Test Cricket continuing on Sky Sports Main Event so Premier League moves

as title a late decision to continue broadcasting Cricket on Sky Sports Main Event means the Premier League game  programming due to start at 1pm today is not being broadcast on that channel.

Looks like it might be on Sky Sports Extra at 2pm .

I don’t know if anyone from BT TV can confirm what is happening ?

Well the Bournemouth v Man City game is in progress and does not appear to being transmitted to BT TV customers.

currently SSME has cricket and Sky Sports Extra is  off air.

Not good

Re: Sky Sport channels

Right who do I complain to ? 

The whole aim of the invisible channel Sky Sports Extra is when Premier League games cannot be shown on Main Event So on that at the moment it is some sort of Cricket game on Sky Sports Extra is showing bog all not the Bournemouth V Man City game 😡 I think I should get some kind of refund !

No Football on Sky Sports Main Event or Sky Sports Extra

The Man City vs Bournmouth game is NOT broadcasting on Sky Sports Main Event or Sky Sports Extra. Totally unacceptable & mis-sold the the package on the basis of seeing all premier league matches broadcast by Sky. 

What the hell is going on & whats the point of Sky Sports Extra as NOTHING is ever broadcast on that channel???

Hi Everyone, I'm really sorry about that, there was a last minute change to the scheduling on Sky Sports Main Event.  The match is now showing on Sky Sports Extra and HD.

@zulu17 

Bournemouth - City EPL ..... It started being broadcast on 'extra' 38 minutes in - still currently on air (although half time). Seems like someone 'forgot' to switch the service over - but you would assume that the switch would be automatic eh? Vastly tooooo complex in these days of AI and intelligent washing machines.....

Great that the cricket remains on Main Event. But someone at Sky dropped the ball, pun intended. 38 mins late! Come on.

The decision to stay with the cricket at 1pm today on Sky Sports Main Event is perfectly understandable.

The absence of the Premier League coverage on Sky Sports Extra until approximately 2:38pm is less understandable given that is approaching 100 minutes from when Sky changed scheduling.?

I imagine that those who set recordings of the Premier League programming might find a surprise when they view their recordings.

Even the more reason for BT & Sky to implement their wholesale agreement as they stated they would!
