Shambolic auto-advert use - Friday Night Fights

(Complaint sent direct to BT Sport too)

 

For about the last FOUR weeks the live boxing show Friday Night Fights has had chaotic adbreaks

 

(e.g. A 10 round boxing fight has an automatic scheduled 1 minute break every 3 minutes - not a problem - but some fights end early and yet the BT Sport coverage then STAYS on auto-adbreak every 3 minutes! Obviously cutting away from live interviews etc)

 

Absolutely shambolic - and it happens about 15 times each week

 

(Like that Liverpool v Everton cup game on ITV which unexpectedly went to extra time and they then kept auto-cutting to adverts and missed a goal)

 

It keeps happening every week about 15 times - sort it out!

Re: Shambolic auto-advert use - Friday Night Fights

I don't see why it cannot be addressed ... afterall BT has the experience of its tennis programes for example where adbreaks  occur regularlly when the players sit down (every two games). So clearly they have a process of including regular breaks at variable times so it should be entirely feasible for them to schedule their boxing breaks inline with the host broadcasters cutting to their ad breaks.
