Default primetime appreciation thread

Ignore the haters primetime, for those that got the channel with no **** ups the production was fantastic!

For standard def the picture quality was brilliant, having paul dempsey on was a masterstroke and ryan and paulie were brilliant analysits...I've subsribed to boxnation from day one but the punditry, production and picture quality is ****in shite.

Props to venus as well....

They taking the piss with 15 charge though but still better then nothing and better then the shitty production on boxnation

Good and fair post IMO.

In an ideal world we wouldn't need a channel like Primetime.

Sky would but more fights than they do and Boxnation, as a dedicated channel, would show the rest.

But for one reason or another this doesn't happen.

I am really disappointed with Sky's current attitude towards boxing (apart from the generally very good Matchroom shows) and I am becoming increasingly frustrated with Boxnations failure to fulfil their promises.

They both disappointed me when they didn't show the Hatton fight.

This isn't Primetime's fault though and for me to be annoyed with them because they 'beat' other channels bids to show the fight is silly, any anger should be aimed at the aforementioned channels.

Primetimes coverage was excellent.

They put together a superb team on the night and I have to admit it was far more polished than anything Boxnation have bought us so far.

On this evidence Boxnation need to watch their backs in my opinion.

I'm a big fan of Boxnation, but if Primetime pick up more of the bigger fights that appeal to the casual fans then the channel could be in real trouble.

One costs 15 a event and another 10 a month, of course a quality difference exists, because one has 10 times the budget to do so.

So let me get this straight, you would rather spend 15 everytime you need to watch a fight over 10 a month for 10+ fights a month. Getting hooked on Heroin will be cheaper than following Boxing under Primetime.

Other than not being on HD I was very happy with Primetime. I know that doesnt matter to some people but it does to me. I thought the pundit team was one of the best i have seen. Dempsey is class, Malliagnaggi and Rhodes are good pundits and has appropriate knowledge and background, Big Ron is quality and Darke and Woodhall is the best possible commentary team in the UK.

Still think for the US cards they should charge 10 or offer a UK leg. December 7th its Crolla vs Farrell promoted by Coldwell, and Brian Rose vs Sam Webbe for the British is the week after. I am sure they could have struck a deal to have these cards as a UK leg.

it doesnt look like Box Nation can compete anymore.

No you misunderstood me mate.

I really like Boxnation and for me it absolutely offers far better value for money, I will be with it for some time to come (hopefully).

The point I was trying to make is that the more casual viewers will rather pay fifteen pounds for the ocassional fight rather than a regular tenner.

If Boxnation allows Primetime to show the fights that appeal to a larger audience then they will lose alot of customers and will struggle surely.

The treatment I get over the telephone with Primetime is always shit, but I agree last weekend was put together pretty well.

Considering what our Yankee cousins have to pay each fight we do ok.

Dempsey is now freelance- I wouldn't be surprised if Boxnation or even Channel 5 snapped him up. Is Keys still with Boxnation?

Is this the same channel that could not wait to stick a mic in Ricky's face? The same channel, where the man was clearly heartbroken and hurt, and all the TV corp wanted to do was get that mic in his face and ask loads of really pressing difficult questions?

It was almost as bad as that bloke on channel 5 when Tyson Fury went on his rant. But that was quite funny, "Go on then....one more..."

But there was a time and a place for Ricky to speak, and it wasnt at that moment in time. But they dont give a shit, they just want a reaction.

Thats what its all about unfortunately.

Its no different from the happy slap culture, where they cant wait to get a camera down your throat for cheap entertainment. The media and news is exactly the same, they know there is a time and a place, even the interviewers feel embarrassed, but they still push along with it. Prostitutes to their bosses, Sky are the worst for it, they have no heart or decency what so ever! ESPECIALLY the football interviewers. Andy Burton is it? Complete whore, and they've got a new bloke now, he's just as bad as Burton, from the same cloth. School of wannabee's, school of no heart or conscience.

They really, genuinely, dont give a f*ck, as long as it means they get a reaction for TV.

Its ok anyway, cause these corps just dont get any of my money!
