fair enough.
BUT where was their an onscreen message after 4.30pm (EST) to advise of the sudden program change? Did anyone else see it?
Those with the MotoGP package ....was it true the race was brought forward on the days schedule? Time wise how many hours forward?

Either way it won't diminish my attitude to Channel 10ˆ.
And yes for the record The Switch Person and the National Program Scheduler were indignant, Unhelpful, Not forthcoming with sound reasoning# and as is common nowadays very resentful that anyone would have the gall to call and advise their feelings.


# It was put forward by Ch10 that the reason for the scheduling policy change during the last 2years IS due to MotoGP, F1 AND V8's have all changed the licence conditions of broadcast for their sport. All have done the same at the same time ??
Which is to restrict 10 from showing all races live - as they have been for decades. On numerous station other than and as as well as 10.
I call BS. right there.

ˆˆ And what is this stupid station ID change about ? ...
Channel 1 / 11 is now Channel10BOSS
Channel 12 is now something like Channel10PEACH ??? HUmmph
Makes about as much sense as caning the live motorsport !

I know.
Been streaming MXGP for 2years. Seems I will now watch Motogp the same.

Rider is you cant always 100% be certain of finding an online source when you want it.
For instance Hunter Lawrence had a good result in MX2 in Switzerland this year.
Be buggered if I can find a full race replay of both motos......some 2 months later!

Someone must have made a multimillion$$ decision to go from blue to red. Wonder how much they are buying/paying for the monster jam's from 5 years ago?

quote= JJW "will use another online source tonight."
Exactly: It's all there. 1280p is a bit harder, maybe?

Edit: Google won't give you results.
Try: https://duckduckgo.com/html/

If your ISP blocks it/that use Google DNS
Proxy url https://unblocked-pw.github.io/

Edit2: I utilise this little DNS Jumper almost daily:
https://www.sordum.org/7952/dns-jumper-v2-1/

Edit3: Some/many of those "providers" are unscrupulous:
They will spam you with "pop-ups" etc. PM me to suss it.

Edit4: I've been hit with a "Microsoft Security Alert"
Easily fixed: Task Manager Live: I'll Kill the ****ers.

Edit5: These two sites below are what I mainly use:
It's a big-bad World out there... Tell us how you go.

I'm a Qualified Motor Mechanic too Motoxfox... In a/some past life... circa 20 years ago.
I'm certainly not smart; but-then we don't have to be "smart", just smarter than others.
