Was just wondering if anyone had heard if Saints might show their remaining matches on YouTube. If this has already been discussed I apologise.

I've not seen any discussion on this issue, it would seriously surprise me though if they did given BT sport pay for exclusive rights to live matches.

Had you heard anything to make you think this was likely?



Church's Stand - Block 20 - Row Q - Seat 700

Just thought that with games being played behind closed doors that the games may show via Saints own TV coverage. Do BT show every game played in full?

I presume that as there will be no conflict with tickets sales they may show all games. Certainly I can't see the club being allowed to show games themselves via YouTube or any other medium and conflict with BT's viewing figures.

I donít think the way for BT sports to reward the customers who havenít cancelled their subscriptions, is to go and show the games for free! Although if I had cancelled my contract I would be hoping the exact opposite.

The Prem site has all of the games in full (eventually), BT only show what they actually broadcast, as far as I know.

I would expect that all games will be televised, especially if they are going to be played at the same venue each week.

I think BT will show all the matches, maybe 1 on a Friday, 3 Saturday and 2 on a Sunday, with channel 5 picking up a couple for free to air simulcasts

Not sure if the channel 4 contract includes any of the remaining ECC matches

RugbyPass also manages to broadcast every premiership game, even when BT do not
