Channel 7afl coverage

Why channel 7 bothered paying $700 million for the rights to broadcast AFL has me beat. It is a friday night and like alot of people I would like to wind my week down by watching a game of football. But yet again I am stuck with you broadcasting some D grade movie. I would imagine with digital television now and your 5 so called different channel 7's you could put the game on live but no you can't even do that. So much for getting the rights to put AFL in everyones house on a Friday night even when there is no rugby league for it to get thrashed by.

      2011 and once again channel 7 has let down the mass of AFL fans in QLD, with their complete disregard of the highest rating sport in Australia. Its time for the AFL to step in and demand some coverage in the northern states especially with the introduction of the Gold Coast Suns. It may be time for Mr Demetriou to man up to Channel 7 and demand that the Northern states are included in broadcasting.

      I actually just moved over from Brissy. While I was in qld i found that having foxtel I was able to watch most if not all pies games live or slightly delayed. The coverage in a rugby league state is better than a pure AFL state. That is rediculous.

      Its the same in WA. Unless you support the budgies or wanchors ofcourse. Last week arguably the biggest game of the round, collingwood/carlton, was not televised on 7 until 1145pm sunday night, while the local derby was telecast both on foxtel and 7. This week, as has happend twice already this season, and will happen several times yet, the pies game will not even be telecast in this state. We are no the only fans that have this problem in WA. The AFL needs to pull their collective finger out and yank the broadcasters 7 and 10 into line and demand that all games be telecast at a reasonable time, if not live. Both broadcasters have numerous digital channels at their desposal and yet they choose to show rubbish/repeats and programming no1 even watches.

      Agree .Opening game of the year 2010 Richmond v Carlton cannot find any free to air TV coverage at all according to AFL website. ( Disclaimer for following tirade if info on website is incorrect, but then again why, if any body with any brains would you get Big Pond to host your website ) Trying to contact AFL direct is impossible. Have they been declared a protective species or what Who will be the first to complain when the review of sports telecasts gives more to pay TV . The commercial stations who pay big money, then dont telecast what they paid for, thats who! Could go on about developing AFL in non AFL states, but I think I am in the wrong forum here. If channel 7 & 10, who have the free to air rights at the moment, were serious about development, ... who am I kidding its all about moneyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy

      The AFL should make decent programming (respectful to fans in all states) a condition of the contract. The Seven network obviously doesn't want this code to be successful in this state. They could argue that they don't get the numbers. I'd say that they'll NEVER get the numbers if they show a three hour coverage that starts at the ridiculous time of 1AM.

      I agree with the negative comments regarding channel 7 and the AFL matches being delayed at finals time. I am fed up with the free to air channels in Qld treating AFL fans with contempt.
      What is worse is that I understood part ofthe deal between the AFL, the free to air channels and pay TV was that if the free to air channels werent showing a match live the pay TV would show the match live.
      Even though the match tonight is being televised 1 hour late it is not being shown on pay TV til 1130 pm.
      I have just sent an email to the AFL to complain about this disgusting state of affairs.

      It's the AFL finals & you can't even have the footy LIVE!!! Instead you have 'Better Homes & Gardens' on which i am sure can miss out the next few weeks to have the footy LIVE!!! What is wrong with you, the audience wants the footy LIVE especially when it comes to the final times.

      Come on channel 7 pick up your game or give up the rights to have the footy!!!

      You suck when it comes to programming the footy!! Even this Sunday final will be on a delay!!! Afraid you will stuff up on air...who cares...HAVE IT LIVE!!!

      Channel 7, your camera angles for the coverage of the AFL are terrible! People watch like to have fluency to the angles, switch from long to closeup to a stadium shot then to a shot of the crowd is not what people watch for. Instead of showing us how many cameras you have set up around the ground during the play of the ball, why not keep your cameras pointing at the ball and the players!

    Channel 7saturday morning television

    On a usual Saturday morning my children wake up at 6am and start watching My friends Tigger & Pooh, Handy Manny then Saturday Disney and to my disgust this morning after handy manny had finished we were advised that Saturday Disney's timeslot has been change to 9am due to Sunrise being on. Not sure if you are aware but children do not watch Sunrise, not even i an adult watches sunrise. Saturday morning was the only morning we could wake up and not have to watch news, and watch something fun like saturday disney. For Saturday disney to start at 9am, this does not suit many families, there are dance classes, swimming lessons, little athletics and many more classes parents take there children to on a saturday morning as work comittments do not allow for us to do these during the week. So now unfortunatly my children will have to miss out on their favorite show...Thanks channel 7 you have done it again...I guess we will just have to switch over to the abc or channel 10 as they tend to market for children...not happy!!!

        It is the only day that on channel 7 you don't need to watch it.
        Who wants to watch sunrise everyday of the week.
        Honestly its not the best show - it doesn't cater for everyone
        Change back to making channel 7 for everyone
        Children wake up early NOT at 9 and do not want to sit through hours of boring sunrise.

      Channel Sevenaustralian open tennis coverage

      I would like to complain about Channel Seven's loss of tennis coverage during the Roger Federer game tonight to pause for the News, Today tonight and Home & Away. Yes I can understand pausing for the news however for the other two surely they could wait another week? Also I notice on Seven Two at this time was full house (some twenty years old). Why can't Seven switch their tennis coverage to Seven Two whilst they pause for the news and co so matches can be seen uninterrupted instead of replays of old shows.

          I agree!! Absolutely disgraceful! In Perth, channel 7 interrupted the Federer match at 3:30pm (third set) only to take us to …. Hannah Montana! When I called channel 7 to make a complaint I was told by ‘Josh’ …

          “We (channel 7) had broadcasted the match an hour longer than was originally planned. You can see the results on 7 News at 6pm - and we will continue the match at 7:30pm”

          Good one channel 7!! Ruin the anticipation!!! Next thing you know you’ll be telling the kiddies Santa isn’t real.

        Why Channel 7 are we forced to continually watch mediocre programs like today tonight and home and away while the major tennis games are being played?
        First, you miss Sam Stosur in her last game...how patriotic around Australia Day. Now we can't watch Federer, but at least we get to learn of some insurance scam by some half-wit. Please give the rights to another station next year. Poor.

            I want comment on terrible quality of tennis broadcast these days. Pl pl pl pl concentrate on the area of play ..not on the individual players. The camera shot on the court arena is done only after the player tosses the ball from closeup camera shot. This is unnecessary since constant change of cameras...angles etc brings headache. Morever, the movement of the other player can be best appreciated as the server begins to serve. Sometimes the cort area is focused in such away, say at 15 deg angle, even after the rally we never know who has son the point!. The best angle to focus is perhaps 30 deg angle, which is normally done, so that the viewers can appreciate the game fully. Presently its likd auota system whete all shots are accommodated just because they are there. Its desired that 4 seconds before the player serves, the entire court area is focussed. I think its a crime to change the camera shot if the player misses the first serve.. pl continue with the same camera shot for the next serve. Any body listening?

            Rob in Adelaide Jan 31, 2010

            I refer to the TV coverage of the Australian Open tennis by Channel 7. As a longtime fan, I have been most unhappy with it and I was not at all surprised to read newspapers reports stating that crowds were up at the tennis but that ratings were down for the 7 coverage.

            What follows are the issues:

            1. During the tournament there were too many times when the tennis was filled with endless and repetitive "hot shots", trivia, etc. These moments, before matches, after matches and between matches, were certainly avoidable, especially in the first week. There were other matches that could have been shown. What happened was an insult to the audience.

            2. The one- network monopoly of the 2010 Australian Open this year meant that the coverage was less than adequate.

            3. The commentary was uncritical and at times inane . When matches were poor, or when players were playing poorly, there was no honest appraisal.

            4. Indeed, there was too much talk. When on TV, it is better to let the images talk. The silence is instructive.

            5. The self-promotional push for future TV programs was irritating in the extreme.To actually have the commentators also "plugging" what's coming up "after the tennis" was commercialism at it's worst.

            6.The lack of LIVE coverage at prime time in Adelaide, S.A. If free-to-air stations such as 7 aren't going to show sport live (and live means across Australia no matter what the time zone) then pay tv should be able to offer it to the public. Then those viewers who wish to pay to watch live sport such as the Australian Open can do so.


            Hope the rights go to Channel Ten in partnership with Fox sports whenever Seven's rights expire.

          To whom it may concern,

          I would love to know what planet the south australian channel seven tv line up bosses live on, who in there right mind would leave the tennis to go to the news deep into a 5th set of a quarter final tennis match. This is the third day in a row you have changed during a game to the news. If somebody wants to watch the news they will go to channel 9, if they want to watch sport which most australians do (As we love sport) they will stay with seven. Does anyone in the management have any commencence, why host the tennis if you cant deliever. Its about as bad as your afl coverage, bloody hell channel seven when will you finally get in touch with what australians want to see, I wonder how many people have the same view I do, I bet lots and lots!!!

              Channel 7 disrespecting the GAME of TENNIS.
              1.
              Channel 7 SHOWING THE AUSTRALIAN OPEN COVERAGE IN SD ONLY.
              I have fox sports HD, and will be watching tennis mostly on there because the quality is
              10x better. Channel 7 CAN broadcast in HD on their 7mate channel, but chose to run sloppy re-runs and b grade comedies instead.

              To make this decision is RIDICULOUS and infuriating as 7 has the rights to the most popular matches.

              The worst thing is- the difference is unbearable after seeing the quality of HD and knowing 7 CHOOSES not to show the AUSTRALIAN OPEN in HD (for gods sake) is really really really bad. PEOPLE LIKE TO SWAP BACK AND FORTH, and see as much as they can. It is sickening everytime you try to switch back to 7's coverage.

              Channel 7- you are losing respect from viewers, sponsors and advertising as a network in general by not giving people the highest quality possible and especially because it is by choice!

              2.
              Channel 7 AMOUNT OF ADVERTISING AND PROGRAMMING DURING THE AUSTRALIAN OPEN
              At every given moment, channel 7 goes to an ad. Whether its to promote one of the sponsors, or something of 7's it is so disgusting and infuriating that EVERY moment they are throwing in ads.
              One of the best things of tennis is the downtime moments, change of ends etc. and great commentary that is possible during these times, for analysis of players etc. 7 doesn't realise this and shows no respect for the game or the players, who have given their time this year to help with fundraising efforts for QLD.

              3.
              Channel 7 LOUDNESS of COMMERCIALS
              Not only do channel 7 advertise at the slightest of slight chances for a snippit of advertising- (and I dont know why because they aren't even spending money on HD coverage...)
              These ads are noticeably louder that the coverage. It is not because the Tennis is a fairly quiet program- and there fore the difference is quite noticeable- you actually HAVE TO PHYSICALLY TURN DOWN THE TV FIVE OR SIX levels to make the ADS level. This is noticeable on other channel 7 programs also even the news and evening programming. Some other channels are also having their ads louder. If anything ads should be made to be 5-10% lower level than the television programs to counteract this.


              In conclusion channel 7 and their Australian OPEN tennis broadcast is completely disrespectful to the players, sponsors/advertisers and most importantly 'us' the viewers. I have seen many similar complaints in my research on the web and there is a non straight forward process to even complain to channel 7 directly- nothing directly via internet OR PHONE which is completely rude and convenient for them only.
              I would ask that you pass this e-mail onto channel 7 on my behalf and I hope that before the first day of the Australian open is finished that ALL of these 3 things can be rectified. It is ludicrous that in 2011 these things are even happening to complain about.

              G'day Rhett, you have a few that the majority of Austrlians would have. Unfortunately Channel 7 is the rival channel of channel 9. Have you noticed that they have the news at the same time and today tonight at the same time as a current affair. Unfortunately 7 find shows such as home and away and a special of the brangelina split more important than an international sporting event. If they want to broadcast home and away they should make 7 sport a seperate channel and show the tennis on that channel for the remainder of the tournament and use that channel for AFL during the winter

              I posted one similar tonight after they paused for the news whilst Federer was playing. I suggested that they move the coverage over to seven two during this time instead of showing replays of old shows (full house - some twenty years old).

            Channel 7 Australiaaustralian open tennis coverage

            I would like to complain about the poor coverage of the Sam Stosur vs Serena Williams tennis match on 25th January. Whilst it is inconvenient that the game started right at news time, and the showing of the news is fair enough, but it is unbelievable that Channel 7 would then not go straight back to the tennis at the end of the news. Instead they insisted on showing Today Tonight then Home and Away on the one night of the year that an Australian woman is playing Serena Williams in an Open...it may never happen again. Surely as a special occasion, and on the eve of Australia Day, Today Tonight and Home and Away could have been postponed for one night. If previous form has anything to go by, the match will probably be shown after the 7.30 mens match, probably starting at midnight!!!
            It is unacceptable that a TV station says it is covering the tennis and then doesn't show live the one game that the whole country wants to watch. Clearly free to air TV cannot be trusted to provide proper sports coverage.
            Ironically I have not been able to find a phone number or a mechanism through the Channel 7 web site to lodge this complaint.

                Totally agree Australian television is abysmal. Recently my wife and I counted 31 channels in Melbourne about 24 featured home shopping. The networks conned the Government saying there would be improved content going digital. WHAT A LIE. The best thing to emerge out Australia's pathetic network television is our discovery of Youtube. We now watch old movies, TV shows, documentaries when we want to and it's free. Goodbye channel 7 and 9!!!. My advice dump Free to Air, buy a Mac AppleTV and watch everything you want on YouTube.

I know you need to get revenue to keep things viable and make a profit but be fair and respect us all and you do have a separate channel for shopping and why don't you get one for sport who cares about horse racing.,

              Channel 7 NSWtennis coverage

              I really enjoy watching the tennis especially when the aussies are playing.
              Today however because of a men's match that lasted just under 4 hours the following woman's match with Samantha Stosur was on for approximately 5 mins before they took it off to play the news. Now I understand the news is important, however surely they can just give major headlines etc and then return to the tennis. I think it is disgusting they plug the match all day and finally it comes on and the viewers are unable to watch it. If you want to have the coverage of tennis then do the right thing and allow viewing of the matches. I am at this point extremely annoyed and hope next year someone like Foxtel pick up the coverage so I can watch uninterupted tennis.

                  Chris bath tonight (7-4-10) said that gordon brown went to the queen to ask permission to disolve parliament. they dont ask permission, they tell the queen as a courtesy! remember parliament went to war with the monarchy. the queen is a figure-head only. the people rule! please get your facts right and stop saying things for news effect! she is still queen of australia too, although one would'nt think so, if one believed the things you news channels report. and - we dont ask permission to hold an election either!

                  What's even funnier is the today tonight article about wishing good luck to sam stosur and talking at great length about venus williams knickers while sam stosur is actually playing - followed by the breaking news that children may be abducted if you don't keep an eye on them at the shops. they relocate the news/current affairs to outside rod laver to make a big song and dance about how they've got the tennis, then don't actually show any.
                  They seem to be using the tennis to advertise the collection of copy-cat home grown programs - airways, something-kitchen-something - and us dramas they show virtually the whole series of in the advert then cut to the next game which is about halfway through, while forcing the commentators to shoehorn in a reference to one of the aforementioned shows instead of commentating. back home the bbc show wimbledon across 2 channels, temporarily canceling some programs to make room and switching channels if the news has to come on. they also have the red button where you can select any match currently taking place - mixed doubles on court 22 - anything. they started this about 5 years ago... seriously what are these clowns at channel 7 doing - it seems like they can't get their head round the fact that sporting events - and especially tennis don't run to a schedule. if they don't want to show tennis don't bid for it. as in the uk, select sports event must be shown on terrestrial tv, but not exclusively, so them not allowing foxtel access simply wouldn't happen.

                  Yes couldn't agree more. I also just rang foxtel to ask why they don't show any aussie open while they show outside courts from wimbledon, us open & french - they told me channel 7 won't allow them the rights to show any matches.

                  Early in major tournaments a lot of the best matches are on outside courts as we aren't seeing federer wipe somone [protected]!

                  What is with that???

                  Channel 7 is from now on in my bad books...

                    It's not just the nauseating repeat of the same ads over and over -- like the useless snakeoil Blackmores and the incessant gambling app ads -- it's the fact that they actually cut off key points, sometimes nearly an entire game, just so they can get through all the ads. Channel 7 doesn't deserve to host the Australian Open.

                  I don't understand why Ghost Whisperer has a PG rating and is aired at 7.30pm! The beginning of every episode is really scary and my daughter has been having nightmares after catching the start of last week's episode. My daughter is 4 years old and 7.30pm is her bed time. These types of shows should not be aired before 8.30pm! I used to be an avid watcher of the Ghost Whisperer, but stopped watching as the episodes were becoming too gory / scary. I'm sure there are people who enjoy watching this show, but I just wish it wasn't on so early.

                      My daughters are 4 and 2. The only reason I would prefer Ghost Whisperer being on a little later is so I can have time to get the kids to bed and be ready to watch it. If the kids aren't in bed, so be it - I don't turn the telly on! I have that choice, I'm the parent. Kids will probably go off to sleep better and have a better night's sleep if they don't watch telly for at least an hour before bed time. At that time of night we're busy with dinner, stories, brushing teeth and winding down. Who has time to have the telly on with kids this age between dinner and their bedtime?? I wouldn't miss ghost whisperer for anything. Tonight the girls where in bed on time by a minute! But wait - where's the show? I'm REALLY missing it. Where is my show??

                    Channel 7advertising on screen while trying to watch a movie

                    While trying to watch the 8:30pm movie - Casino Royale on Sunday night 27th September YOU!! (channel 7) placed in the bottom right corner of the screen an annoying add showing the advertisment for Flashforward. This was infuriating for me and my family because we found ourselves constantly looking at it and could not concerntrate on the actual movie.

                    The placement of the add was in a position that made it dominate the lower right of the screen because it was large enough to be noticed like as it it was a subtitle for the movie we were trying to watch !!! IT SHOULD NOT BE THERE AT ALL !!! This is why people hate TV and get so frustrated with free to air TV.

                    The ADD was bold, noticable and in a position to be clearly seen and dominate the screen, you guys have to do something about this because I am not the only one complaining about it, try to understand the inconveniance of it, we were all so frustrated that we actually decided to watch Australian Idol on another chnanel because of it!!

                        Inappropriate advertisement for Fifty Shades of Grey - the uncut version showing a woman wanting to be handcuffed or bound.
                        The news before stated an 18 yo man was being charged with rape of a girl in her own home.

                        I ABSOLUTELY AGREE.
                        Someone should contact channel 7 directly, it was so riduculous. During a movie is the only time when there are no ads/logos popping up on the screen. It was so irritating! It's fair enough if they put it there for the first 2 minutes or so of the movie then take it off, but the whole movie?

                        don't get me wrong, i love channel 7 and i am looking forward to flash forward, saying this i did not appreciate it raping the bottom right hand corner of my TV for an entire day.

                        i think the massive signs that pop up at the bottom of the screen 30 seconds back from an add break are bad enough. no need to leave it entirely on the screen for the whole night.

                        I absolutely agree with the comments above. to try and watch a movie with a VERY ANNOYING ad in bottom right corner (NOT EVEN IN THE CORNER!) is INFURIATING!!!
                        I watch a variety of stations, and when i switched to seven to watch the bond movie - it pissed me off.
                        no movie is worth that BS!
                        I'm off to another channel...

                      Channel 7 Sports2009 afl finals delayed coverage and camera men complaint

                      To Channel 7,

                      I am one of many avid AFL supports who live in Sydney. I would like to put forward a couple of complaints about your coverage of the 2009 AFL finals.

                      Channel 7’s decision to show these Finals games with a 1 hour delay in Sydney.
                      The shocking camera work during the game.

                      Many of my Sydney friends and family follow non Sydney teams who have made it in to the finals this year - Crows, Collingwood, Brisbane etc. We are extremely disappointed that the games have been delayed an hour. Last week, the Crows played in a very close game with Collingwood and the fact that we are unable to watch it live ruined the game for these supporters. Because of the delayed the telecast, other networks were displaying the results on their news bulletins.

                      During the closeness of the game, my Mother switched it over for a split second and in that second that network had flashed the end score on the screen. People from interstate (who may I add were watching it LIVE) were texting results, people on facebook were posting messages – how are we in Sydney able to watch the game we love without it being ruined by the fact that the rest of Australia actually are able to watch it live!!!

                      You’d expect that if Channel 7 were the only network to cover the AFL finals, you would at least play it live... I believe Channel 10 in previous years played all finals LIVE! Even in Sydney!!

                      You would have a lot of angry viewers if you decided not to play the Grand Final live... These are important games, and most have been very very close. It would be nice to be able to watch them LIVE!!!

                      The second complaint is I think the Channel 7 camera men – or the producer or whoever is responsible for what the viewers see on the tv screen need to go to a course on camera work at the AFL. Too many close ups, half the time we couldn’t see where the ball was because they were still filming the last guy that had the football... It was all over the place and really annoying to see.

                      As you can see, my overall experience with watching the AFL finals on Channel 7 is not a good one. I hope that if you are continuing to be the only network to cover them in the future you would decide not to delay them, as there are many AFL fans in Sydney (Surprise surprise but not all Sydney siders are NRL fans...!!)

                      Regards,

                      Unhappy AFL fan.

                        Channel 7sunday night program

                        After watching last weeks Sunday Night programme at 6:30, Channel 7 (Sunday 4th May) regarding the vaccination debate i was disgusted with reporter Mike Munroe's behaviour.

                        I believe he was arrogant and opionated in his portrayal of this issue as he would interrupt and try to discredit the anti- vaccination supporters.

                        Vaccination is a contorversial debate and there needs to be more education for parents. It is the personal choice of parents to vaccinate and I felt that Mr Monroe was attacking parents who chose not to vaccinate

                        He presented a very bias debate because he expressed his personal opinion at times. He definetely failed at his job as a reporter is to present both sides of a debate in a impartial way.

                        A man of his experience should know better!

                              Very disappointed with how far behind Channel 7 is with the seasons of Once Upon a Time. In the USA they are on Season 6. It is a high rating show and I don't understand why its not on when Swamp people and trucking shows take precedence. If you don't want to show it, give the rights to another channel who will show it. Because you have the rights we can't even buy it on video.

                              Andrew O'Keeffe is not the right person to host this show. His abuse and talking over the top of guests he doesn't agree with is offensive. He should never be in a position of hooting a s show with news commentary.
                              This ignorant behaviour is now weekly, unfortunately., Channel 7 you heavenliest me and other viewers l know to Channel 9l

                            Channel 7change in 24 airtime

                            I've just gotten home from work, hoping to enjoy a night in watching 24. However, after looking at the Channel 7 website (TV guide section), I find out that 24 is not on Wednesday nights anymore, but has now moved to Sunday @ 10:30pm (an hour later than the Season Premiere last Wednesday).

                            I think I've lost count as to how many time Channel 7 has changed the time slot of 24 so many times (since Season 1) without "alerting" its audience. This is absolutely bull crap and Channel 7 should fire the person in charge of this.

                            My faith in Chanel 7 has dropped dramatically. In saying this, I hope Channel 9 regains its no.1 position in ratings.

                            A very unhappy 24 fan.

                                They then advertise 24 on Sunday at 10.30 only to start it at 11.15pm. Too bad for those that set timers. I set it to go 20 minutes over as they are hopeless with there times. Obviously need to start setting it over a hour later.
