Was it? Less cars on the grid and less manufacturers involved today than there was in 2014 on FTA

No more than 15mins of ads per hour on average, just as the law has been for donkeys....

....People seem to forget that Channel 7 carried the last hour of the 2014 Supercheap Auto 1000 ad-free as well

One big impact will be the selling value just went down the gurglar. I would not be surprised to see some activity in that area before things get too dire.

There are too many outs of this. Anything "integrated" into the broadcast - competitions, internal program promotions, live crosses to network "stars", lower thirds stuck over the show.

Self-regulated TV industry **** in its own nest and for what its worth, you don't get all that bullshit on Foxtel.

The reality is lots of stuff that should be counted in the 15 minutes isn't, because the lunatics run the asylum.

Certainly no more big money media deals.

Ultimately, Supercars could have come to a better compromise with ch10 over a more palatable FTA deal. A simple race-only package might have worked, and ch10 could have done whatever prac/qualy highlights and colour stories on RPM.

But here we are...

Ten/CBS have no interest, they dropped F1 immediately upon the purchase, didn't they? While SC is just seeing through the existing contract.

I was under the impression it was due to Murdoch throwing his toys out of the pram after the creditors favoured CBS over Murdoch/Gordon for the purchase of the network...

Him and his mates had their time, made a bundled, and ran off. Everyone else that stuck around, got screwed.

Foxtel paid around $200 million more for the current deal that what was on offer from fta.That was money they were in no position financially to say no to.That money has propped up the series since 2015.
That money will not be on offer again.Back in 2014 Foxtel was a hugely profitable company.In 2018 they lost $418 million and that is the new normal for them with no way out due to programming contracts.By September 2020 they have to finance $1.6 billion (thatís right billion) worth of debt.Last month they needed to do the same with $235 million of debt and couldnít find anyone to loan it to them..Murdoch had to reach into his own pocket.At some time in the next 16 months he will get sick of doing this and Foxtel may well be declared bankrupt and shut down.This is a worldwide problem for pay tv.In the USA one of the main pay networks has lost 20 million subscribers in the last 2 years.
What this means for Supercars is either that after 2020 Foxtel wonít even bid for rights or if they do they will only offer about 10% of what they are paying now.FTA tv is in pretty terminal financial decline so there will be no big offer there either.Im guessing they will try a paid streaming model of the current Foxtel coverage supplemented by a slightly larger fta coverage.
As for Cochrane does anyone who ever knew him truly believe he would have said no to $200 mill ,a significant percentage of which he would have got personally?

Haven't you been one of the biggest proponents of the Foxtel TV deal on here for the last five years?

Great contribution to the conversation! Have you copied and pasted this from your posts around the time Homebush got the axe?
