Sky Sports faces schedule clash over Ryder Cup and London derby

Sky is set to screen the London derby between Arsenal and Chelsea and the final day of the Ryder Cup at the same time.

Sports fans who have Sky Sports as part of their digital TV packages face a tough decision on October 3rd 2010.

The bundle provider is set to broadcast both the final day of golf's Ryder Cup - in which Europe's best take on the US - and the north London derby between Arsenal and Chelsea.

With a scheduled kick-off time of 16:00 BST, the Premier League clash will get underway during what could be the deciding moments at the Celtic Manor golf course, leaving fans to choose which of the two sporting contests to watch.

Head of the PGA Sandy Jones refused to criticise Sky's decision to screen both major events.

"I don't think our audience will be affected. Sky do a good job for all of us," he was quoted by the Telegraph as saying.

Earlier this week, Sky revealed that the Ryder Cup will be one of the first events to be shown on its forthcoming 3D channel, which launches on October 1st.

Sky Sports - new season of Sports advert campaign - Sky tv in Spain

BSkyB has struck back at BT's attempt to lure sports fans to its TV service at heavily discounted prices, recruiting Eric Cantona for one of its biggest advertising campaigns of the year.

The "no compromise" campaign, which starts with TV advertising breaking today, features Cantona appearing to walk right through famous moments in sport such as Liverpool's comeback to win the Champions League final against AC Milan in 2005.


"Anything can happen in sport," says Cantona at the end of the TV ad. "The only certainty is you'll get all of Sky Sports on Sky."

As rivals including BT and Virgin Media aim to break Sky's stranglehold on football subscribers, following Ofcom's order in March that the latter had to drop the wholesale rate it sells Sky Sports 1 and 2 to rivals, the satellite broadcaster is aiming to position its overall sports offering as the best in the market.

"You'll only get all of Sky Sports with Sky," runs a voiceover, which ends by pointing out that Sky offers four sports channels as well as Sky Sports News, which is becoming a premium subscription channel like the other Sky Sports services.

BSkyB's campaign comes weeks after BT launched a major TV and print campaign featuring footballers including Michael Owen and the actor Kris Marshall, who stars in the regular "BT Family" ads, offering Sky Sports 1 and 2 at a steep discount.

Sky's TV campaign, which will run across the channels including ITV1 and Channel 4, will be supported by a large-scale campaign of press, billboard and digital advertising from 19 July.

Four billboards attempt to drive home Sky's superiority over rivals with big pictures of Cantona and lines including "The unmissable should be just that", "Compromise is not an option" and "What's the point of greatness if you cannot watch it?"

"[Fans] don't want to miss a moment of the sports they love, which is why we believe customers will respond to the authenticity of Sky Sports, a brand which has won the trust of sports fans following over two decades of ground-breaking coverage," said David Murdin, Sky's director of marketing for sport and news.

Five HD launched on Sky HD - Reception on Costa Blanca Spain

Five HD launched on Sky HD today.



The RTL-owned channel had previously shunned the offer of capacity on the UK terrestrial platform Freeview HD. Five, the last of the UK legacy broadcasters to launch a high definition channel, will broadcast a simulcast of its main channel featuring a mix of US drama and UK-originated series.

Charles Constable, Five’s Director of Strategy, said: “We broadcast so many high quality series shot in HD, such as Don’t Stop Believing and our line-up of great US dramas, so our schedule is really suited to fantastic picture quality. Five HD is a great addition to our channel portfolio.”

July:

Romeo Must Die 15/07/10 (HD)
