Ryder Cup TV Schedule 2010

 

Ryder Cup Telecast Monday Evening Debacle Update

Channel 10/ONE HD has taken the unfortunate decision – or non decision – not to cover the delayed Ryder Cup singles matches live but to instead continue their simultaneous Commonwealth Games coverage on both channels.

There will apparently now be a delayed coverage beginning at midnight and going through to 6am.

You would think this situation would be the perfect opportunity for the network to use its new digital capabilities to cover both events.

Instead, they have severely let down the Australian golfing viewing public and ONE HD has damaged it’s fledgling sporting broadcaster reputation.

Plently of people are making a noise about this on the Channel 10 Forums and complaining to Channel 10 directly would also be a good idea.

Why the hell have two channels (or three in many locations with 10, ONE HD and ONE SD) broadcasting the same event when there is another would class event taking place in prime time.

ONE HD shows so much repeating crap and here they had such a good opportunity to exhibit their sporting nouse and credibility.

 

 

Colin Montgomerie and Padraig Harrington with the Ryder CupTHE 2010 Ryder Cup is shaping as a compelling contest and as an added bonus for many the event will be broadcast live on Australian free to air television.

Much of the cup, a biennial international match play tournament contested between the best golfers from the United States and Europe, will also be taking place at more viewer friendly times than Australians are often faced with.

The 2010 Ryder Cup, the 38th in history, will be held between 1 – 3 October, at The Celtic Manor Resort, City of Newport, Wales.

Two wily old competitors, Colin Montgomerie and Corey Pavin will respectively captain the European and US sides.

Australian television coverage will be live on Channel Ten’s ONE HD and there will also be delayed coverage on Foxtel.

  1. Totally agree… I mean if live lawn bowls can be shhowed to not show such a exciting finish to one of golfs greatest competitions is a disgrace!

    Whats worse is that as they have the rights cant even watch live on the internet…. a huge let down by the broadcaster!

    Why it doesnt surprise me but really peeved with this coverage – or lack of it!!

  2. John,
    According to the ONE online tv guide it was supposed to be on at midnight. People have been calling Channel 10 but they get office staff who say “we know nothing.”
    Very professional Channel 10. really impressive that at 0.13 am you are giving people the choice of badminton or badminton.

  3. The Ryder cup is on and I am sitting here watching womens Badmington. I am truly disgusted and this has ruined my evening. Thanks for nothing ONE HD. You absolutely suck and unless no one else is screening an even from now on I will refuse to watch your crap station

  4. The Delayed telecast finally came on at 12.37am – after eight matches had already been decided. Once again, wonderful LIVE coverage by ONE HD

  5. A very strange decision and a shame with such a great finish. At least I got to watch endless swimming on three separate channels. I do feel sorry for the fill in public holiday staff at Sydney who sounded like they had had a long day fielding calls. I do hope ONE makes efforts to get the British open etc next year rather than channel 9. At least I saw some golf on ONE.
