Did anyone catch One News tonight (Wednesday)?
After the sport I'm sure they said TV One were going to show some live Football games but I can't find anything on their website.


Anyone know if/when these games will be shown?


Cheers.

FA Cup final, plus something else (I think)

Basically I think cos ESPN are useless and not showing the FA Cup, despite owning the rights to do so.  There was a thought that it might not be shown here fullstop.  Funny Sky didn't pick it up.

At least it means we'll get widescreen coverage, possibly even with the BBC commentary rather than those idiots from ESPN.  At worst it'll be sourced from SBS or Setanta Australia (it's on the anti-siphoning lis in Australia)

Good news for soccer/football fans, harks back to 'the day' when the FA Cup final was always shown on TVNZ

Good point.  Will probably be a better job than TV3 would do.
