Bring the Ashes back to terrestrial TV

It may be a day or so old, but as a fan of both cricket and the BBC, I think it essential I direct everyone here. The campaign to get the greatest of sports, especially it's major events like the ashes, back onto the beeb is gaining momentum. Cricket hasn't been on terrestrial telly since 2005; since then you've had to pay the p'tahks at Sky to watch it. ''While Henry Blofeld, aka Blowers, who has just retired from cricketing commentating, said he wanted to see daily highlights on terrestrial TV, but the big money from television rights meant it was likely the full games would remain on subscription.'' Nonetheless like Blowers I think this is worth campaigning for. How lovely would it be to be able to just tune in and watch some cricket again - England's current performance aside, of course!

Comments

England Australia is on BT sport. If you're on BT broadband it's cheaper to watch than on Sky. Is it worth paying to watch the current England side get beaten easily by a good Aussie side? Still, you can always listen to it on BBC radio.

Certainly! there's always good old Test Match Special!
