All those channels you speak of, belong to Sky!! So of course they're going to advertise there. Primetime only have one, for crying out loud. Which other channels do you expect them to be on? ITV? Channel 5?

Get real, mate.
I think your wrong, I wouldnt say primetime dont have a budget for advertising, more it seems they are unwilling to spend. Starting up a tv channel isnt cheap, and there must be serious backing to do so. But to make it a success in the media game the key is advertising. And far to many new media companies are missing a beat by trying to work on a shoestring. This all comes down to the backer, and their experience in the industry. It seems to me primetime (their owners) are new to the game of televised sport. I'd say they probably have a couple of really experienced consultants working with them who are probably pulling their hair out at lack of investment into the advertising front. For example did you know you could get down to the cinema to watch the world cup in 3d or this years wimbledon final? No? But you could, its just the company putting it together didnt advertise other than handing out flyers outside the cinema. And what happened? it was a failure. I do not buy that primetime simply dont have the budget.

As for the channels comment, your totally missing my point. What I was saying is that Sky had already done a big advertising campaign for the mcloskey fight. Yet the fight still only got 60,000 buys (on the back of a sky advertising campaign). Yet primetime claim they will get over 100,000 buys for this fight with zero advertising campaign.

Still havent seen any ads.

Any shedule for today venusdiablo?

Is anyone else registered to Primetime on here?

If so didnt anyone receive an automated call from Primetime? Khan was actually speaking (recorded) promoting the fight.

How big were the ads? Even a quarter of a page or less?
The hardcore fans that want to watch the fight will already know about it. The interested casuals will generally read the papers for other sports news (most likely football) and learn that way, the rest were unlikely to care anyway.

Itís Khanís problem if he canít generate buys on PPV Ė donít see why it bothers you.

again it comes back to sports fans that dont buy papers will watch SSN, this is the single biggest factor when it comes to sky promoting ppvs, its free for a start and nearly every sports fan in the country pops it on at least once every couple of days, some check it hourly, primetime just dont have that outlet.

Sky could very easily be pedantic twats when it comes to khan, after all he did leave them. It would serve sky's agenda when it comes to Khan to not allow primetime to advertise his fights on their channel, as when Khan realises his ppv cut from Primetime, despite taking 100% of it (hence Judah refusing to do UK press, again something i don't think would've happened on Sky). It will still be next to nothing as it will sell **** all and he'll want back on sky. Sky can then welcome him back with open arms, at a lower cost than they were originally paying for his fights, as Amir will have realised there isn't anywhere left to go, unless he wants back on ITV for even less than Primetime. Sky run this shit in the UK, how Khans amateur team haven't realised this yet really is beyond me.

Sky cannot legally reject any advertising that meets the approved standards, even if it’s a rival. That’s the reason you see ads for ITV, Virgin and BT on the network. Primetime can advertise wherever they want on TV, but I get the feeling the costs probably outweigh the benefits.

Just explain to the UK public that Khan is fighting the p4p #1 fighter in the world


Judah: "I am still the pound for pound the best fighter in the world"
