I guess the launch day will be this Thursday.



Also Setanta Sports will be showing every Home Nations, England, Scotland, Wales, Northern Ireland and Republic Of Ireland, away matches so looks like ITV will only be showing roughly 5 England home matches so what a raw deal for terrestrial tv again

I think Terry Alderton was supposed to be doing Setanta Sports News overnight when there is no news

Theres very little info on Setantas site about it, you would think they would be banging on about it

The studio sounds great, Johnnie has posted on the Setanta Sports News page that its yellow, with many presentation points, and with a newsroom in view aswell. It would be fantastic if the atrium was in view aswell, even though the studio is small, I'm glad theres many presenation points, I wonder if theres a CSO/Newswall.

I'm glad Alex Hyndman has joined, she was hardly seen on Sky News doing the sport. Shame we don't know what time it launches, I was thinking sometime in the morning. Not long now anyway!

PROGRAMME ALERT lol!

Someone on another forum has said Setanta Sports News launches tonight at midnight. Also, the studio space is the one on the ground floor which Channel 5 used to have, which was quite big IIRC. Also, the Sky channel number has now been taken off the promo, it now only reads the Virgin Media number.

The Setanta website is still displaying the Sky EPG 435 number, and the promo being played out on the test freq also shows the Sky number.



What a bizarre time to launch a news channel.

Thats true, I cant believe all we've seen is a 50 second promo (maybe not even that) and a banner saying "SETANTA SPORTS NEWS LAUNCHES THURSDAY" on the website. We dont even have a time! Its not being well publicised is it! You would think they would be going on about it a lot, with it being a competitor to SSN and all that.

ha ha - The promo just stopped playing on the test freq, the screen went black for about 30 seconds, then the promo returned.
