TDU Coverage

TDU Coverage

Postby feeltherush » Tue Jan 17, 2012 8:23 am

Hey All,

Just wanted to start a thread about the pathetic coverage of the TDU now that SBS aren't doing it and if we can let them know about it it might go some way to better coverage in the future (whether that the Channel 9 or any other commercial network).

The TDU deserves better than daily highlights at 11.30pm, who/how many people will get to this at such a ridiculous time? I don't even want to look at a TV Guide to see what they are putting on before it.

I think that the TDU are partly to blame (seeing as they sold the broadcast rights) and surely this isn't the best way to promote their event, Channel 9 also have a part to play for their scheduling.

It's a kick in the guts for SBS after all they have done for he TDU and cycling over the years.

If anyone else feels the same please send an email to the following adresses and let them know of our displeasure.

Agreed. It's pathetic. Especially when there was 110 000 people at Sundays race. Name a footy or cricket match that gets that attendance.

already under discussion its a national issue not confined to South Australia. maybe should look next time, did you really think in a cycling forum we would be happy with what's happening so far?
