Radio coverage of Football League matches

Post by Kairdiff Exile » Thu May 25, 2017 2:26 pm

This doesn't strike me as good news. Bit more information here.

Although I think BBC Radio Oxford will still have live coverage of games for those in the Oxford area, I'm concerned to see the Football League not recognising the value they get from the BBC.


EDIT: The club have confirmed that BBC Radio Oxford will retain live commentary rights.

As above, i'd hope that Radio Oxford keep local commentary rights so that the iFollow service for people living outside of the broadcast area have an experienced commentary team.

Glad that RadOx still have local radio rights. I assume this will be the commentary on the new iFollow service (old Yellow Player) - not really sure how that's going to work unless I've missed it? The last email I got just said:

"At the anniversary date of your initial payment, your subscription will end. At this point you will need to purchase a new iFollow package, the format of which will differ from the traditional Annual membership that you have subscribed to until now."

ie the price is going up.

Not quite sure how RadOx are still allowed to broadcast commentaries, reading that article on the Bristol City site. Would they still be able to do play-off matches/league cup matches?

Also: Carabao Cup - wtf? I suppose Rumbelows wasn't exactly a glamorous sponsor either...
